    Is it possible to get a table at a character meal without a reservation?

    Hello and welcome to the Moms Panel!

    Is it possible?  Yes!  We do not ever want to say "never" to our guests.  Is it highly recommended to take your chances and just pop-in?  Well, that would be a big "NO".  Character dining at Walt Disney World is a VERY popular choice for our guests.  The tables fill-up quickly and chances of securing a table with no reservation is not good at all.  If I had to choose at least one restaurant where your chances were better as a walk-in, I would say to head on over to The Crystal Palace which is located inside Disney's Magic Kingdom. Winnie-the-Pooh and the Gang are waiting to join you and your family as you enjoy your buffet style meal.  If you are wanting to enjoy a character dining experience, the best advice would be to set one today.
