    Hi -- trying to arrange a visit to Disneyland on May 5 for my twin girls' 9th birthday. I'd like to do a meal with a cake at Blue Bayou, but I'm having trouble accessing reservations. Is there nothing available? Thanks!

    Ahoy there, Jason, and welcome aboard planDisney! 

    I imagine you arrrrr so excited to celebrate your young sailors’ big day at the Happiest Place on Earth. If you haven't done so already, be sure every member of your crew has valid tickets and theme park reservations for the day of your visit.

    During the initial reopening period, some attractions and dining experiences will be unavailable. Unfortunately, Blue Bayou Restaurant will not open with the rest of Disneyland Park, which is why you were unable to secure reservations here for the celebration. Check out a list of locations that will be available during your trip by clicking here. I encourage you to watch the Dining: Know Before You Go page for updates as the reopening protocols evolve and more experiences return. 

    In the meantime, if you're looking for table service dining in Disneyland Park, both Cafe Orleans and River Belle Terrace are currently accepting reservations and will be serving Guests upon reopening. You might even be able to add a Mickey Mouse celebration cake to your reservation. If you haven’t had one before they are delicious. Just thinking about the mousse filling makes my tummy rumbly!

    To minimize contact, make sure you have the latest version of the Disneyland Mobile App handy to check-in virtually for all dining experiences, and if you prefer to be more spontaneous during your visit, consider using Mobile Dine Walk-Up for same-day reservations.

    I hope this is helpful, Jason. I'll keep my fingers and hooks crossed that Blue Bayou Restaurant sails back into operation soon. Best wishes for smooth waters as you return to a land of magic, and a very merry birthday to your girls!
