    Reservations are not available for the restaurants we would like to go to at the Magic Kingdom. Will the restaurants take walk ins? We are hoping to go to the Crystal Palace...

    Hi, Megan! Crystal Palace rocks. According to my 2 year old, that's where you'll find "Tigg 'n Pooh" (repeat this phrase 20 times fast for the full effect of his verbal assessment of the establishment.)

    The best advice for that particular restaurant that I can offer is keep trying. Try making an ADR online several times a day in the event that someone cancels if it's a must-do. Restaurants typically reserve a few tables for walkups each day, but I don't like to cut it that close.

    If no ADRs are available within the Magic Kingdom, think about dining somewhere at a Magic Kingdom area resort. Resorts on the monorail loop are especially easy to get to (and many of the restaurants have adult beverages - something you won't find at the Magic Kingdom.) If you're looking for a character buffet, consider Chef Mickey's, 'Ohana (breakfast) or 1900 Park Fare. Non-character meal? Look at California Grill, Kona Cafe, Citricos or Narcoosee's.
