    I want to surprise my future wife with a eating experience at the blue bayou. Would it help to make reservations as soon as we get to Disneyland on Saturday the 23rd?

    Hi there, Robert.

    Welcome to planDisney. We’ve been experiencing high volume of questions and apologize we couldn’t provide an answer before your visit. I hope you and your fiancée had a delightful time at the Happiest Place on Earth.

    Dining reservations at Disneyland Resort are booked up quickly, especially at popular establishments like the Blue Bayou Restaurant. I hope you two were able to enjoy a meal at the Blue Bayou Restaurant! To dine inside a classic attraction at Disneyland Resort is truly such a memorable experience. For your next trip, if you’re interested in securing advance dining reservations, I recommend checking regularly on Disneyland mobile app or Disneyland.com for openings. Sometimes, Guests may cancel their bookings or more tables may open up; you might get lucky and be able to score a reservation in advance. 

    Otherwise, you can try to join the walk-up list the next time you’re at Disneyland Park. On a recent trip with my fellow Panelist friends, we didn’t have a dining reservation for Blue Bayou Restaurant; we inquired about the walk-up list and were able to be seated after just a brief wait. My other suggestion would be to check during “off-peak” times when the restaurant may be less busy.

    If you have more questions for us, please don’t hesitate to visit us again!

    Have a magical day,

Meet the Panelist: Kiki, California

Greetings from Northern California! I have been fascinated by the magic of Disney since I was a little girl; now that I am a mother of two, I love watching my children experience Disney Parks through their own eyes. I am also surrounded by fellow Disney-loving nurse friends whom I enjoy quick adults-only Disneyland Resort escapes with. Whether you are planning your once-in-a-lifetime family trip or a short adults-only getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth, I am here to help!
