    I tried booking a character breakfast but nothing is available. I looked from Jan 29th through Feb 2nd. Please let me know if you can help with this reservation.

    Welcome back to planDisney, Manizha, and thank you for following up about your upcoming celebratory trip. I remember that you noted your son is a huge fan of Mickey and that you are looking for ways to engage with everybody's favorite Mouse during your son's birthday trip.

    Character meals are definitely popular and it can be challenging to obtain reservations, especially for trips that are right around the corner. With that said, I know from experience that guests frequently change their plans and cancel reservations. My advice to you would be to keep checking for availability at both Chef Mickey's and Topolino's Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera. As you're checking for reservations, be as flexible as you can with regard to timing. Instead of searching for a reservation at a specific time, select "breakfast" and proceed with your search. You may find an opening. I also recommend downloading the My Disney Experience app so that you can continue to check for reservation openings once you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort. Last minute cancellations do occur and maybe you'll find one.

    I'm sending an extra sprinkle of pixie dust your way, Manizha, in hopes that you can secure a dining reservation. If not, though, don't forget to keep an eye out for Mickey in the Mickey and Friends Cavalcade along the parade route in Magic Kingdom. Happy birthday to your little one!

I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists.
