    I'm so disappointed, Im taking my boy to Disney for his 2nd birthday. My trip was short notice (2 weeks) and Im not able to get a table at Ohanas or Chef Mickey's. Any idea on how I can get table please? Any help would be so greatly appreciated.

    Don't give up Daniel! I'm at Disney World now, and there is no question that the free dining promotion has filled up restaurants, especially the most popular ones like Chef Mickey's. I first recommend that you keep trying between now and when you leave, as you never know when someone is going to cancel. I also recommend going in person to the restaurant at off-peak hours. They might be better able to accomodate you if you arrive at 4 pm rather than 6 pm. Check with your resort concierge, as they will also do what they can to help you secure a reservation. And don't despair if you don't get you're first choice. There are many fantastic counter service spots to consider. There are also several full service spots that don't take reservations, such as Beaches and Cream Soda Shop at the Beach Club, the ESPN Clubon the Boardwalk, and Paradiso 37 at Downtown Disney.

    Have a fantastic vacation Daniel!
