    Hi, Usually plan well in advance, but decided to book long weekend in May at Disney. Cinderella's Castle is filled for all meals the four days we will be there. Do you know if they get a fair amount of cancellations, or have a waiting list? Thanks.

    Hi Lynn, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question!

    My visits to Walt Disney World Resort are typically a mix of well-planned and last-minute trips. Plus, even for the most meticulously planned trips, sometimes we change our minds about where to dine or which attractions the day prior to or even the day of our original plans. 

    While there is no waiting list for Disney dining reservations, I’ve often found that, because of the 24-hour cancellation policy that applies to most restaurants, there are often tables at some of the most popular locations, including Cinderella’s Royal Table, available the day before you wish to dine there. I’d highly recommend checking for availability frequently, especially in the days leading up to your visit. Although it may be tough to find availability during a long weekend, checking frequently for cancellations (which can pop up at any time) would be your best bet. 

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. We’ve got lots of last-minute tips and tricks to share!

    Have a Magical Day,
