    Hi I am looking at dining options throughout WDW do you have to make reservations for all restaurants or can you just walk in?

    Hi Leanne,

    Due to the popularity of Disney's incredible restaurants, Advanced Dining Reservations are strongly recommended. They are essentially required for all character meals and many of the other super popular restaurants. I have been able to walk-up without a reservation to a couple of restaurants, but had a bit of a wait. I've also been turned away without a reservation. It's always better to be safe than sorry, so I make my dining reservations 180 days in advance. You can do this by calling 407-WDW-DINE.

    Have a wonderful vacation,
