    There are no reservations left to have a princess meal (at Magic Kingdom or Epcot) during our stay on Oct 6-10. I'm hoping that someone may cancel and we can get in but I don't know the best way to go about this. Is there a waiting list we can get on?

    Hi, Karen!

    Do not give up just yet!  Since there is a deposit required when booking a character dining experience, you will see guests will cancel their reservations up to 24 hours prior to their scheduled time.  Check daily, and once you are in Walt Disney World, you can check for any open tables right on your smartphone by downloading the My Disney Experience app.  You can also stop by your resort concierge, guest services in any park, or for a real outside chance, try walking up and asking if there are any open tables. 

    If you are still unable to secure a reservation, you can still get that magical experience by dining at Be Our Guest inside Beast's Castle in the Magic Kingdom.  While there are no princesses at this meal (not a character dining location) you will be amazed by the beauty of this restaurant.  You will truly feel like you stepped right into the Beauty and Beast movie when you see how beautiful it is.  No reservations are needed at lunch, but get in line by 10:30 am for the shortest lines. 

    I will wave my magic wand and send some pixie dust your way in hopes that you get the perfect dining reservation for your family.  Good luck!

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
