Do your research and have a plan.

TIP TWO – BE FLEXIBLE

Say you’re looking for a “7p.m.” Dinner Reservation, and you’re searching for that exact timeframe through MyDisneyExperience. Well, the Disney dining system is actually only giving what you’re looking for. This means you’re possibly missing out on a full “dinner” service reservation that could be a little earlier or little later.

Open up the search options, choose dinner for a time, you may be surprised by the results. A 5p.m. ADR and an 8:30p.m. ADR are both acceptable if you are able to plan around them with naps, snacks, and flexibility.



TIP THREE – 24 HOUR PERIOD

You can book a Disney dining reservation online at MyDisneyExperience.com or by calling (407) WDW-DINE. At the time of booking you will be asked to secure your Disney Dining Reservation by a $10 deposit. This deposit is odd but opens a world of possibilities.

The actual wording of the “Credit Card Guarantee” is:

Reservations must be cancelled at least one day prior to avoid $10 per person cancellation and/or no show fee.  Plan to arrive 5 minutes prior to your reservation time to check-in and allow up to 1.5 hours to travel to your destination when using Disney Transportation.  Menu items, pricing, and hours are subject to change without notice and 18% gratuity will be automatically applied for parties of 6 or more.  Special Seating Requests may be done upon arrival at the podium. 

So, what all this means is, you MUST cancel 24-hours prior in order to not get charged. Most guests adhere to this policy in order to avoid the charges. If you are thinking about using the system to your advantage search 23 hours out from when you’d like to secure your reservation. You will be shocked at how many reservations become available and hard to eat at Disney restaurants.


BONUS TIP – THE “WALK-UP”

Did you know that some restaurants don’t put those last-minute cancellations back into the ADR system?

You may just want to do what’s called a “Walk-Up.” In order to do this, you simply head to a dining establishment, go up to the podium and ask if there are available tables.


Good luck on your attempt to Be Our Guest!
