    We try every year to get a reservation at Topolino's for dinner. Is it better to just do a walk up instead of refreshing the app?

    Hi Allison! Topolino’s Terrace at Disney’s Riviera Resort is a popular Disney Dining location for sure! I hope you get a reservation for your upcoming visit!

    I always recommend trying to secure an advanced reservation using the My Disney Experience app! You can begin making advanced reservations 60-days prior to your vacation arrival date. If you’re staying at a hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection, you can make reservations for up to 10-days of vacation! That gives you a bit of an advantage when trying to secure those very popular dining locations!

    If you find that reservations are not available, keep trying! You’ll be surprised at what reservation opportunities will pop up. I will search for reservations at all times of the morning, afternoon, and night. I can almost always find a reservation – even for the most popular dining locations. When you open the app, tap on the search option (magnifying glass). Then enter Topolino’s Terrace in the search. Tap the icon that states, “Reserve Dining” and follow the prompts to select your dining preferences. 

    If you can’t secure an advanced dining reservation, then it’s always a good idea to try to join the walk-up list, also available on your My Disney Experience app. Remember, to use the "Join Walk-Up List" option on the app, you must be within proximity of the restaurant. I'm sending a whole bunch of pixie dust your way in hopes that you get the reservation!

    Happy Planning!
