    I noticed that some restaurants have a walk-up list. Can I join the list prior to the hours listed for lunch or dinner, or do I need to try during those times?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Lisa! 

    I’m so excited to discuss Disney dining with you; after all, it’s one of my favorite subjects! Whether you’re interested in breakfast at Topolino’s Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera at Disney’s Riviera Resort for a magically modified character dining experience and a delicious selection of pastries served in a ceramic paint bucket or looking to bring the classic fairytale of Beauty and the Beast to life by dining inside Beast’s enchanted castle at Be Our Guest Restaurant at Magic Kingdom Park, you are sure to love all the Disney dining options! 

    Lisa, I absolutely adore the new Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability feature offered through the My Disney Experience Mobile App! This service will add your party to the walk-up list at select table-service locations. You can check if there’s availability at the restaurants or by scanning the QR code provided at the Table Service of your choice. Once you’ve done this, you will follow the steps to add your party to the walk-up list if it is available. I contacted a Cast Member at Disney Dining for you and was told the service becomes available on the day of your visit. You will be able to join the list when you get to the Theme Park or Disney Resorts Collection hotel and will be able to join the list at any time during your visit if available! 

    If at any point a reservation you really want doesn’t work out, don’t fret. Walt Disney World Resort offers so many incredible options and you’ll be able to try a new magical dining experience. Who knows, maybe it’ll become a new favorite! 

    Have an enchanting time, Lisa!
