One free service provided by TouringPlans is our dining reservation finder. Walt Disney World has a lot of restaurants, but many of the more popular restaurants book quickly. Sometimes tips like book as soon as your reservation window opens, or try OpenTable for non-Disney-owned restaurants aren’t enough to ensure you get the reservation you want.
Enter the Dining Reservation Finder.
Adding a request is simple. First, make sure you have signed up for a free TouringPlans account and are logged in. (And if you want to be a paid subscriber, even better! There’s so much a paid subscription can get you.)
Next, click the Add New Request button.
Select your restaurant from the drop-down list, select your party size, enter the dates that you are hoping to find a reservation, choose what meal or time you’re looking for, and provide an email address or phone number for text messages so you can receive the alert. Click the green Save icon, and you’re all set. The status icon will change to let you know that it has been added to the search queue.
Now just sit back and wait. When a reservation is found that meets your criteria, for instance in this example, a breakfast for four at Be Out Guest in Magic Kingdom for any date between January 6 and 10, 2020, you will be contacted in your specified method and updated on the web site.
Then it is go time! Log into your MyDisneyExperience app or go to the Disney Dining page and snag that reservation.
Not fast enough to snag the reservation? Just come back to the page and re-start the search. Looking for more than one hard-to-get meal? You can have a maximum of two active searches at a time.

Good luck, and good dining!
