    I have no luck with dining reservations. I have a party of six. Is this the reason. Have your guests had any luck with walk on reservations

    Hi Jay! Welcome to planDisney.

    How exciting! You are only two days away from being immersed in The World's Most Magical Celebration at Walt Disney World Resort. Keep your eyes open for the golden Disney Fab 50 Character Collection statues. They make the perfect selfie background for photos to share with family and on social media.

    Gawrsh, I am sorry you are having a hard time finding Advance Dining Reservations. Those reservations can admittedly be hard to come by at this late date. Dining reservations open up 60 days in advance. But let me assure you, there are plenty of excellent quick-service locations throughout the parks, resorts, and Disney Springs. At Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park you can find Satu'li Canteen, a personal favorite of mine. Try out the Tachos from Woody's Lunch Box at Disney's Hollywood Studios. At Disney Springs, The Polite Pig is a crowd favorite for barbeque and sides.

    But, do not give up on table service locations with these tips. Due to the cancellation policy for sit-down locations, guests often cancel reservations 24-48 hours before their scheduled time. I often have better luck snagging hard-to-get reservations within a day of my desired dining time. Check the My Disney Experience Mobile App often by attempting to make reservations during your visit. On my last trip, I reserved California Grill at fireworks time on the same day. You can also try your luck on the app for immediate availability. Open the app, and tap on the "+" sign located at the bottom center. Select "Check Dining Availability," enter your party size and date, and choose "Now." While in the parks, some dining locations will also have signs posted if they have availability. I often see this at The Plaza Restaurant in Magic Kingdom Park.

    Need more suggestions? Always ask friendly Cast Members where they like to catch a bite! They know all those hidden gems.

    Keeping it Magical,
