This may be a long shot, but I have a slight hope that the space-themed restaurant by Mission Space may be open by the time we get there for our Sept 31/Oct 1 trip. (Yes, going to be there for the Illuminations/Epcot Forever transition)
Does anyone have experience on how to snag a reservation at a restaurant that is just opening, never been in that situation before. It is just trolling the Disney Park Blog looking for announcements and then pouncing on WDW dining reservations as soon as you see something? I’m up for the trolling if there is a chance that may work. It just seems logistically challenging to open up a restaurant where the normal reservation lead time is 180 days and I’m sure they can’t predict to the day when the place will open six monhts in advance, so there must be some different way reservations get started.
Any suggestions appreciated.
