    Is there any possibility of getting into the restaurant "Be our Guest" without a dining reservation? We are going to be at Disney World week January 8-12, 2018. Thank you !!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Richard ~

    I'm so happy to see that you're planning ahead for your trip because it will be here before you know it.

    Be Our Guest Restaurant is a super popular dining location. Advanced dining reservations are highly recommended for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you are unable to get a reservation, I'd recommend that you keep checking daily on the link provided above and on the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    If you haven't had success prior to leaving for your visit, keep checking even once you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort. Guests will sometimes make advanced dining reservations early and once their trips get closer and they start firming up their plans, they may cancel some of their reservations which will free up times for other Guests.

    You can try walking up as some Guests cancel last minute for a number of reasons. I will admit that I've never had success doing that at Be Our Guest Restaurant. If you try walking up, I'd suggest going just as they start to serve (breakfast, lunch or dinner) so it gives you the widest window of time for them to try and accommodate your party. If you have little ones in your party that may be disappointed if you don't get in, send a "scout" ahead and you distract their attention while they are checking.

    There is still time so keep trying! In the meantime, please feel free to visit us with all of your last minute planning questions. We will be hEAR for you until you embark on your pixie dusted trail!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
