    My SO & I are very laid-back when it comes to vacation, we never make "planned" activities or eat at a certain time. We go with the flow (have no kids) & eat when we feel its time to. Will we be denied at any restaurant w/o a ADR?

    Hi Rebecca!

    It's hard to say.  Sometimes it can be difficult to get into a popular Disney restaurant without a reservation, but it does happen.  Since we live in Florida, we often take last minute trips without dining reservations.  We can usually get into somewhere, but it may not be our first choice.  Depending how how booked a restaurant is, especially one that requires a credit card when booking, they may tell you flat out that they cannot accommodate walk-ups.  I've heard this several times at 'Ohana's.  Others will give you a wait time that could be anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours.  It never hurts to ask!  If you are unable to get into to a table service restaurant, there are plenty of quick service restaurants that have delicious food and you will never be turned away from them.

    Have a magical day!
