    as a last minute thought it occured to me how cool it would be to eat at Cinderella's Royal Table or Crystal Palace for breakfast on our MK park day.

    As of right now there is no availablity for either on those dates. Wondering if anyone thinks I stand a chance of lucking into something opening up for a party of six reservation? Or should I just quit trying?

    Any tips are appreciated!

    I think it wouldn't hurt to keep trying. Yesterday I tried for the heck of it to get an earlier breakfast reservation at the Captain's Grille on one of our days, even though I had tried before with no luck, and suddenly there was an opening at 7:30am. You never know - keep trying! :)

    Keep trying, but don't get your hopes up. Just be extra happy if it happens. :)

    I say keep trying! :goodvibes Two years ago we found ourselves unexpectedly in MK for the day (Thanksgiving week) and we got a walk-up to Crystal Palace for a late lunch/early dinner.... table for 4 we waited 45 min, but we got in! :thumbsup2

    If you don't keep looking you will never know. Also try the cancellation thread for November. It is on the Reservations board where I am moving this. Because "reservation wanted" posts are not allowed on that board I am removing the dates from the original post.

    Just keep trying. If you go at an odd time like not at park opening you may have a better chance. I've had good luck in the past by looking every day or even calling while in the park. Good luck!

    Definitely keep trying....and even while you're down there, keep checking! When we went down last year, DH was able to get an ADR for Mickeys BBQ the morning of! There are bound to be cancelations for one reason or another. Good luck! :goodvibes

    Keep trying!! I tried a couple times a day for the past month to get into Ohana for dinner on my Dec trip and I got one on Monday night! I found that I have the most luck with cancellations by:

    1) subscribing to the cancellations thread and

    2) checking at night (after 5PM EST) when people are home from work sitting on their computers doing Disney related stuff
