    Hello- I have been trying to get France and Germany reservations for Epcot for the last month. We have 30 days till our arrival and there have been no reservations to either- and yes I was on early at the 60 point. Have they released their schedule yet?

    Hi Jennifer,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    I am glad to see you dropping by planDisney with a fabulous question and am sorry to hear that you are having difficulty with your trip plans. It sounds like you are trying to make advanced dining reservations. Given the time of year you are going, dining reservations are in high demand. I double-checked and also did not see any dining reservations open for dinner at EPCOT. Lunch looked equally booked. I have encountered this dilemma before and had to stay persistent with checking. Cancelations are possible. I have been lucky enough to find reservations after weeks of searching. Keep in mind that some folks will cancel the day before, so check up until then!

    Also, remember that there are a few restaurants in Disney's BoardWalk area that are within walking distance of EPCOT. When I checked, Cape May Cafe had dinner reservations available for your arrival day. Tratorria al Forno also had one available time for dinner. You could also try Ale & Compass Restaurant. I know you may be looking for Chefs de France or Biergarten Restaurant, but did want you to have some other options when you search. Also, consider making a reservation for the Candlelight Processional Dining Package with Biergarten Restaurant. Even though these reservations were booked soon after reservations opened, I have seen some availability pop up from time to time, so keep checking!

    Jennifer, I know how frustrating it can be to check for dining reservations right at 60 days prior to your visit and to not see some dining locations available. We have also used one of the dining reservation finder tools online. It sends an alert when a reservation comes available. Sending you lots of extra pixie dust for patience as you keep looking for those dining reservations!

    Magic and memories,
