    For dining reservations. If dining is booked for a certain restaurant. Is there a wait list? If so, how do you get put on it. Thanks

    Hello Kitty!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Thank you so much for stopping in to ask a question about my favorite Disney topic;  FOOD!   With so many delicious and varied options, everyone in your party is sure to find something they will really enjoy.

    Advanced Dining Reservations are a great way to secure a spot at your must-do dining locations.   Often the most popular dining venues do fill up.   Disney does not have a waiting list, but most restaurants will try to accommodate walk ups.  I have found that if you walk in right when the restaurant is opening for breakfast or dinner you have a better shot of getting a table.   Another option is to keep checking daily, other Guests plans will change and they may cancel a spot at the restaurant you are looking at.   I have found many reservations 24 hours before I plan on dining because that is the cut-off for canceling without penalty.   

    I hope this has helped.  Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you.   It's so fun to help out fellow Guests.
