    Hi, I am trying to make reservations at Goofy's Kitchen for 9/22/23 for a group of 11. I have been checking multiple times a day since the 60 day mark on 7/24 but nothing is open. Can you help?

    Hi there Linda!

    Welcome to planDisney! When I saw your question about Goofy's Kitchen, I just knew I had to help you out. Character dining is one of my favorite things to do at the resort. It's like stepping into a fairytale with your favorite Disney pals! The best part is that the characters come to you while you get to enjoy a buffet of sweet and savory items. It's the perfect opportunity to snap memorable photos and make magical memories.

    But alas, it appears that you weren't able to secure a reservation once your 60-day window opened this week. That happens to the best of us! Weekend reservations for popular locations like Goofy’s Kitchen tend to fill up quickly, leaving many hopeful guests feeling disappointed. But Hakuna Matata, Linda! There’s still hope! Plans change all the time, and people cancel their reservations, or extra spots can open up all the way up until 2 hours before a guest is scheduled to visit.

    Believe me, I've been in this situation before, and it can be a bit disheartening. But remember, just like Hercules, you can go the distance! Keep checking for availability in the upcoming weeks, and you might just score a spot. 

    I’ll share a little secret with you, Linda: My pal and fellow panelist Amanda D is an absolute expert for nabbing the best dining reservations. I always find it very helpful to read her winning strategies.

    Linda, I hope this information helps you have a blast this month, no matter what. Goofy and all his pals are cheering for you! Keep those questions coming! I’d love to share my favorite tips or suggestions for visiting the Happiest Place On Earth with you and your crew. Just consider me your personal pixie dust sprinkler and feel free to message me directly for a quicker response next time. 

    See ya real soon!
