    Hi, it's my wife's 50th birthday on October 28th. Want to book Highway in the Sky specifically that night, but most of the released dates up to end of September are showing as not available. Does it really book up that quickly for most nights?

    Hello Alasdair!

    I think the Highway in the Sky Dine Around sounds like the perfect way to spend the evening with your wife, and commemorate her big day. What a lucky lady she is to have you!

    The Highway in the Sky Dine Around is a progressive style dinner that begins with appetizers and beverages at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, then moves to enjoy more tropical flavors at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, followed by the main course at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. This perfect evening with dessert at a private viewing location for Magic Kingdom’s nighttime spectacular, “Happily Ever After.”

    This event is indeed very popular. At this time, dates for October are not yet open for booking. I recommend checking the booking site daily to give you the best possible chance of securing your reservation as soon as they open up.

    If you are unable to get the reservation you are hoping for, check back regularly since cancellations can happen. I have a few other ideas for you as well. For 40th birthday, my husband and I dined at Victoria & Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. This was on my personal Disney must-do list, and it did not disappoint! You may also consider The Chef’s Domain at Citrico’s. For something more exotic, check out the Wanyama Safari at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Resort which combines a safari with a delicious meal at Jiko -The Cooking Place. You can find these experiences and more in Disney's Enchanting Extras Collection.

    Sending pixie dust that you able to secure your preferred reservation, but most of all that your wife has a magical birthday!
