    I have planned a Disneyland trip 9/19-9/22/21 i just bought my Believe Key (YAY!) I have been trying to schedule dining reservations at Blue Bayou for months! nothing available....so i figured i would make them for trip in Nov....nothing. not taking them?

    Hello, Robin! Welcome back to planDisney!

    Hooray! You will be enjoying all the magic and fun at the Disneyland Resort in just a few days! We have been getting lots of questions lately here at planDisney about dining reservation availability. It seems to be that reservations for Blue Bayou Restaurant and a few others have been very hard to make as of late. We aren't quite sure why this is or why reservations aren't being released at the 60-day mark as they have been in the past. I would keep checking online and on the Disneyland app as your travel dates approach or even while you are in the parks to see if anything opens up. You can also try to stop by the restaurant to see if they are taking any walk-up reservations that day. I've heard that some guests have had better luck with walk-up availability than with booking a reservation in advance. 

    Some restaurants at the parks, like River Belle Terrace, Cafe Orleans, and Carthay Circle Restaurant, allow you to join the walk-up list directly from the Disneyland app. Simply go to the map view in the app and select dining from the drop-down menu. Then find and tap on the restaurant you want to dine at and tap the "Join Walk-up List" button. While this particular option isn't available for Blue Bayou Restaurant, you may have luck getting a table at some of your other favorite restaurants using this feature. Keep in mind that in order to join the walk-up lists from the app that you need to have location services enabled and be close to the restaurant. 

    I hope this helps! Have a deliciously good time at the Disneyland Resort!
