    Trip with 2 teen daughters scheduled for mid-October. We wanted to have a special late dinner on our last night at California Grill, but the only reservation time available was 5:30. Is it worthwhile to continue checking back to see if something opens up?


    Yes, it is absolutely worth checking in, many times if you can do it. Here are a few reasons why;

    1. It is well worth the time spent to eat at what is arguably the best restaurant in all of Orlando.
    2. There are many people who make multiple reservations for the same meal at different restaurants (shame on them!), and when they finally show the courtesy to cancel on some of them, you could be the person who benefits!
    3. Especially consider making calls right up to that day. They may open up a few more slots based on what they may think of as excess capacity that they might have.

    Good luck!

    Have a magical vacation!
