    If I am unable to make a reservation at a certain restaurant for dinner or lunch, does that mean there is no chance of getting a table at all if we were to walk in? I just waited too long to try and make our reservations. Just wondering?

    Hello Scott,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It can be difficult to make Advanced Dining Reservations at certain locations even when trying at the earliest availability window time so, I can understand your frustration. I suggest that you keep checking for availability on the My Disney Experience app and/or the website. Reservations become available as people cancel them, so it's best to check frequently.

    Sometimes a restaurant can accommodate a walk up party, however, it's a bit more difficult to do at some of the more popular restaurants. I also recommend going to the Restaurant at "off times"; try for a very early or very late lunch or dinner time, you may be able to dine at the Restaurant when it is not as busy. 

    I hope this information helps. Please stop back by if you have any additional vacation planning questions!

    Magical Wishes,
