    We're squeezing in a surprise trip to MK Thanksgiving week. Are dining reservations released as people cancel them, or is there a certain time of day I'd have the best luck scoring a cancelation?

    My best guess would be the day or two before the day that the money is due. I don't remrmber if it's 45 days or 30days. People make reservations and sometimes they have to cancel their trips. I have been checking several times a day for the last few weeks and have had success getting a few ADRs that I never thought I would get.Good Luck

    Personally, if it was a place I was really keen on going to, I would be checking every other day online.

    I have noticed though they do sometimes have more options when calling so maybe worth trying that way too.

    I'm not sure about releasing canceled ADRs, but I do know that WDW Dine doesn't hang on to available ADRs when there are people who want them.

    We have always had luck trying very early in the morning (5-6 am).

    When trying to get BOG nothing was available online but when I called they were able to do a more thorough search. Same for the Villains Soiree (trip report still to come on that btw) .
