    I am trying to book restaurants for our first trip in Sept. But everything is booked! Obviously I am late to the table! What can I do? Do they take walk ups? My daughter will be so disappointed if we can't get in to Cinderella's Royal Table. Help!


    Thanks for coming to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Unfortunately, Disney vacation veterans know that restaurant reservations open up 180 days in advance and Cinderella's Royal Table typically books up for its breakfast within hours of that window. I've heard of folks having several phones dialing in at the same time to get those coveted reservations! But don't lose heart. I've found myself disappointed to miss out on reservations for family favorites like 'Ohana, Le Cellier, and Chef Mickey's. My strategy: I keep a tab open on my laptop to Disney Dining Reservations to check it when I think about it, especially at the 60-, 45- and 5-day out windows when folks have to make final cancellations to their vacations or lose deposits. 

    I have found that the new Disney dining reservations system that requires a credit card to reserve a table has greatly reduced the number of folks who hold multiple reservations or simply don't cancel a reservation. Guests have up to 48 hours in advance to cancel CRT, so keep checking even up until your departure.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
