    When reservations for dining at a WDW restaurant are full, is that it or are some tables set aside for walk in guests? Do walk ins have a chance at seating anyway due to cancellations?

    Hi Robert!

    Unfortunately, no tables are set aside for walk up guests.  That's why it is very important to make an advanced dining reservation.  However, there are a lot of "no shows" especially if the weather is bad.  Thus I do recommend stopping by a restaurant and checking if interested. 

    Also be sure to consider restaurants in the resort hotels.  With the exception of a few restaurants, such as Chef Mickey's in the Contemporary Resort, I think it is much easier to get a reservation at a resort hotel than in a theme park.

    Also, the restaurants at Disney's Boardwalk and the nearby hotels are all within walking distance of the International Gateway entrance of Epcot.  That makes it easy to get to them if you can't get a reservation at a Table Service restaurant in Epcot.

    Enjoy planning and write back if you have any more questions!
