    I am looking at Disneyland dining reservations at 6am 60 days out as soon as the calendar changes yet not seeing options for Blue Bayou. I realize it is a popular restaurant and goes fast, but wonder if there is another time the Blue Bayou is released?

    Greetings Rose!

    Welcome to planDisney! The Blue Bayou Restaurant is such a gem, isn't it? This Creole girl has been loving it since I was a tiny Mouseketeer. Ah, I can imagine the vibes now: the calm elegance, twinkling firefly lights, the gentle scent of water, Pirates of the Caribbean boats drifting by, and of course, the mouthwatering flavors of the Big Easy perched upon your plate.

    Rose, Blue Bayou is such a popular location that getting a  dining reservation here has always been hard to come by. I was able to confirm that the area is undergoing renovations during the week of January 7th and is not accepting reservations for dining that week. However, I also tried checking for your January 25th visit, but alas, no tables are available. My pal, Panelist Amanda D, is a regular guest of the Blue Bayou, and she let me know that this location can sometimes open up reservations closer to the date, even though the resort usually opens them up 60 days in advance.

    My tip? Keep an eye on the dining website leading up to your visit. Oh, and here's a trick I've used: the walk-up list. If it's all booked online, swing by the restaurant in person as soon as they open to check if they have any tables available for the day.

    I know it's not the news you were hoping for, Rose. But please feel free to send me another question, and I'll get you a quick answer. I'd love to share more of my favorite tips to help make your Disney dreams come true!

    See ya real soon,
