    Hello, which restaurants are the hardest to get reservations for? I'm just not sure which ones I should try and book first to make sure I am able to get them, or if we've even chosen popular restaurants. Thanks

    Hello Stacey!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Making dining reservations is my favorite part of vacation planning! 

    While there is no official list of the hardest dining reservations to get, I am going to give you some tips based on my personal experience. First you need to determine where you and your family would like to dine, what type of food you like, and how open to trying new experiences you are. Sometimes the most popular locations may not be the most suitable for our families. Popularity also depends on the types of Guests: babies and toddlers, children, adults, teenagers, families, etc.

    Bearing that in mind, here is a short list of very popular locations: Cinderella’s Royal Table, Be Our Guest Restaurant, Victoria and Albert’s (I have been desperately trying to make a reservation for July), Le Cellier Steakhouse, Chef Mickey’s, California Grill, ‘Ohana, Akershus Royal Banquet Hall.

    If you really want to make sure that you land a spot at your favorite restaurant, here are some Moms Panel Tips:
    - You can start making reservations up to 180 days in advance. I highly recommend that you do so. This means you need to plan ahead to be able to do so when you hit the 180 days before arrival mark.
    - Be flexible for the dates and times of your reservations.
    - Make sure you have a Disney account, and download the My Disney Experience Mobile app for fast dining reservations. You can also call (407) WDW-DINE or (407)939-3463.

    I hope this helps you plan your dining adventures! Please come visit us again with more questions.

    Best magical wishes,
