    My family and I will be there from Nov. 28th-Dec. 3rd. Unfortunately, I missed my dining reservation window and place I would like to reserve is booked! If we have a party of 3-7, depending on the day and time, how easy will it be to walk up and get in?

    Hi Alicia!

    You are going to have an amazing time at Walt Disney World! You are visiting at a wonderful time of the year, as the Christmas decorations will be up and you can buy tickets to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party

    Don't despair, you haven't completely missed your Advanced Dining Reservation booking window. While you may have missed the first day, which is 180 days prior to your vacation, you can definitely keep trying to obtain the reservation for the restaurant you are seeking.

    Unfortunately, obtaining a seat at a restaurant at Walt Disney World by just walking up the day is extremely difficult. However, I encourage you to keep trying to book online. You may also want to try booking at a time of day that is typically not as popular, such as 2:00 p.m. for lunch or 8:00 p.m. for dinner.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
