    Hi, my son and I will be in Disneyland from Jan 5-10. I’ve been trying to book the Blue Bayou since we’re about 60 days out now, but it’s not showing any availability from Jan 6 onwards. Is the restaurant going to be closed for a little while?

    Happiest Greetings on Earth, Tina! I'm so honored you chose planDisney to help get you some helpful information as you continue planning your upcoming visit to Disneyland Resort. 

    I'm so glad to hear you are planning ahead for your advanced dining reservation window. This is especially key for some of the more popular table service locations, including Blue Bayou Restaurant. Unfortunately, I'm seeing what you are likely seeing on the dining availability calendar: reservations appear to be unavailable beginning January 7, 2024, for a few days, with availability opening again on January 13. I haven't yet seen an official announcement about a refurbishment for Blue Bayou Restaurant, but you can typically see which attractions or dining locations are closed for refurbishments on the Hours and Events Calendar, either on the official Disneyland Resort website or mobile app. These schedules are typically published about 4-6 weeks in advance, so I would expect to see more information about early January closures in the next week or two. All to say, please feel welcome to check back regularly, as these schedules are all subject to change.

    Tina, I'm sorry if this wasn't the news you were hoping for. I know the disappointment of learning that the restaurant I've really had my eye on won't be available during my trip! But, if you're looking for cajun-inspired flavors and a beautiful patio dining opportunity in New Orlean's Square, you simply must visit Tiana's Palace - the newest restaurant to open in Disneyland Park earlier this Fall! And of course, this restaurant was Tiana's dream, so you know it has to be good! This dining location is quick service, so you won't need a reservation to enjoy the menu, or you can choose to mobile order your food and beverage items using the official Disneyland mobile app

    I hope this is helpful for now, Tina. If we can lend any other dining recommendations or suggestions for how to make the most of your upcoming visit, please join us again here at planDisney, and don't hesitate to send another question our way! We'd love to see you stop by again!
