    my reservation dining window just opened for November 22nd but all reservations for character dining at all parks and restaurants are booked yet there is a chefs mickey opening for today. Something must not be right on the booking app. please help

    Hi there, Joshua!

    Gosh, how frustrating that must have been to log in and not see any reservations!

    I am guessing what you experienced was some sort of glitch since I am able to see advance dining reservations for a party of 4 for that entire week. What I do not see; however, is Character Dining, so those may have been booked up already. If you are having trouble on the My Disney Experience Mobile App, I suggest you try the desktop version of My Disney Experience

    Note that for many locations, if you have a party larger than 5 or 6, you may have to split your reservations among two parties of 3, or you may call (407) 939-5277 for larger groups. So, if you were searching for a large party, it may have been correct that there was no availability. 

    Joshua, reservations are always changing, so keep checking periodically to get the reservations that you want. You can also set up alerts to be notified of reservations on third-party websites. I actually book most of my reservations just a day or two before we dine. As people change plans on the fly, I am able to grab those cancelations. 

    I hope that this puts your mind at ease and I hope that the rest of your planning journey goes more smoothly.
