    We are trying get reservations for dinner at T rex or Rainforest. Can we still get in if we don't have a reservation before we come?

    Hello, Maylee!

    This is a tricky one.  For any Walt Disney World restaurant, it is highly recommended to set a reservation to guarantee your spot.  If you choose to walk-up, due to the fact you could not secure a reservation, your chances do not look too good, but it could also be your lucky day.  You may arrive at a time where a party did not show and they may be able to seat you.  I have been lucky on two occasions.  I wish I could say you will be seated, but these are two very popular restaurants.  I do recommend calling everyday until your date of travel.  Many of our guests are courteous and cancel their reservations when they know that they will not be able to make their current reservation.  However, I will send some Pixie Dust your way and hope for the best! 

    Have a MAGICAL day!
