    Thanks Moms for all of your wisdom. My husband and I are planning a trip in mid-September. I am really looking forward to having lunch at Be Our Guest, but was unable to get an ADR. Are stand-by permitted? How likely is it that we'll be able to get in?

    Hi Jennifer! I'm so glad you've found the panel helpful! Thanks for letting us know. September is the perfect time to visit Disney World. The weather is lovely and the parks tend to be less crowded, as the kids are back in school. Firstly, I would keep trying online to book a reservation. You never know when there will be a cancellation.

    When you arrive at the Magic Kingdom, I recommend heading straight to Be Our Guest. Check with a cast member located in front, and they will let you know of any availability. When we were there in November, there was availbiility for later in the day, after 2 pm. Your hotel Guest Services can also try to check if there are any openings as well.

    Best of luck Jennifer! Write us back with any other questions as you plan your magical vacation!
