    I’ve been trying to make a reservation at Blue Bayou for almost 6 months & there aren’t ever any openings. Doesn’t matter which day of the week or time. What’s going on???

    Hello, Paulina! 

    Thank you for coming to planDisney. We're always thrilled to help fellow Disney fans! 

    I'm also chasing a Blue Bayou Restaurant reservation myself for a February trip. I haven't found my table yet, but I haven't given up! 

    I've been using a little trick to maximize my chances, and I hope it helps you too. First, make sure to download the Disneyland Mobile App, as it will make it easier for you to check for tables while waiting for a friend or browsing on your phone. Then, after selecting your party and dates under "Check Dining Availability," don't click on the meal blocks that say "Breakfast," "Lunch," and "Dinner." Select specific dining times such as 1:30 PM, or 6:30 PM, as this will increase your chances of finding a table. 

    I've used this trick to find tables at coveted places like Napa Rose, Carthay Circle, and even Blue Bayou Restaurant, so I hope it comes through to you, too! 

    But if you can't find a table at Disneyland Park for a Table Service meal, don't worry! There are plenty of delicious Quick Service options, such as the Felucian Kefta & Hummus Garden Spread at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo or the skewers at Bengal Barbecue

    I hope these tips help you have a tasty visit to the Disneyland Resort soon, Paulina. And if more questions pop up, don't hesitate to come back. We love to help! 

    May the magic be with you,
