    I wasn't able to book any character dining experiences before all of the tables were booked up for our trip in February. For most of these restaurants, are you able to try to get a table the day of? Thanks! :)

    Hi Amanda!

    I am so happy you will be visiting soon! I am sorry to hear that you were not able to secure the reservations for the character dining experiences. Reservations open 180 days in advance and the more popular restaurants tend to fill up quick. There are a couple things you can do. You can keep calling or checking online to see if a reservation opens up. Since there is a cancellation policy where guests get charged a penalty if they do not cancel a reservation, many guests wait until the day before to cancel their reservations. I have been able to secure last minute reservations due to these last minute cancellations. The other option would be to wait until the day you want to dine and inquire if they will take you as a walk-in. It is best to try this as early in the day as possible as you may have a better chance!

    It has been a pleasure assisting you! Please let me know if I can answer any more questions for you!

    Thanks for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Have a great trip!
