    How do you get reservations at Ohanas before 9:30 p.m.? I've check for 6 days straight and they have NO availability.

    You don't mention when you are traveling, or how far in advance you are trying to make reservations, which definitely impacts availability.

    Disney allows you to make dining reservations 180 days in advance. For super planners, that means that they are on the phone exactly 6 months before their trip, making every single reservation for the week! While the planners among us love this ability, it does make it difficult for others who don't like to map out the details so far in advance.

    Unfortunately, all I can suggest is that you call as far in advance as possible, and be persistent. You may find a cancellation that will allow you to dine a little earlier. In the meantime, though, if your heart is set on dinner at 'Ohana, I definitely suggest you book whatever time you can. You may get lucky enough to find something earlier, but at least that way you will have a reservation. And since it's one of my favorite restaurants, I can tell you that it's definitely worth a mid-afternoon snack to enjoy a late dinner there. Even my young daughters would agree that it's worth the wait!

    Good luck!
