    Do you have any idea when both Fantasmic dining packages and dinner reservations for Be Our Guest may open for November, 2018? Is there any way to be notified when these become available?

    Hi, Danielle! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you so much for stopping by to chat with us. Both the Fantasmic! Dining Package and Be Our Guest Restaurant are very popular with guests. These two Advance Dining Reservations usually see their available spots claimed as quickly as they become available.

    When I have booked Be Our Guest Restaurant for dinner, I have had better luck looking at days later in our vacation rather than towards the beginning. This does not always work for the Fastasmic! Dining Package as it sometimes does not get released at the 180-day mark like other Advance Dining Reservations, sometimes popping up a few days or weeks later!

    I took a quick peek at November's Advance Dining Reservations and see availability on most days for lunch Fantasmic! Dining Package seatings, but limited to no availability for breakfast and dinner at its three dining locations or for Be Our Guest Restaurant. Something to consider during your dates is that Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party will be going on at Magic Kingdom Park, which will significantly limit the hours for Be Our Guest Restaurant.

    Advance Dining Reservations are known to become available as you approach your vacation dates, as guests often change their plans. There is no official way through the Walt Disney World Resort website to receive notification of open reservations. However, if you are a member of Touring Plans website, then you can utilize their Reservation Finder. It will periodically search for availability and alert you when one has opened. I have had great success using it, most recently for a Be Our Guest lunch.

    Thanks for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted adventures!
