    I have been trying to book story book dining at artist point, I’m staying onsite so had access 10 days prior to general release, and every day showed an error, is there a problem with the restraunt at the moment?

    Hey, Alice, and welcome to Wonderland, er, I mean planDisney. I am so glad you asked this question but are you ready to go down the rabbit hole? The answer to the question is "curiouser and curiouser."

    Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White is still accepting reservations over the next 60 days. The challenge is that there are limited reservations and dining with Snow White is a highly desired character dining experience. To verify I tried to make advance dining reservations for two, four, and six people every day for the next 60 days. I had no success. I have chased a dining experience many times and it is a matter of patience and persistence. In these situations, I follow this simple plan.

    1. Check every day at 5:45 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time for availability.
    2. Check the day before. 
    3. Check two to three hours before because cancellations are allowed until two hours before the reservation.
    4. Use a third-party dining reservation finder to watch and alert when a reservation opens up. I have found Touring Plans to be reliable but there are several out there.
    5. Lastly, arrive at the dining location to see if there are any last-minute cancellations or no-shows. 

    While these options are not "practically perfect in every way," they have allowed me to score reservations many times over the years but again, it is patience and persistence.

    planDisney Pro Tip: When you get the reservation for Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White do not rush the meal. It is meant to be savored. There are plenty of moments to meet Snow White, Grumpy, and of course, Dopey. But beware, the Evil Queen will show up with her menacing glare. I loved every minute of it and the food is outstanding.

    Alice, please know I am here to help with more answers to your Disney vacation questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
