    I tried for two months to get reservations at Be Our Guest with no luck. We are only 5 days away from our vacation. Since I was not able to secure dining - can we still enter and look around the castle? Same question for Cinderella's Castle.

    Hi Cynthia!

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just around the corner and I'm so happy to help you with your question! I'm so sorry you weren't able to grab a reservation for Be Our Guest Restaurant, but don't give up hope! In my experience, many Guests cancel reservations one or two days in advance. I have almost always been able to grab a last minute reservation to enjoy breakfast in The Beast's Castle just by looking for reservation openings during my trip. Here are a few of my favorite tips for finding last minute reservations:
    1. Download the My Disney Experience Mobile App and check for new reservations throughout your trip. I have had the best results looking for reservation availability 24-48 hours in advance as Guests are finalizing their reservations for the next day and the My Disney Experience Mobile App is the best way to make new reservations while you are enjoying your vacation.
    2. Be flexible about your dining times. When you search for dining times, be sure to search for the entire meal, rather than a specific time. This will show you restaurant availability for all of Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner, rather than just a short window around the time you are searching for.
    3. Be persistent. If you don't find something right away, keep looking. It just takes a minute to search for them and you never know when a reservation will pop up!
    Unfortunately, both Be Our Guest Restaurant and Cinderella's Royal Table are reserved for Guests with dining reservations. However, you could still grab a reservation as things open up. And if you still don't find something, be sure to check with restaurant Cast Members to see if they have any availability to accommodate walk-up reservations!

    Please let us know if you have additional questions as you countdown the final sleeps until your trip. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
