    Kind of a last minute trip to Disney. All of the character dining meals are full. Is there a way to find out about cancellations? Specifically Chef Mickey's or Mickey's Backyard BBQ?

    Hi Laurel!

    Chef Mickey's and Mickey's Backyard BBQ are two of my favorite character dining experiences!  You can't beat the classic characters.  If I had to pick between the two, Mickey's Backyard BBQ gets my vote because of the unique experience you get with dinner and dancing with Mickey.  

    The best advice I have for you is to keep trying!  You never know when another Guest will cancel their reservations.  If I have my heart set on a particular Walt Disney World restaurant that doesn't currently have availability, I'll keep checking every day, sometimes twice a day.  I often get lucky and find reservations show up for popular restaurants the week prior to my desired date and especially the day before.  The cancellation policy is one day in advance for Table-Service restaurants, so availability will fluctuate last minute as Guests rearrange their plans.

    Sending pixie dust and luck your way!
