    My husband and I were thinking about booking a last minute disney trip but are concerned that dining reservations will be a problem. We would be arriving on Nov. 28th for 6 nights. We would be on the deluxe dining plan. Will sit down dining be available?

    Hi, Debbie!  Because you are within your 180 day advanced dining reservation window, you can go online at and see what you might be able to book before you plan your trip.  If you can be a little bit flexible, you should be able to find something.  I just booked a weekend trip for myself and two of my daughters, and we've been able to find last minute dining reservations at quite a few locations for the three of us, and then a few for five people when we meet up with the Grandparents and Disney Mom Joanne.  

    This may be a great time to try a few new restaurants, or venture over to the resorts and try someplace for lunch that you may have only previously enjoyed for dinner.  Don't rule out Downtown Disney, either, as there are some great restaurants there that I know had last minute openings when I checked.  

    Once you've determined that there are dining reservations available, you might feel more comfortable booking your trip!  

    I hope you get to go and have a wonderful vacation!
