    question about dining: I know you can make reservations, and I have for a few places already- but can you just walk into any of these places and sit down to eat or do you usually need a reservation? Also- if it's at 4:30 & park closes at 5? What happen

    Hello Melissa!

    Advanced Dining Reservations for Table Service dining locations at the Walt Disney World Resort are very highly recommended. There is a possibility you may be able to secure a table at these dining locations when you walk in, however you may be using valuable vacation time going from restaurant to restaurant inquiring about availability. If working around dining times during your entire stay doesn't seem like your type of vacationing style, you can always enjoy some fantastic meals at numerous Quick Service dining locations located throughout the Walt Disney World Resort as most of these restaurants do not accept reservations.

    If you have Advanced Dining Reservations or are seated at a Table Service restaurant close to Theme Park closing time, rest assured you will be served without rush. You are welcome to relax and enjoy your meal.

    Wishing you and your family a delicious vacation, Melissa!
