    I am trying to book reservations in a couple of restaurants, they don’t currently have reservations at all for the days I am visiting, is there a way to get on a waitlist in the event the restaurant has cancellations?

    Hi Amy! Welcome to planDisney!

    Have you been counting down the days until you make your way to the Walt Disney World Resort? My family always has a countdown going until we visit our happy place again and I know just how exciting the last few days before our trips are. You will be exploring the theme parks before you know it!

    There are so many delicious dining spots at the Most Magical Place on Earth, and with reservations opening 60 days in advance, they can fill up quickly! While there isn't a waitlist you can join now, I do have a few suggestions for you! First, keep checking for reservations to open up. Plans change all the time for other Guests and you never know when something will open up for your party. I have been able to get some pretty great reservations up to the day before our visit!

    If you haven't been able to snag dining reservations before your visit, use the My Disney Experience mobile app to join the walk-up list for many of the dining locations found in the theme parks. A group of friends and I managed to get a table at Liberty Tree Tavern in Magic Kingdom Park earlier this year, thanks to this feature. It helps to be flexible with your dining times since the wait may be a bit. If you don't find any openings on the walk-up list, stop by the restaurant and ask a Cast Member if there is any availability. My husband and I found this worked for us last month when the walk-up list said it was full, but the Cast Member was able to get us seated with less than a 15-minute wait! It was amazing!

    I hope this helps, Amy! Please let us know if you have any other questions. Happy dining!
