    I’m trying to make a character dining reservation from May 29 to June 1 and there’s nothing available. I need help. It’s my grandson 4th birthday.

    ¡Hola Ramon!

    Bienvenido a planDisney! What a wonderful way to celebrate your grandson’s birthday than a trip to Walt Disney World. Did you know that you can now hug your favorite characters? That’s right! You can capture that special moment when he gets to give his favorite mouse, Mickey, a huge hug and receive one in return!

    Character dining experiences can truly be the highlight of any family vacation! Being able to dine on delicious food while your favorite Princesses or member of the Fab Five: Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, or Pluto, come around to say hi is such a fun and memorable experience. Ramon, I’m sorry to hear that you are having trouble booking a Character dining experience. I checked your dates, and while no times are available at the moment, there can be reservations that open up before your arrival. My suggestion is to continue to check the website or the app for dining availability periodically throughout the days before you arrive. You can also check the My Genie Day dining tab on the My Disney Experience app for same-day reservations on the days you are in the parks. If you cannot score dining with characters during your stay, you can try to make sure that you catch the characters in the parks to grab that special photo memento with your grandson!
