    Do you need ADR for Whispering Canyon Sept 24? We would like to eat there the day we arrive but don't want to get stuck paying a no show fee if something would happen with our flight.

    Hi, Diane!

    There is no guarantee that a table will be available without having a dining reservation.  If you do not want to book ahead of time, I would check your My Disney Experience app on your smart phone as soon as you land in Florida, once you know you are able to make it to dinner. Based on availability you can book a table right on your phone which is super convenient.

    You can just show up at the podium and hope for the best, but the Whispering Canyon Cafe is often completely booked so you would be taking that chance. I would probably try around 8:00 if I was going to attempt dining here without a reservation.

    This is one of my favorite dining locations so I hope you are able to make it for dinner!  Good luck!
