    The last three times I have been to Disney World, we were unable to get into Belle's Castle for eating or looking around. I really have tried all I know to do. I feel like just giving up on it and going somewhere else. Any solutions out there?

    Hi Natalie,

    Thanks for bringing this question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm sorry you've been having difficulty securing a reservation at Be Our Guest Restaurant. I have some ideas that might help.

    The more flexible you can be with your schedule, the better chance you will have of securing a reservation. Be Our Guest Restaurant is a Quick-Service dining location for breakfast and lunch and a Table-Service location at dinner. However, reservations are taken for all three dining periods. If you can be open to all three dining periods, you'll have a better chance of securing a reservation. In addition to checking online for a cancellation daily, I've had some luck when calling Disney Dining Reservations. The Cast Members have the ability to search multiple days and dining periods at a time. For example, they can search breakfast, lunch and dinner for the duration of your trip much more efficiently than you can from home!

    I have been most successful in finding a cancellation a few days before our trip. Guests tend to finalize their plans as their vacation approaches, so you will have the best chance of getting a reservation a few days prior to your vacation. Persistence pays off!

    Quick Tip: You may be interested in making a FastPass+ reservation for Enchanted Tales with Belle, where you will get to interact with Belle and perhaps even become part of the story!

    Please stop back with any other questions, Natalie. Wishing you many magical memories!
