    Is it hard to walk up and get a quick service meal at Be Our Guest without a reservation? This is our first time there and we just cant sem to get a reservation. We will be there the second week in April

    Hello Jennifer! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Dining at Be Our Guest Restaurant is an Endlessly Magical experience that I try to book for my family at least once per Walt Disney World Resort vacation. There are 2 ways that I have ensured that this experience is a part of our vacation.

    The first way to obtaining the "deeply coveted" Advanced Dining Reservations for Be Our Guest Restaurant is booking 180 days in advance of your vacation. This is your best bet as every guest faces a similar opening window for reservations.

    However, if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you will be able to book Advanced Dining Reservations through your My Disney Experience Account for your entire vacation (up to 10 days). This benefit to Guests at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels is a definite boon to getting the more difficult reservations.

    As your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is in April and well within 180 days, you will have to resort to my second tactic: obsessive checking. I check the reservations site 5 times a day, every day up to the day before the planned dining is scheduled to occur to get an Advanced Dining Reservation. Guests are constantly changing their Advanced Dining Reservations and tables frequently open up all the time.

    We these tactics(and patience), I have never had to walk up for a reservation. Although you could try, you are relying on luck and sacrificing a lot of precious Theme Park time for the experience when you "walk up".

    Best of Luck and Bon Appétit!
