    I’m on the app looking to make a reservation for the Blue Bayou. But it isn’t giving the option for 60 days out. It only goes to 1/6. Today is 11/10. 60 days from today would be 1/9. Any idea why the availability date hasn’t moved past 1/6?

    Well, hey there, David! Welcome to planDisney. Seeing you here with such a great planning question is just the bees' knees!

    If you're anything like me, David, one of the most important parts of a Disney vacation (or any vacation, for that matter) is the food. My dining reservation date for my upcoming Disneyland Resort adventure is quickly approaching, and like you, Blue Bayou Restaurant is definitely on this Louisiana girl's must-do list. It's less than magical to hear that you're having trouble making your dining reservation, but I'm more than happy to help. Now, let's dig a little deeper, shall we?

    You are absolutely correct that you can make your dining reservations 60 days in advance, but I think I see the problem. Unfortunately, at this time, it looks like Blue Bayou Restaurant will be closed from January 7th through January 12th and will reopen for both lunch and dinner on January 13, 2024. If your visit is long enough, go ahead and make your reservation on the 13th or later to dine along the bayou.

    If your visit doesn't extend to January 13th, don't fret! I suggest making a dining reservation at Cafe Orleans for a delicious meal with the same Cajun and Creole flair that is served up at Blue Bayou. Cafe Orleans even offers the famous Monte Cristo Sandwich and pomme frites for a smaller price than at Blue Bayou. But shhhhh ... that will be our little secret!

    While this probably wasn't the answer you were hoping for, David, I hope it was at least helpful! Wishing you the most magical and memorable time dining down in New Orleans at Disneyland Resort. You're almost there! Please feel free to stop by any time with any questions you have along the way. Think of planDisney as your friends on the other side. Laissez les bon temps rouler (let the good times roll)!

    Blue skies and sunshine,
