    Hi, I am struggling to make a reservation for a meal on Thursday, November 25.

    Hi Matt, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for visiting us with your question about Advanced Dining Reservations.  You have chosen a great time to visit Walt Disney World Resort, visiting late November is a magical time to kick off the holiday season, and with the 50th Anniversary Celebrations underway, I am sure you are going to make lots of wonderful memories! 

    I am so sorry to hear that you are having a difficult time making your Advanced Dining Reservation for Thursday November 25.  Advanced Dining Reservations are available to book 60 days prior to your visit and they do tend to fill up quickly, especially on and around the holidays.  Since your visit isn't for a while, don't give up, there is still plenty of time for you to secure a coveted Dining Reservation.  I like to check every morning when I wake up, as close to 6:00 am as possible, and before heading to bed to see if any other reservations have become available.  Guests change plans and it isn't unheard of to find a reservation as your visit gets closer.  Also try to be flexible with your dining times, you may have a better chance looking at off peak times. 

    If you still haven't secured your reservation upon your arrival to Walt Disney World Resort, when you enter the Theme Park head straight to your preferred Dining Location and ask if there are any Same-Day Walk-Up reservations available.  Most restaurants do have a limited number available each day, depending on capacity.  

    I hope you are able to book your Advanced Dining Reservations before you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort, Matt.  If you have any other questions, please come back and visit planDisney again, we are always happy to help.
