    To use Mobile Dine Walk-up, do you have to stay at the Resort where the restaurant is located in order to join the list?

    Hey there, Keri!

    It's great to see you here at planDisney! I hope your question means that you're starting to plan for a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Thanks for your great question about the Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability service at Walt Disney World Resort. I'm happy to share you do not need to be a Guest of a Resort hotel in order to use Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability at one of that Resort's dining locations where Walk-up Availability is offered. I think the Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability makes for a quick and convenient way to use the My Disney Experience mobile app to check out which participating restaurants have current walk-up availability and then add yourself and your dining party to a waitlist. In addition to using the My Disney Experience mobile app to check availability, you can use your mobile device to scan the QR code you'll find in the restaurant's lobby. With Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability, you can get to enjoy some delicious and fun dining table service experiences. 

    Keri, if you do have a particular Resort hotel restaurant in mind where you want to be sure to experience their delicious menu offerings during your stay, I would still encourage making a dining reservation. 

    And speaking of reservations, when you're making your plans to visit Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, be sure to check out the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar to make sure the theme parks have reservation availability on the days you want to visit. You can then make your theme park reservations using the Disney Park Pass system and manage all your theme park tickets and reservations with My Disney Experience.

    Keri, here's wishing you all the fun of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. If you have more questions as you make your plans, be sure to come back and ask us here at planDisney!

Meet the Panelist: Jerry, Pennsylvania

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
