    Can we eat dinner at Chef Mickey's without a reservation? Do they accept walk ins? Every time I try to do an advance dining it says no available times but we really want to try it out!

    Hey there, Brisadelmar. Welcome to planDisney

    I see that you have a trip planned to the most magical place on earth next spring. That's such a fabulous time to visit the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. The weather is just perfect - bright and sunny! Be sure to pack your swimsuits, it's great swimming temperatures that time of year. 

    Brisadelmar, you are able to make advanced dining reservations for restaurants at Walt Disney World 60 days in advance. That would be why you aren't seeing any availability because they haven't opened spring dates up yet. If you are checking in to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel on April 8, 2023, then you can start making your advanced dining reservations on Tuesday, February 7th. At that time, you'll be able to make your reservations for the length of your stay up to 10 days. Dining reservations open up at 6:00 a.m. each day via your MyDisneyExperience account or at 7:00 a.m. by calling 407-WDW-DINE. Some of the most popular places, like Chef Mickey's, do tend to fill up quickly. So if you can, I highly suggest being online to make your reservations right before that 6:00 a.m. timeframe. 

    On the off-chance that you still aren't able to secure a dining reservation for Chef Mickey's, you can visit the check-in podium and see if they have any same-day availability. On occasion, this has happened so I never would just rule that out if you have your heart set on dining there. 

    I have my fingers crossed you'll be able to get a dining reservation for Chef Mickey's when it is time to make your advanced dining reservations, Brisadelmar. If you have any other questions about this, or anything else, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm here to help.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
