    we could never get any reservation for the character Dining since we always plan the trip only a few weeks prior to going. is the only way to get reservation availability is to book early? no other trick?

    Hi Hsiao! I'm so sorry to hear you have not been able to book meals at Disney Character Dining locations. It is not uncommon for guests visiting the Walt Disney World Resort to book Advanced Dining Reservations (ADR) 180 prior to their visit. Disney Dining Character experiences are highly coveted and therefore reservations do fill up quickly. The only other "trick" to securing one is to check daily for availability. I suggest calling (407) WDW-DINE or attempt to reserve online. I know of a few guests who were able to book last minute ADR at Cinderella's Royal Table using that strategy. Persistence does pay off! Cancellations do happen from time to time. So again, check both over the phone and online. If all else fails, go to the restaurant once you arrive on property. You might be able to snag a table from someone who doesn't show up or cancels at the very last minute. Please let me know if I may be able to answer any other questions for you. Enjoy a most memorable visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
