    Sorry to bother you all again ... We couldn't get ADR for T-Rex at Downtown Disney :( I even tried calling, but still no luck. Does anyone know about how long is the wait time for dinner on a weekday without reservations? We're leaving in less than a week!

    Hi Jessica! 

    You will NEVER bother us with a question! Please, ask us as many questions as you want, it is our absolute pleasure to help you! It brings me great joy to be able to make your vacation magical!

    I'm sorry to hear that you couldn't get an ADR for T-Rex, but please don't lose hope! You can often score ADRs to restaraunts the closer the date comes. As many guests book more ADRs than they need, then they cancel the ones that they know they will not be able to keep as the date nears. Call back everyday to check the status of a reservation becoming available.

    The possibility to obtain a table without an ADR is challenging, BUT I have a secret tip for you. Go to T-Rex during an "off-time" such as anytime between 2:00 and 4:00. Because this time frame is less crowded because it is between meals, you can often get a seat without an ADR. You can also try late at night, as many guests are enjoying the fireworks or other shows. That is your best bet for scoring a table without an ADR. If you go during peak times (like 6:00 p.m.) during the dinner rush without an ADR, you may not get a seat at all, or you could be waiting for a couple of hours. 

    Keep checking back by calling 407-WDW-DINE. And please let me know if I can help you with anything else at all!
