    Having hard time booking dining reservations for upcoming "last minute trip". Any tips. Are walkins allowed?

    Hello Fiona!

    Thanks so much for stopping by to see us today.  I've planned several last-minute trips and we've always managed to snag seats at some of our favorite dining locations.  The majority of dining locations will accept walk-up requests, however the waits can be quite long.  If there are any must-eats on your list, I would definitely try and get an Advanced Dining Reservation by checking the system several times per day until your vacation begins.  If you can't get an ADR, you may want to try and stop by the restaurant early in the day to see if any openings are available.  As a last effort, you can try putting your name on the walk-up list.  I definitely suggest dining during "off" hours if you go this route.  If you try to walk up at 6pm for dinner, you'll be facing a pretty decent wait at most places.

    Please come back and see us again real soon!

    Bon Appetit!
