    If a dining reservation is NOT available at a table service restaurant such as Ale&Compass (Yacht Club) is there a stand by list on the day of service? Are reservations the only way to get a table at these restaurants?

    Hi Melody! 

    I was thrilled when I visited Walt Disney World a few weeks ago and discovered that I could use the My Disney Experience mobile app to add myself and other members of my party to the walk-up list at select table-service restaurants in Walt Disney World. 

    Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability is great because it allows a bit of spontaneity in choosing where and when to eat when at the park. Use your My Disney Experience app to scan the QR code located in the restaurant's lobby and then add your party to the walk-up list. When your table is ready, you will receive a notification to proceed to the restaurant. 

    Review the Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability Guide for a complete listing of participating restaurants. Some of my favorites are Tusker House in Animal Kingdom, The Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom, San Angel Inn at EPCOT, and Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano in Hollywood Studios.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
