    Hi, I am planning of visiting Epcot on December 24th and was waiting for the 60 days before arrival for getting a reservation but there are no reservations for any days in the next 60 days at Le Cellier. Can you help?

    Hi, Sharel!

    It can be frustrating to have your heart set on a dining reservation at Walt Disney World, and then have it be so difficult to get the reservation you want. It happens to all of us at some point. 

    As you might be able to guess, December 24th is one of the busiest days of the year at the Walt Disney World theme parks, and under those circumstances, it can be tough to find a dining reservation at Le Cellier Steakhouse, which is one of the most popular restaurants at EPCOT. To add an extra wrinkle, Le Cellier is one of the restaurants included with the Candlelight Processional Dining Packages. If your heart is set on Le Cellier, I encourage you to keep checking! If you can be flexible, check for lunch instead of dinner or pick an off-peak time, like a later dinner. But there's still quite a bit of time between now and December, and people cancel plans and change reservations all the time. Check whenever you think of it.

    There are also some other really great steak places you may want to put on your list of places to check for reservations. Steakhouse 71 at Disney's Contemporary Resort has become a favorite for my family, and you can't go wrong with the classic Yachtsman Steakhouse. Two other options for a great steak are STK Orlando and Shula's Steakhouse, which is fairly convenient to EPCOT. You could pop over to the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel and be back at EPCOT to end the evening. 

    I'm crossing my fingers for you, Sharel! I hope you get the reservation you want!
