    My family of four is set to visit AK on Monday, Feb 28th. Try as I might, I have not been able to secure a reservation for breakfast at Tusker House that morning. Is it possible to try to get a walk-in seating, what time do they open and best time to try?

    Hi Trinity,

    I know how frustrating it can be to want a reservation at a particular Disney restaurant when there aren't any available.  What I recommend is to keep calling (407) WDW-DINE up until the day before your desired reservation date.  If you are staying at a Disney resort, ask the concierge at your hotel to check for you as well.  Then, if you are still unable to secure a reservation for the desired date, you may walk up to the restaurant that day to see if there is availability.  Obviously, there's a distinct possibility that nothing may be available, but if you arrive at park opening time (which is 8 am for Disney resort guests and 9 am for guests staying elsewhere on February 28th) your chances of getting seated at the restaurant improve.  Be prepared to wait, if necessary, and have a back-up plan in case nothing is available at Tusker House that morning.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed that that they will be able to accommodate your family for breakfast on Monday!
