    Reservations for Blu Bayou waiting list available?

    Hi there, Emma! 

    Welcome, and thank you for bringing your question about dining at the Disneyland Resort to us here at planDisney. As a Disney foodie myself, meal planning is an important part of preparing for a visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! 

    It just so happens that my favorite choice for a table-service meal is Blue Bayou Restaurant at Disneyland Park. This iconic restaurant serves up delicious Cajun- and Creole-inspired cuisine and is located right inside the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. You can even request a table near the water upon arrival and wave to Guests floating by in boats headed to the pirate-filled waters below!

    Guests can begin booking tables at restaurants that accept advance dining reservations up to 60 days in advance, and due to this location's popularity, I recommend attempting to secure your spot as soon as possible. In my experience, most table-service reservations become available online at 6:00 a.m. Pacific Time. When your booking day arrives, plan to sign into your Disney account on disneyland.com or in the Disneyland mobile app a few minutes early and be ready to search for Blue Bayou Restaurant. It helps if you can be flexible with your dates and meal times as you search for availability. 

    However, if you’re not able to book Blue Bayou Restaurant or another restaurant on your must-do list on the first try, don’t give up! Availability can and does fluctuate, so feel free to keep checking as your trip approaches. There's also the possibility of joining the Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability list on the day you arrive. This is a feature of the Disneyland mobile app that’s available at select dining locations in the theme parks.

    I hope this information helps you make your dining plans, Emma. Please stop by again with any other questions you may have as your pixie-dusted vacation draws near!

    Wishing you magic,
