    Hi Panel, We are going to the World Dec 15-Dec 19 on the dining plan. Since I have no luck making an ADR. I am still trying to secure character dining with Mickey for my 2 year old. Which is the best place to try for stand bys and last minute cancels?Thx.

    Hi Teresa,

    Yippee, not to much longer now! I understand your stress level. It is difficult when you are trying to obtain those precious dining reservations for your favorite locations. The boss man himself, Mickey Mouse, is a popular dinner guest and it is hard to get those reservations. Personally I would continue to try calling 407-939-3463 everyday, prior to your departure, to see if there are any cancellations. Once on property, be sure to speak to your resort concierge to see if they can find any openings. If those options do not work out, I have found the best luck to try and get a walk up table is right at the beginning of the restaraunt opening or near the end of the day. The most popular dining times are often hard to find openings but be sure to speak to the hostess regarding any suggestions they may have.

    Good luck!
