    We are going to WDW November 22-27 with the basic dining plan. I'm looking to make ADR at Chef Mickey's &Trails end Buffet. My question is if we go to these places will we be able to get back into the parks? I've heard the parks reach capacity& clo

    Hi Ashley,


    You will love both Chef Mickey's Restaurant at the Contemporary Resort and the Trail's End Restaurant at  Ft. Wilderness Campground.   Usually the theme parks do not reach capacity every day around Thanksgiving time.  The more likely times are at New Year's Eve and Easter.  If they do reach capacity, you will not be allowed back in even if you were there in the morning.  You can certainly ask a Cast Member a few hours before your dining reservations to see if the park is near capacity and then make your decision to keep your Advanced Dining Reservations.  I do think you will be just fine during this time and will really enjoy the restaurants you have chosen.  I know the fried chicken at the Trail's End Restaurant is just amazing!  I know your vacation will be magical!
