    Are all table service restaurants full of reservation only customers or do they save a certain percentage of the restaurant for walk ups?

    Disney does not set aside a percentage of restaurant seats for walk-ups. They will fully book a restaurant with reservations if they can.

    During the busiest times of the year, it can be all but impossible to dine at a table service restaurant without a reservation. The rest of the time, you can still often get a seat as a walk-up. Here are some things to keep in mind:

    - Walk-ups may have to wait longer for a table.

    - You are more likely to get a table if you are willing to eat at off hours. For example, dinner at 4:30 p.m.

    - Some restaurants are less likely to fill up. For example, in my experience it is quite easy to get a table at the yummy Restaurant Marrakesh in the Morocco pavilion at Epcot. Experiment with different foods and may have luck as a walk-up.
