    Hi there, Going to Magic Kingdom in Nov, 2017 and 1 of the things I was most looking forward to was eating at Be Our Guest restaurant. I just realized that I am to late now for reservations and I have a group of 5. Is there still a possibility to get in?

    Welcome Brittany ~

    Your trip will be here before you know it and I bet you are too excited to sleep already!

    Be Our Guest Restaurant is indeed a super popular dining location. I'd recommend that you keep checking online and on the My Disney Experience mobile app every few days. Also keep trying by calling 407-WDW-DINE. If you haven't had success prior to leaving for your visit, keep checking even once you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort. Guests will sometimes make advanced dining reservations early and once their trips get closer and they start firming up their plans, they may cancel some of their dining reservations which will free up times for other Guests.

    You could also opt for some of your second choices of dining locations or try new places. We have discovered some of our favorites that way. You can try walking up as some Guests cancel last minute for a number of reasons. I will admit that I've never had success doing that at Be Our Guest Restaurant. If you try walking up, I'd suggest going just as they start to serve (lunch or dinner) so it gives you the widest window of time. If you have little ones in your party that may be disappointed if you don't get in, you may want to send a "scout" ahead and you distract their attention while someone is checking.

    There is still time so keep trying and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. In the meantime, please feel free to visit us with all of your planning questions. We are hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
