    I've tried for 4 days straight at 5:55am to 6:10am to make a reservation at the Blu Bayou for 4 people and it shows zero availability.every time. Am I just unlucky or is something else up?

    Yo ho, Ryan! 

    Welcome to planDisney! The Blue Bayou Restaurant is such a treasure trove. Picture the tranquil elegance, twinkling lights reminiscent of fireflies, a soothing water scent, Pirates of the Caribbean barges drifting by, and the delicious flavors of the Big Easy dancing on your plate.

    So here's the word, matey: I can confirm that this location is closed for refurbishment during the week of January 7th. However,  I navigated the online dining reservation system, and as of my latest update, there is no availability all day on January 27 for a table of 4. 

    But don't walk the plank just yet, Ryan!  Keep your weather eye on the dining website as your voyage approaches. Guests' plans change all the time and sometimes this location opens up availability closer to the date than the other dining options at the resort. And here's a savvy trick from me to you – try the walk-up list. If the restaurant is still fully booked online, sail on over in person as soon as they open to check if they have any tables available for the day.

    I hope this eases your mind about making reservations for you and your crew, Ryan. Feel free to send me another question, and I'll hoist the anchor for a swift response. I'd love to share more of my favorite tips to help make your Disney dreams come true!

    See ya real soon,
