    When making dining reservations is there a way of finding out which restaurants have availability e.g i want lunch on 3rd Aug rather than clicking on each restaurant to see can i just pull up all those with space?

    Hi Andrea!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question - I'm happy to help!

    When it comes to dining on a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, there are so many amazing options to choose from! The good news is, there are tools available to help you narrow down your choices - by availability, location, dining experience, cuisine, price range, and even Guest rating. 

    To check the availability for a specific date and time, simply visit the Dining page on the Walt Disney World Resort website. At the top, you'll see boxes to select a Date, Time (specific times, or more general terms such as Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner), and Party Size. Once you've entered the specifics of your travel party, select "Search Times" to see a list of all the dining locations with availability at that time. You will typically be given three choices of times on or near the time you selected, unless there is less availability or no space at all for Guests. 

    You have the option to narrow your dining search even further by using the filters across the top of the page. The filter I use the most is "Cuisine", where you can select from 20+ types of cuisine, including such selections as German, Italian, Mediterranean and Seafood. Steer me toward the Sushi, please!! All of the same dining planning tools are available on both the Walt Disney World website and in the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    I hope this helps, and you're able to find the perfect dining experience for your travel party. Please come visit us here at planDisney with any questions before your visit - we love to share tips and advice to add a little extra pixie dust to your Walt Disney World vacation!
