    We have been trying to make a booking in Cape May at breakfast for 5 people and cannot get a date any day even the 60 days in advance. Can get any other number. Anyone else had this issue?

    Hey there, Clare!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with a delightful Walt Disney World Resort dining question. It sounds like you're counting down the days until your next holiday at The Most Magical Place on Earth - I bet you can hardly wait! Cape May Cafe is a dining experience I've always wanted to try, so it's on our "must-do" list during my family's upcoming stay at Disney's Beach Club Resort. I'd be happy to help your travel party secure a booking as well!

    Clare, Cape May Cafe features beachy pastels, a bountiful buffet, and Minnie's Beach Bash Breakfast - a daily morning celebration you won't want to miss! Since Disney Characters only appear during the breakfast hours, and because this is the only location where you can see them in their beachy apparel, this is, understandably, an incredibly popular dining experience at the Walt Disney World Resort. Clare, I went ahead and tried searching for dining reservation availability at Cape May Cafe and found the same as you: no breakfast times available, even at 60 days out. While I can understand your frustration, it likely indicates there are a limited number of tables at the restaurant meant to seat five Guests and these spots are filling up immediately. Remember, dining reservation availability typically opens up 60 days in advance at 6:00 a.m. Eastern Time, and sometimes it's easiest to find availability for popular dining experiences on dates past the 60-day booking window, later into a Guest's stay.

    I reached out to a friendly Cast Member about this finding, who indicated that Cape May Cafe does indeed seat larger parties, so it's best to continue checking daily for availability. Cancelations do happen, so a breakfast reservation could open up at any time, Clare. Alternatively, you could book two reservations - a table for two and a table for three - and request that the tables be combined or seated near one another when you arrive at the host stand. Please note that this isn't always possible, but it's worth a try so that your party can enjoy this beachy breakfast experience!

    Clare, I do hope this information helps you to secure the dining reservation you desire, and I wish your travel party a magical and memorable Walt Disney World Resort holiday. If you have any additional vacation planning questions, you're always welcome to revisit us here at planDisney! We're here to help you make the most of your time at The Most Magical Place on Earth.

    Warm wishes,
