    I've tried to make reservation at the Blue Bayou for Thursday, August 3rd its my 67th Birthday and my daughter Elizabeth 3rd Birthday (1st time at Disney. Every time I check there are no available time slots for dinner on Thursday, Aug 3rd?

    Hey there, hi there, Kevin! Welcome to planDisney. Thanks so much for stopping by!

    You are just days away from your upcoming visit and it sounds like it's a special one celebrating you and your daughter's birthday! Blue Bayou sounds like a wonderful place to celebrate. This is one of the most popular places to get reservations and they usually go very fast on the day reservations drop. Right now all you can do is just keep checking like you have been. Dining reservations are constantly changing as Guests book and cancel reservations. I would keep looking, especially the day before your visit because this is when many Guests decide to change their plans. If you arrive still without reservations, don't give up just yet. Check Blue Bayou's opening time and then head that way a little before opening. They usually have some availability for walk-up reservations. It may be lunch reservations, instead of dinner but hopefully, your schedule is flexible.

    Another option that you may want to look at that I think is a really fun experience would be Plaza Inn. There is a breakfast option, which is special because it's a character experience. At the time of writing this, I do see availability. They also usually have a lunchtime option of a Plaza Inn Dining Package where it's a set meal, but it also includes reserved viewing for the "Magic Happens" Parade. I did this dining package a few months ago and really enjoyed it. 

    Kevin, I hope this information helps you figure out your special day. Don't forget to stop by City Hall or pop into a shop to ask a Cast Member for complimentary birthday buttons for you and your daughter. Happy Birthday!
