10 DO’s and DON’Ts for Making Advanced Dining Reservations at Disney World

4 - DON’T give up if you didn’t get all of your preferred reservations.

Definitely don’t give up!  You are still very likely to get any of the meals that you couldn’t find, but it just takes patience.  When I was looking for Be Our Guest for a set meal time and date, I would just try every day when I thought about it.  It only took a couple minutes, and eventually I got lucky and got what I was looking for.  You can try this method even up to the same day that you are looking for.  Disney World charges a $10 fee per member of the party if you don’t cancel reservations that go unused at least 24 hours in advance.  This deters individuals from making a bunch of reservations that they don’t intend to keep, so reservations keep opening up as plans change for different guests.  Just keep trying!
