    I am trying to book restaurant I feel that my My Experience App is not working effectively and therefore missing out on bookings would I be better contacting the Reservation Number? and would there be better availability this way?

    Howdy Amanda!

    Welcome to planDisney!  I love to chat about dining at the Walt Disney World Resort!  Thank you for sharing your question with us!

    As Mickey and his pals continue welcoming guests “Returning to a World of Magic,” things may look a bit different at this time!  Due to maintaining proper physical distancing, it may be more challenging to obtain certain advanced dining reservations at this time.  I recently spoke with a Cast Member and was reassured that the My Disney Experience mobile app is updated in real-time when availability pops up.  I have struggled to find reservations on my last two visits to “The Most Magical Place on Earth,” and I have a suggestion.  You can call and speak with a Cast Member in dining in hopes to score your advanced dining reservation or check different time slots on your My Disney Experience.  I successfully obtained my advanced dining reservations for my last couple of visits by clicking on other time options instead of breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  If you decide to speak with a Cast Member from the Walt Disney World Resort, I have placed a link in the text above. 
    Your vacation is “Just Around the Riverbend,” and with all the festivities for the 50th anniversary, I recommend checking “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” and the Disney Parks Blog websites.  These two websites keep guests informed of all the announcements for this once-in-a-lifetime 18-month event!

    As you continue to plan your vacation, if you have any more questions, please come back to planDisney!  We are always here to help you with all your planning questions, Amanda!

    See Ya Real Soon,
