    Hi, we are on vacation from 12/6 to 12/19 and wanted to have a character meal at Chef Mickeys - the only trouble is we have called reservations and they have nothing free on the dates we are there. what is the likelihood of walking in and getting a table?

    Chef Mickey's is one of the most popular restaurants.  Your best chance would be to go and wait at the restaurant very early or very late. 

    When you arrive the hostess will give you an estimate of how long your wait time will be.  The difficult part is that everyone with a reservation will take priority over you.  You may be there waiting for 40 minutes and a new family with reservations can walk up and take the next spot. 

    It is possible to get in without a reservation, but you need a little luck and a lot of patience.  You may have a better chance at a different character breakfast like Cape May Cafe.

    Good luck
