    I have been trying to book a reservation at Blue Bayou for dinner on Nov. 4, but for a few months now every single day has been booked. I don't understand. I tried calling for a reservation, but was informed I can't get help with this.

    Welcome to planDisney, Courtney!

    Oh, bother! I'm so sorry that you've been unable to secure a dining reservation for Blue Bayou Restaurant. This is an extremely popular place to eat for both Guests and pirates alike. Reservations can be made up to 60 days in advance of your visit. However, such is the popularity, tables can be booked up in seconds. 

    All if not necessarily lost, Courtney. Life happens and people can sometimes cancel their reservations for a variety of reasons. Therefore, if you keep checking you might find a table suddenly becomes available. I would especially keep checking the day before your visit. I've gotten late dining reservations many times on my Disney adventures.

    Another idea is to arrive at Disneyland Park as soon as it opens. Instead of making a "dash for Splash" (i.e. Splash Mountain) or a "race for Space" (i.e. Space Mountain), venture over to Blue Bayou and join the walk-up list by scanning the QR code located near the restaurant entrance. This is a great way to try and get a table if you don't have reservations. The only downside is that you'll just have to be flexible when it comes to the time you'd like to eat. This doesn't guarantee you a reservation, but I know many people who've been able to secure a table this way.

    I hope that's helpful, Courtney! Thanks for choosing to be our Guest.
