    We were trying to get a reservation in the Magic Kingdom on either Dec 5th or Dec 6th 2012 and there is no availability for lunch or dinner. Is something going on those days that would make all the restaurants fill up already?

    It's not terribly uncommon for park restaurants to fill all available reservations three months out, Kathleen.  But in this case, the Magic Kingdom is hosting a highly-anticipated event on December 6th.  That is the day that the new Fantasyland will celebrate a grand opening.  You can read all about it in THIS Disney Parks Blog post.

    As for a solution to your dining dilemma, I would suggest checking availability for restaurants in close proximity to Magic Kingdom.  The Wave at Disney's Contemporary Resort, Kona Cafe at Disney's Polynesian Resort or Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney's Wilderness Lodge are all great choices.  Good luck!
