    We're at WDW from Nov 11-22 and want to book a Character Meal at Cinderella's Royal Table. Every slot is full. We've seen the "Keep checking!" advice but, realistically, what are the odds of 2 spots opening up? Are they more likely to pop up clos

    Hi Robin!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!  November is such a great time to visit Walt Disney World Resort, you are going to have such a wonderful time!  The festive spirit is in the air, and the decorations are beautiful!  I am sorry you haven't had any luck with Advanced Dining Reservations at Cinderella's Royal Table.  There has been a few times where I have been able to secure a reservation closer to my arrival, but I was very persistent.  Your chances will be better if you are flexible with your dining times and check frequently.  If another guest cancels, you will need a little bit of luck (and pixie dust) that you are online at virtually the same time.  

    If that doesn't work, I would recommend booking Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in EPCOT.  This dining experience is very similar to the experience you will have at Cinderella's Royal Table, with its own magical touches.  My family loves the menu, including the delicious buffet available for appetizers!

    I truly hope you are able to secure your desired dining reservations Robin.  Please let me know if you have any other questions as your Walt Disney World Vacation approaches.  I would be happy to help make your "Disney Time" even more magical!
