    Why am I able to make a reservation for a Disney Springs restaurant through open table, but the same time and party size shows no availability in the Disney app?

    Hi there, Adam! 

    If there's one place that my family loves to visit to unwind and take it easy, it's Disney Springs. From bowling at Splitsville to catching a movie and a meal at the AMC DINE-IN Disney Springs 24 Theatre, there's no shortage of fun there. 

    I love that you've discovered us locals' go-to third party site to grab hard-to-get dining reservations: OpenTable. I've used it for booking the brand-new Summer House on the Lake and even tried-and-true restaurants like the BOATHOUSE. Although you can't link the outside company's reservations to your My Disney Experience plans, you absolutely can take advantage of these legitimate dining reservation openings. While there is no easily found answer for why there are reservations available there and not via Walt Disney World Resort's website or the My Disney Experience App, I can assume the reservations allotted to the Disney options are more popular because they are more well-known. 

    AN EXTRA GEM: If you'd rather book through the My Disney Experience App, availability sometimes pops up at the last minute because other Guests cancel when their plans change around the time of their reservation. So, be on the lookout for new openings--it happens!

    Please revisit us here at planDisney if you have any other questions, Adam. We'd love to share some of our tricks and tips with you. 

    Magic always,
