    Taking our first family Disney trip this holiday season and we're excited but overwhelmed! We missed the booking for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for our daughter and son, unfortunately. How common are potential cancellations or added availability?

    Hello there, Kevin!

    Like Disney’s Jungle Book, you’ve found the perfect place to forget about your worries and your strife. Here at planDisney, we are Guests like you, and we love to share our top tips for getting the most magic out of each Walt Disney World Resort vacation. 

    Don’t stress about missing the booking for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Magic Kingdom Park. This is a very popular magical experience that tends to book up quickly, particularly around the Holidays. I recently missed booking one of my favorite dining reservations, so I can share a few tips about how I’m navigating that. 

    Advanced reservations for dining and the Enchanting Extras Collection experiences can be made up to 60 days in advance of your arrival starting at 6:00 a.m. Eastern. If you are a Disney Resort hotel Guest, you can make reservations for the entire length of your stay (up to 10-night stays) 60 days in advance of your arrival. If I miss my 6:00 a.m. window, I like to check the reservation availability every day at 6:00 a.m. or randomly throughout the day. You really never know when a reservation could become available. 

    There is no guarantee that a reservation will become available, but often times, you’ll find reservations open up closer to your arrival date. Guests tend to change their plans frequently right before they visit. In some rare cases, I’ve been able to grab a reservation on the day of my arrival. With a bit of faith, trust, pixie dust, and perseverance, there is a chance a reservation may become available. 

    Just in case a reservation doesn’t open up, I recommend coming up with another plan that is similar to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. For example, maybe you can find a reservation at a Disney Princess-themed character dining experience, like Cinderella’s Royal Table or Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. Let us know if you’d like any other recommendations. 

    May the magic be with you!
