    If we do not have reservations at the more popular restaurants, such as Be Our Guest, or Crystal Palace, can we still be seated with a wait?

    Hello, Vanita!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    Thanks for submitting your question.  These two restaurants certainly are favorites amongst our guests and securing a reservation for either of these two can be quite discouraging.  Personally, I believe you have more of a chance of being able to be seated at The Crystal Palace than Be Our Guest.  It may be due to the fact that Be Our Guest is new to the Magic Kingdom and everyone is talking about it.  It is quite the experience!  I have had success with walking up and securing a reservation at The Crystal Palace, but not with every attempt.  Many factors can come into play such as time of year and crowd levels.  At this time, your chances at Be Our Guest do not look good.  Your best bet is to keep trying on the official Walt Disney World web page or by calling (407)WDW-DINE. Remember,  lunch is Quick-Service Dining and you do not need a reservation.  If you cannot get in for dinner, just keep this in mind.  If you cannot secure a reservation prior to your visit, I still recommend taking your chances and walking-up and asking once you arrive at the parks.  It may be your lucky day.  I am sending pixie dust covered thoughts your way!

    ~Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON"!~
