    Would you rank these restaurants in order of hardest reservation to get: Artists Point, Be Our Guest (breakfast), Akershus, Tusker House, Crystal Palace, Garden Grill, Hollywood and Dine

    Hi Elizabeth,

    Wow! This question really caught my attention. And, while I am not aware of any truly accurate statistics on this topic, I am going to do my best.  In other words, I can only speak from experience about this as I don't have any hard evidence.  But, from the list of your restaurants listed I think getting the exact time of day will be the most challenging part. For example, if you want to be the first to eat at The Crystal Palace to get into the Magic Kingdom before it opens, that slot is more difficult to acquire than a later time, like 10:30 am. In my opinion, the time slots before any park opening are more difficult to obtain. With that said, here are my estimates for most difficult with "1" being the most difficult:

    1. Storybook Dining at Artist Point with Snow White
    2. Be Our Guest Restaurant
    3. Akershus Royal Banquet Hall
    3. The Crystal Palace
    4. Tusker House Restaurant
    5. Hollywood & Vine
    6. Garden Grill Restaurant

    My best advice is to make your dining reservations as soon as you are able- 180 days from your check in date if you are staying at a a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.

    See ya real soon!
