    We have been trying to get reservations to Ohana's for our Sept vacation, but have been unable to. In the event we can't get one, what are the chances of walking up and getting a table? We are a party of 3. It's the one place my son wants the most.

    Hi Jennifer!

    I am sorry you are having trouble getting a reservation at 'Ohana.  It's a very popular restaurant and fills up quickly as reservations become available.  

    There would be no guarantee for a walk-up reservation, although you can certainly give it a shot.  On the plus side, you have a small party, so that would help.  

    My recommendation is to continue to check back for cancellations.  I have often been able to get a reservation closer to my trip as someone cancels theirs.

    Another option is called Disney Dining Buddy.  This is not an official Disney service, but one that I have used several times.  Essentially, they constantly monitor the reservations for what you're looking for (you give them a specified date/time) and will alert you when one becomes available.  You can then book it on your own.  I have had success with it every time I've used it.  It costs around $8 per request.

    I hope this helps!  Good luck with your reservation, and please let me know if you have any other questions.
