    Are you able to put your name on a waiting list at a restaurant in WDW if they don't have any reservations? If so, how?

    Hi, there!

     Rachel, I'm so happy to see that your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is only a week away. You must be eagerly counting down the days with excitement and anticipation!

     One of my favorite things to do at the Walt Disney World Resort is EAT. With over 300 dining locations in and out of the theme parks, there are certainly lots of options to choose from!

     Dining reservations for Table-Service restaurants have been a bit more difficult to come by than in years past. But it's certainly possible to put your name on a waitlist at Table-Service dining locations! To do so, just stop by the host stand and inquire about same-day availability. Some restaurants, like Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera offer a mobile dine walk-up availability feature on the My Disney Experience mobile app. With this feature, you can add your party to the walk-up list at select Table-Service dining locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort without having to visit a host stand. How cool is that? You can view the list of restaurants that offer mobile dine walk-up availability on the Walt Disney World Resort website. To join a mobile dine walk-up list, check availability at participating restaurants on the app by clicking "Join Walk-Up List" or scan the QR code located in the restaurant's lobby. Easy!

     Did you know the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival just began? Your upcoming visit is the perfect time to check it out! 

     Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Rachel. I'm wishing you a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
