    Hi there! I will be in WDW In April...and i had no idea reservations should be made way in advance.. that being said I cant get in a reservation for "Be Our Guest Restaurant". Can I still go to certain busy restaurant and try and be seated?

    Hi Victoria!

    Be Our Guest restaurant is Quick Service for lunch, meaning to reservation is required. It is a very popular restaurant so I suggest showing up at around 11 am. The restaurant is a Table Service restaurant for dinner. For Table Service restaurants, you can try walking up without a reservation but that can be very hit or miss, and more miss during a busy time of the year. If you want to walk up, I suggest tying just when the restaurant opens or after peak hours. You will also have more success generally at a resort hotel restaurant rather than a theme park restaurant.  It is very hard to walk up to a Disney Character Dining Experience. 

    I hope this helps. Please write back with more questions.
