    Why does the Disney Dining Reservation system constantly show no availability for a given restaurant/date for parties of 2 when there is plenty of availability for parties of 3 or 4 on the same date?

    Hi Roy, welcome to planDisney. 

    I'm sorry that you're experiencing some difficulty making dining reservations. When your heart set on a dining experience, it can feel frustrating. I have encountered something similar when booking venues such as Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant at Disney's Hollywood Studios, which has unique and fixed seating arrangements with drive-in style tables. This may be one of the reasons why you can see availability but not for your party size.

    People's plans change frequently at Walt Disney World, so I suggest checking back on availability as the exact booking you want may become free. Please know that you may modify or cancel any existing booking up to 2 hours ahead of the reservation time (within 2 hours, there is a $10 per-person fee). For example, you may change the number of Guests in your dining party in your My Disney Experience app by selecting the Modify icon in your dining reservation.

    Roy, I hope you manage to book all the dining experiences you wish. It forms a magical part of our Walt Disney World adventures. I'm sure you'll feel equally satiated and full of Disney wonder.
