    We are trying to make dining reservations for Dec 20-29 but for every restaurant and every date it says that none are available. What do we do

    Hello Uzoamaka, and welcome to planDisney!  It's so great to see you here today.

    My family and I just love to dine our way around the magic of Walt Disney World Resort and feel truly blessed to have been able to do so during a similar time frame as your vacation dates of December 20th-29th. 

    As you can imagine Uzoamaka, this historically busy Holiday time of yEAR at the most magical place on earth is filled with Guests from all over the globe who have made their advanced Christmas dining plans up to 60-days ahead of their arrival. 

    The ho-ho-Holiday season may indeed be the reason why all the restaurants you've been trying to secure Advanced Dining Reservations at, appEAR to be fully booked at this moment in time.

    Of course, I totally understand how frustrating this can be!  And, I do have some suggestions for you to try.  Guests really do change their plans all the time, so I would highly encourage you to keep trying online via My Disney Experience to make your desired Advanced Dining Reservations.  After all, you never just know when a little Disney magic might happen, and a spot will open up just for YOU!

    Another suggestion would be to perhaps try Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability via the My Disney Experience Mobile App.  This wonderful gizmo is so clever as it finds any availability for Guests, and once they've been added to the wait-list, will conveniently send an alert when a table is ready.

    Additionally, it's always possible to dine at Quick-Service or Counter-Service dining locations where Guests can often experience little, or no wait times at all to both place an order, or to seat a party.  Some of my favourite foods are found at Quick-Service restaurants such as the Columbia Harbour House where I adore the Lobster Rolls!  In fact, no visit to the Magic Kingdom Park is ever quite complete without stopping by this olde-worlde eatery on the edge of Liberty Square.

    Uzoamaka, I truly hope that I've been able to provide a little pixie-dusted insight for you today.  And now, all that remains is for me to wish you a practically perfect in every way upcoming Holiday vacation to the most magical place on earth.

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
