    Is there any kind of notification or wait list for when fully booked restaurant reservations become available due to another party's cancellation?

    Hi Tommy!

    I'm sure you must be super excited knowing you will be at Walt Disney World Resort in the next few days!

    At this time, Walt Disney World Resort doesn't have a service like this. However, I love your question and it's clear there are some restaurants you are hoping to visit.

    I encourage you to sign in to your My Disney Experience account as much as possible in the coming days and check on available dining reservations. In particular, as you get closer to your arrival, you may see times open up due to other Guest's plans changing. Once you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort, I encourage you to drop by the restaurants you are hoping to visit and ask the Cast Members if there is any availability. You never know when some pixie-dust might come your way!

    My family and I love the restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort. Each trip, we try to visit at least one new restaurant. During our next visit, we will, of course, explore Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and enjoy some galactic dining and Batuu beverages. I cannot wait! My dining reservation is made for Oga's Cantina and there is a Fuzzy Tauntaun in my future!

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm sending happy thoughts and lots of pixie-dust your way as you continue making your dining reservations.

    Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
