    I’m going to Disneyland this month and noticed that the Blue Bayou doesn’t have any reservations available for the day we’re going. Do you know if it’s possible to be put on a waitlist just in case someone doesn’t show up for their reservation?

    Hi Katie, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for taking the time to reach out with your question about Dining Reservations at Disneyland Park.  It looks like you will be at the Happiest Place on Earth very soon, I bet you can't wait to walk through the gates for the "First Time in Forever"!

    Advanced Dining Reservations are available for booking up to 60 days in advance and do tend to fill up quickly.  I am sorry to see that you have not been able to secure your reservation for Blue Bayou Restaurant for your upcoming visit, hopefully you will be able to find a reservation prior to your arrival!  I strongly recommend checking the Disneyland Resort Website or the Disneyland Mobile app as much as possible, in hope that there will be a last minute cancelation and you will be online at the right time to catch it.  I have been able to find a hard to get reservation the night before my visit, close to the 24 hour cancelation window, I kept checking as often as I could.  

    If you haven't been able to secure your reservation for Blue Bayou Restaurant prior to your visit to Disneyland Park, once you arrive and walk through the gates, head over to the restaurant and ask the Cast Member if there are any Same-Day Walk-Up reservations available.  Most restaurants do have a limited number of Same-Day reservations depending on capacity. 

    Sending some extra Pixie Dust your way hoping you will be able to dine at Blue Bayou Restaurant in a few days, Katie.  If you have any last minute questions please send them to us here at planDisney we are always happy to help.
