    Will be staying at Port Orleans Riverside. I will plan on making ADR for various restaurants, however if we decide to change up our plans and skip a place we have reserved and head back to hotel how likely is it we could get in at Boatwrights w/o a ADR?

    Hi Kim! Boatwright's is one of those hidden gems that usually doesn't book up in advance. You'd have a good chance of dining there without a reservation unless you're visiting Walt Disney World during a time of peak attendance. Like most restaurants, if you show up during prime dining hours, you may have to wait a bit for a table if the restaurant is busy, but it's generally not too hard to snag a table at Boatwright's. Consider heading over to the River Roost lounge after dinner to see YeHaa Bob's show!

    If you decide not to use an Advance Dining Reservation at a restaurant, be sure to cancel it so that the restaurant will know that table is available to offer to other guests. Don't forget that some restaurants require a credit card guarantee and 24 hours (or more) notice of cancellation -- you'll incur a charge if you fail to appear for a reservation at one of those.

    Wishing you a magical vacation! Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We're happy to help!
