    Hanifah from MD Asked

    Can I join Chef Mickey's walk up list from Magic Kingdom? What is the furthest distance I can be to join any walk up list restaurant?

    Hello, Hanifah, and welcome to planDisney!

    Our family visited Walt Disney World Resort last summer and had a nice breakfast at Chef Mickey's during our stay at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort. While advance dining reservations are highly recommended, you're welcome to visit the location as a walk up. 

    To put your name down as a walk up Guest, you will need to be at the dining location. You can ask the Cast Members if there have been any reservation cancelations. If there are not, the Cast Members may tell you to return around a certain time later in the day.

    Be sure to download the My Disney Experience app if you have not already. I use the app to update our family's plans, make dining reservations, and browse restaurant menus before we place a mobile order at select quick-service locations. During your visit to Walt Disney World you can continue checking availability for Chef Mickey's and other dining locations with the app.

    The planDisney Panel has several Panel Extras that may help you with your vacation plans, including dining options. Check out What Would I Order? to read a few recommendations from the Panel on what to order at some of our favorite Disney dining spots. We love the variety of food options at Walt Disney World! 

    Hanifah, please let the Panel know if we can help you with any other questions as you continue planning your magical Walt Disney World vacation.

    Have a magical day!
