    We are visiting 5/8/09-5/16/09. I wanted to get reservations for Chef Mickey and it is completely booked through our whole stay. Do I keep calling? Do they hold open reservations for walk-ins? Do I check with our hotel? Any suggestions?

    Hi Debra,

    Chef Mickey's is a tough one as it is very popular and tends to fill up very fast. I would definitely keep calling to check as there are occasionally cancellations. My understanding of the reservation system is that the restaraunts do not hold tables for walk-ups, meaning if the reservationists are advising the restaraunt is full, then they are full. You are welcome to ask at the hostess stand, once you arrive on property, in the event there are last minute openings or no-shows. Depending on your schedule, don't forget to check for cancellations during your entire stay.

    Good luck, hope something opens up for you!
