    Seven of us will be at Disney World the week of Oct. 15. Our grandson turns 6 on Oct. 17. We are looking for a fun place for dinner to celebrate his birthday. Everything suggested to us is not available. Any suggestions?

    Hi Carla!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel and let me be the first to wish your grandson a very happy birthday. I took a look at the dining reservations currently available for October 17 for your group of seven. Keep in mind that availability is always subject to change, but I found a few fun options for your family.

    I found a reservation at Tusker House Restaurant, which is one of my boys' favorite restaurants. This is an awesome choice because it combines tasty dining options with the opportunity to meet Safari Donald Duck and his friends during your meal and the kids can even do a fun parade through the restaurant!

    If you are willing to be a little bit flexible with your dining time, I found a late lunch reservation at Hollywood & Vine, where you will be able to enjoy Minnie's Seasonal Dining where you can to meet Minnie, Mickey and their friends in their adorable seasonal outfits. My family really enjoys this lunch buffet because of the variety of items on the buffet.

    I have a few tips to help you search for your reservations:
    - Be sure to look for reservations over the entire meal, rather than a specific time. You will find options for the restaurant's available meals at the top of the time selection box and using this option will give you the complete list of reservations available.
    - If you can't find reservations, keep checking back. I have found that often reservations open up as your trip approaches as Guests are finalizing their plans.
    - Be sure to add your grandson's birthday to your reservation by calling (407) 939-1947.

    Come back and see us if you have more questions or if you need additional help finding a reservation! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
