    Hi, I am trying to book character dining for my trip, but am finding everywhere is already fully booked. I have left it late and now realise why they give you 180 days to do this. Is there anything that I can do! First time at WDW and am devastated.

    Hi Emma!

    Thank you for visiting the Moms Panel!

    I can understand how disappointed you feel with not being able to book your character dining.   Have you tried every restaurant?  Sometimes getting a lunchtime reservation may be easier than a later dinner reservation.

    Here is a list of all the character dining.

    The best advice for securing a reservation is to keep trying.  Cancellations do occur, even once you have arrived at Walt Disney World.  You can check for available times either online or by calling (from the UK) 001-407 939 3463.

    If you are still unable to find a time that suits you, perhaps you could try dining at one of the Resorts, or at a restaurant that doesn't feature characters, but still is a unique and fun experience.  If you send me a direct question with more details about the type of dining your family might enjoy, I will give you some different restaurant suggestions.  In the meantime, keep trying to find an available slot for your character dining.  I'll keep my fingers crossed that something becomes available for you.
