    Hello! We are going to Disney World May 25th-June 1st. I didn't realize that T-Rex was changed to accept the Disney Dining Plan and now there is no availability any day of our vacation. Is there anyway we are still able to get a reservation?


    So there are two plans of action you can take.

    • First, keep calling for reservations. People cancel, added seating might occur, etc. I would recommend calling twice a week until your vacation. I have heard of plenty of people getting lucky with these harder-to-get tables.
    • Second, consider dropping by. Sure, they may tell you the wait is going to be intolerably long, but sometimes they hold back seating for walk-ups, and you can get in in short order.
    I know that these both seem like long shots, but really they are not. I know of plenty of past examples where I or friends have succeeded with both these tactics. The first one is the more likely to occur, but both are worth your while.

    If you would like some alternate recommendations, please write me back with locations and meal times.

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
