    Our upcoming stay includes Thanksgiving day and we'd like to book a reservation for a table service meal on that evening. Reservation options appear limited at the moment. Will other reservations become available closer to the Thanksgiving holiday?

    Dear Rob,

    We here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel are so glad that you decided to stop by to visit us with your great question about planning ahead for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Thanksgiving Day is a very popular day to dine at the Walt Disney World Resort, so I recommend that you consider making your Advanced Dining Reservations as soon as possible because those dates are indeed open for booking! I recommend making an Advanced Dining Reservation for whatever you can get at the moment, and then continuing to look as the dates get closer to see if anyone releases or changes their Advanced Dining Reservations in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. Often, people do book at the 180-day Advanced Dining Reservation mark and then change or cancel at the last minute. It would be great to take what is available now so that you don't end up without a plan on that special day.

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
