    Hi Cory,

    I would encourage you to make some reservations prior to arrival, especially if you have your heart set on any specific places/times and/or character dining.  However, it is possible to visit Walt Disney World without any reservations if you don't mind being a bit more adventurous and flexible with your dining time.  

    I'd click here and take a look at the restaurants; if you see something you'd really like to dine at, I'd make reservations.  If you are open to trying anything, then you can probably arrive without reservations.  When you are ready to eat, you can stop by any of the restaurants you are interested in to check on availability. You can also check at Guest Relations at the parks to check on openings; often openings can be found at the resorts. You may also want to consider dining at off times when the crowds will be lighter.  Flexibility will be the key for dining without reservations.

    Thank you for visiting the Moms Panel; please let us know if we can help again.
