    I’m looking for a spot to open at Sci Fi diner. Can I set an alert in my app/account for any openings that come up?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Allison! I simply adore the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theatre Restaurant! I’ve taken my son there a few times and have already booked a family lunch there for this summer. I remember eating here when I was a kid and the experience is still just as magical!

    And trust me, I’ve had some serious trouble booking one or two high demand reservations myself! I’ve only just now been able to find a reservation for Be Our Guest that works for our family for the first time in over two years! An early wake up call 180 days before our vacation check in was my only hope to getting something we needed (you can make reservations starting at 6am). Sadly, there are no alerts or pings that you can receive to notify you when a table comes available in the My Disney Experience App. The only option is some elbow grease put in a few days a week to check for an open reservation. I find that I have the most success about 24-48 hours before my preferred dining time. This is when most reservation cancellations happen, leaving me to pick up a perfect table for 4 for my restaurant. Of course, you can always check as a walk up early in the afternoon to see if a table is available, and eating at an “unconventional time” helps, too!

    If I can offer more dining suggestions or perhaps a quick service experience that would be fun, please let me know. You’ve started a rumbly in my tumbly! ~ Lindsey P.
