    We've not been able to pre-make reservations at our favorite restaurants at Disney Park other than at the River Belle. Will we be able to make them successfully the week we arrive or the same day ?

    Hey there, Elvia! Welcome to planDisney. Thanks for bringing us this great question. I know from first-hand experience it can be difficult securing reservations in advance for certain restaurants even when I try 60 days ahead of time!

    Once you are within 24-48 hours of your visit, I would try looking online again, as Guests sometimes cancel plans at the last minute. Also, it’s worth asking to join the walk-up list at restaurants, even at popular venues like Blue Bayou Restaurant. There have been times we got seated within 30-60 minutes of arrival.

    I’m not sure if you’ve tried Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability, but I have gotten lucky with this feature at Oga’s Cantina, Blue Bayou Restaurant and Carnation Café! Once you are close to the restaurant, search for it in the Disneyland mobile app and you should see the option to join the Mobile Dine Walk-up list if it is active. There are a total of five restaurants at Disneyland Park that offer this feature – the three I mentioned above, plus River Belle Terrace (where you already have a reservation) and Café Orleans.

    Wishing you a pinch of pixie dust, luck and magic to experience a few dining venues of your choice during your visit!
