    Hi Jaime!

    Thanks for sending your questions to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Very happy to hear that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort! The Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant is amazing! I can certainly see why you want to make the reservations. The only app where you can check dining reservations is the My Disney Experience App, however it doesn't have the feature to alert you when a reservation opens up. This doesn't necessarily mean that you won't get a reservation. The last time I dined at the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater restaurant, I actually walked up to the check-in area and told the hostess that I didn't have a reservation and they were able to accommodate my party. If you have a large party, you may have a hard time being seated without reservation. It's always best to go early in the day and ask if you can be accommodated as a walk-in. I would also highly recommend that you continue to check the Dining Reservations page as guests often cancel. If you are unable to get a reservation, check back the day before as the cancellation policy for dining charges guests if they don't cancel within 24 hours of the reservation. I have found many great reservations within the 24-hour window due to that cancellation policy. Hope this helps!
