    What are the chances of being able to eat of Obama without a reservation? I've tried to get a reservation but they have no tables available Sept. 11-18, 2013

    Hi Gail!

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel with your question.
    I'm guessing that your question became a victim of auto-correct - and that you're asking about eating at 'Ohana, one of my family's very favourite places to dine and a very popular location for reservations.

    This delicious Walt Disney World restaurant is generally filled every evening, far in advance. If you're really wanting to dine here, I'd definitely recommend that you persevere in your efforts. Check online each morning and make a follow up check by phone now and then as often as possible.

    If you've had no luck by the time you arrive, certainly consider arriving at the 'Ohana podium to see if you're lucky enough to get a walk-in reservation. Your best chances for this would be to arrive early at 4:30pm, or to plan for a late meal arriving at 9pm or later. If you can't get in after arriving, I highly recommend my second favourite restaurant, Kona Cafe, located just next door to 'Ohana!

    Another way to check for availability would be once you're in the parks. Simply pop into Guest Services in any of the four parks or Downtown Disney, or even at your Disney Resort Concierge desk and a Cast Member there will be pleased to check availability for you. I've been able to secure my family a few great reservations while in the parks on the same day!

    Sending Pixie Dust your way in hopes that you'll be able to secure your coveted reservation Gail!
    I hope you'll visit me again soon with more questions about your vacation.

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
