    do you have to have reservations at restaurants? we waited to late to make reservations, if it says no reservations available can you still take you chances and get to walk in and get a table?

    Hi Jennifer!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for stopping by with such a great question. You must be getting so excited for your upcoming vacation! You're asking about one of my favorite things to do while visiting Walt Disney World Resort: eat! My family looks forward to our favorite meals just as much as we look forward to riding our favorite attractions!

    I'm so sorry your first attempt to book Advanced Dining Reservations was not as successful as you would have wanted, but please don't give up hope! Please continue to check online as Guests' plans often change, resulting in reservation times opening up every day! If you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort for your magical vacation and still don't have reservations to your favorite restaurants, I absolutely suggest walking up to each restaurant, seeing if they have availability that day and if so, what the wait time is. My family and I were just visiting Walt Disney World Resort last week and were seated at Kona Cafe without a reservation and with only a five minute wait!

    Jennifer, I'm sending you tons of pixie dust in the hopes that you are able to make Advanced Dining Reservations before your upcoming vacation. If you have any other questions, please come back and visit us again!
