    I want to make a reservation to end of May and there is no place en Chefs Mickey, although I know that you suggest to book with 180 prior days, I would like to know if there is a chance to insist? Thanks

    Hi Lorena,

    It can be difficult to score an Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR) at some of the most popular Walt Disney World restaurants, such as Chef Mickey. It is definitely best to book 180 days prior to your reservation date, however not all hope is lost if you are unable to score an ADR. Guests who have an ADR may change their plans and cancel their reservation, so keep calling back daily to see if a spot has opened up. I experienced this during my last vacation. I called back everyday to score an ADR at Le Cellier and I was finally able to get one the week of my vacation!

    Also, even though it is unlikely to be able to walk-up for a table at these locations, if you are unable to get an ADR you can always arrive the day you would like to dine and ask if there have been any last minute cancellations or no-shows. There is always a chance that you can get a table this way.
