    I’ve been trying for days to make reservations at the Blue Bayou in January. I check dining reservations right when they open, but it hasn’t been showing up. Is it closed or is there something I’m missing?

    Hello there Jennifer!  Welcome to planDisney, we're so glad you're here with your great dining question!  

    Blue Bayou Restaurant in Disneyland Park is one of the most popular restaurants at the Disneyland Resort.  I completely understand why it's so popular, you truly cannot beat the ambiance of the Pirates of the Caribbean boats floating by while you dine, and the Louisiana-inspired cuisine is absolutely delicious!  

    In my experience Jennifer, the dining reservations for Blue Bayou Restaurant do not always drop right at 6:00 AM PST like the other reservations do.  I'm not sure why, but I know when I've been patient and tried later that morning, they have appeared.  So I wouldn't give up hope if you do not see it available right away, I would keep trying, and you should keep trying all the way up to your trip!  Guest plans change all the time, so you may even have luck a day or two before your trip snagging that reservation.

    If you are still not successful in getting a reservation prior to your trip, there is another option!  On the day of your visit, you can check the Disneyland app to see if Blue Bayou Restaurant is offering Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability.  You can check on the app or by scanning a QR code near the restaurant entrance.  If they are offering the mobile walk-up list that day, you'll be able to add your party to the walk-up list, and then when your table is ready, you'll be notified to head back to the restaurant.  Availability can fluctuate throughout the day, so you can check at various times to see if any availability pops up.  

    I'm sending you all of the pixie dust that you're able to secure your dining reservations, Jennifer!  If we can help with anything else prior to your trip, please come back and ask!

    Have a magical day!
