    Hi there. Is there a list of TS restaurants that you do not have to make dining reservations for? We are three weeks away and having a tough time finding availability. I don't want my DDP to go to waste because I could not find reservations.

    Hi Kasey! 

    All of the Walt Disney World Table Service restaurants require Advanced Dining Reservations, however there are some tips for getting last minute reservations.

    1. Try booking restaurants for off-times. It's much easier to find a reservation for 2:00 or 3:00 for lunch or 9:00 p.m. for dinner. I like to have a light snack mid-morning and then book a late lunch.

    2. Look for restaurants that are off the beaten path. Some of the restaurants that are typically easier to find reservations for include, Restaurant Marrakesh, Artist Point, Captain's Grille and Maya Grill

    3. Check back 48-24 hours prior to your desired reservation time. Since Advanced Dining Reservations require a credit card guarantee and guests will be charged if they don't cancel 48-24 hours prior to the reservation (depending upon the restaurant) you will find many cancellations within that timeframe. 

    You will definitely be able to find reservations using those tips.
