    Did not know 180 days before trip (which I didn't have) you need to get dining reservations to Be our Guest. Going jan 18th with great niece and nephew any suggestions on getting in? Told they have none for that date.

    Hello Kathleen!
    Sometimes it can be difficult to secure Advanced Dining Reservations at the popular restaurants in Walt Disney World especially for the amazing Be Our Guest Restaurant in the Magic Kingdom Park! I typically use both the online system and the phone system to make my Advanced Dining Reservations. I would keep trying online and over the phone to get the Advanced Dining Reservations that you desire because there are typically cancelations and often spots will open up. Sometimes persistence really pays off! I would recommend that you use the My Disney Experience website or My Disney Experience mobile app to check everyday for availability and to make your Advanced Dining Reservations. Also you may want to consider trying for breakfast or lunch at the Be Our Guest Restaurant instead of dinner which may give you a better chance of getting an Advanced Dining Reservation there. You can also try for a walk up reservation on that particular day by physically going to the Be Our Guest restaurant to ask if they are taking any walk up reservations for that day. I hope that you get a Advanced Dining Reservation to Be Our Guest Restaurant and that all of your meals are magical on your January 2018 Walt Disney World vacation! 

    Keep Dreaming Big!
