    Hi, I was on the website last week and was able to make other dining reservations but was told the Blue Bayou was already booked for the day I selected, which was July 24th. How can I make one for that day? I know it's extremely hard to book there!

    Hiya Jacqueline,

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for submitting your question to us! 

    I am happy to help answer your question about dining reservations! I have also had a difficult time (or two) booking dining reservations for popular restaurants, but I have learned a few things along the way. I’d love to share some insights for securing dining reservations at the Disneyland Resort

    Don’t forget to continuously check for Guest cancellations! In the past, I’ve had luck checking the day before for last-minute reservations to popular locations such as Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar! I like to periodically check throughout the day, as Guests will cancel up to 24 hours before their dining reservation. Once the reservation is available, be sure to grab it quickly because several other Guests are also hoping for cancellation to come through and will grab it as soon as possible! 

    Tip from Tiffany: If you cannot secure a dining reservation before your visit, you may be able to join the Mobile Dine Walk-Up List! Blue Bayou Restaurant has a walk-up list that Guests can join (either at the restaurant or through the Disneyland app) to fill in any remaining tables at different times throughout the day! The walk-up list is first come, first serve, so be sure to go directly towards the restaurant at rope drop on your visit to make it onto the list! There is no guarantee as the walk-up list is subject to availability, but with "a little faith and trust", I'm sure you'll be able to enjoy the magical ambiance of Blue Bayou Restaurant during your visit! 

    If you have other questions about the Disneyland Resort, remember - you’ve got a friend in me!
