    We are planning a trip for october 15-22 for 12-16 people but have not made room reservations yet. We would like to have breakfast at cinderella castle on the 18th. What can we do to increase our chances of getting a breakfast reservation?

    Hi Christina!

    Getting a breakfast reservation for Cinderella's Royal Table is probably the hardest dining reservation to get at Walt Disney World!  You definitely want to try first thing in the morning on the first day you are eligible. 

    If you are staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, then your first eligible day to make a dining reservation is 180 days in advance of your check in on 15 October.  If the date you want is booked, then I would try the other dates during your trip.  Statistically speaking, your best chance of success will be for 22 October, the last day of your trip, assuming you call on the first day you can!

    If you are a "day guest" and staying off property, then your first eligible day to make a dining reservation for the day you want is 180 days before 18 October. 

    Good luck and enjoy planning the rest of your vacation!
