    I want to make reservations for the Blue Bayou but whenever I look ahead, for the furthest available date, it says it’s booked! How do I get a reservation??

    Hi there, Shay! Welcome to planDisney!

    It looks like your visit to the Happiest Place on Earth is coming up in a few short months! June will be here so soon and you'll be surrounded by Mickey-shaped treats and smiling faces before you know it! Shay, we recently got some great news that some of our favorite shows will be making their triumphant return to Disneyland Resort before your stay! That's right, on April 22, 2022, the Main Street Electrical Parade, World of Color and Disneyland Forever will be back for your viewing pleasure! How magical!

    Blue Bayou Restaurant is one of my favorites in all of Disneyland Resort! It is certainly a tough-to-get reservation, as many Guests book this popular dining spot as far in advance as possible. However, if you're looking for reservations during your stay in June, the reservation window has not opened up just yet, which may be why you're not finding any availability. You can make dining reservations up to 60 days in advance. I'd suggest marking your calendar for that date and checking for reservations early in the morning. Your wish may just come true!

    Shay, if you are still unable to get a reservation or if you're looking for a dining date sooner, I do have a couple of other suggestions. First, keep checking back on reservations through the Disneyland Mobile App as your stay approaches. As Guests' plans change and they cancel reservations, those time slots become available for others to book. You may just get lucky and find what you're been searching for!

    Though my next option does not allow you to plan ahead, you still may be able to grab a table the day of your visit. If you arrive at Blue Bayou Restaurant just as they are open, the Cast Member located at the podium may be able to grant your wish. Check with this Cast Member to see if they're able to accommodate your party as a walk-up. If they can make the magic happen, they will!

    Shay, I hope this helps you find that elusive reservation that you've been looking for! I will keep my fingers crossed that you get to eat at the Blue Bayou Restaurant during your trip and watch your fellow Guests set sail on a pirate adventure right in front of your eyes!
