    Do I have to make a reservation for character dining or is it possible to get a table walking in?

    Hi Alyssa! In my experience, it is very difficult to just walk in and be seated for a Character Dining Experience. These meals are very popular and reservations go quickly. I highly suggest that you make Advanced Dining Reservations so that you know for a fact that you have a table. This way you can potentially avoid disappointment.

    You can always call ahead to see if a particular restaurant has any openings, or you can even download the My Disney Experience App on your Smartphone and try booking a dining reservation that way. 

    If you need anything else, please feel free to stop by. Have a magical Walt Disney World vacation!

I am a recent graduate from Ball State University and mother to my 5-year-old son. We love all things Disney and when we aren’t watching Disney films or planning our next vacation, we love to go to touring Disney shows. I also love to cook, listen to music, read books, and paint. With my experience planning vacations and navigating the parks from a single parent’s perspective, I hope to be able to add a little “pixie dust” to your vacation! Learn More About Sarah
