    We have reservations for 1st week of November. myself, my daughter, and grandson. We have the dining plan, but having trouble getting full service dinner reservations for Sunday 11/01, we do have tickets for the Halloween party. ideas?

    Hi Jackie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Your trip is less than a week away! I love that you are planning ahead and making dining reservations before you arrive. With your trip being so close, I could see how it may be difficult to secure a sit down meal for dinner, especially if you are hoping to dine at a specific location or Theme Park.

    I do have some suggestions for you and I hope that you can find an option that you will love! First do not give up on checking for that special dining location! As the day that you want your reservation inches closer, you may find that a lot of people will let their dining reservation go so that they don’t get charged a fee for not showing up! I am always checking for a dining reservation sometimes even on the day I am hoping for! I have actually gotten really lucky in the past! Second, maybe consider dining somewhere special for breakfast or lunch for your sit down meal. If you don’t plan on going into the Theme Park during the day on the day of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, look into some of the Resort hotel restaurants! One of our favorites is Whispering Canyon Café. The food has been delicious and we LOVE the atmosphere and Cast Members! They really make dining here fun. You may be really pleased with the location and cuisine that you will find in some of these Resort hotel restaurants! If you do decide to have a sit down breakfast or lunch, you can then use a quick service credit for dinner during the Halloween Party! We love dining at Columbia Harbour House at Magic Kingdom Park for a quick meal.

    I hope that I have helped to answer your question! Please come back and visit us soon. I hope that you are able to find the perfect dining reservation!
