    Our trip is scheduled in November but I cannot find any character dining reservations seems that everything is booked up. What are chances of finding a reservation last minute like the 24 hours before? What s best character dining for toddler boys?

    Hi Anna!

    I live pretty close to Walt Disney World and often visit on short notice.  You'd be surprised at how many times I've snagged a last minutes dining reservation at a popular restaurant.  The key is to keep trying and a little pixie dust always helps.  Check for reservations every day, multiple times a day.  You never know when someone might cancel.  I've been very lucky the day before I've wanted to dine somewhere.  Since the cancellation policy is one day prior, you'll find reservations pop up the day before as well.  

    My kids love dining at Chef Mickey's.  It's our favorite restaurant to find the classic characters like Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Goofy and Donald.  We also enjoy lunch at Hollywood & Vine with Disney Junior characters.  You'll see Jake, Handy Manny, Doc McStuffins and Sofia the First.  They also do some fun dance parties in the middle of your meal.  

    Have a magical day!
