    I’m trying to make a reservation at Be Our Guest restaurant in the Magic Kingdom. Times keep showing as available but it will not go through. 12/26 Anytime

    Hi Cary! Welcome to planDisney.

    Dining in Be Our Guest Restaurant at Magic Kingdom Park is truly magical. My family loves exploring Beast's Castle and seeing so many details that tell the story of Belle and Beast's adventures. When the dining room proudly presents your dinner, you will be wowed by the delicious meal. The dishes are so happy to hear you're planning a visit, so tie a napkin 'round your neck and we will share our tips for getting a reservation at this very popular restaurant.

    I'm sorry to hear you were having issues with the dining reservation system. What you experienced has happened to me, and I believe it happens when someone else is just a split second ahead of you in going through the steps to make the reservation. Like Beast waiting for the last rose petal to fall, you will need patience and a plan. Keep checking - use both the My Disney Experience mobile app and the Walt Disney World dining reservations webpage. The reservation system is dynamic, so when someone changes their plans, you may be able to pick up a reservation they dropped. In my experience, reservation availability begins to open up again about a week in advance of your visit, so there is hope. Continue to check for reservations even on the day of - I have gotten some amazing reservations and times by checking in the mornings during my visit.

    I'm sending you pixie dust that you are able to get your reservation for next month, Cary! If you don't manage a reservation at Be Our Guest Restaurant, may I suggest a stop at Gaston's Tavern? Definitely take a photo with the Gaston fountain out front, and then enjoy a delicious Beauty and the Beast-themed snack.

    Thank you for stopping by with your question. As you count down to your visit, be sure to read the Disney Parks Blog for news and updates - there is so much magic in the air at the Walt Disney World Resort right now and they have great planning tips. Your friends here at planDisney are happy to help if you have any further questions, so please be our Guest and come back and see us!
