Disney Dining: Reservation or No Reservation?
If there is a certain restaurant you desperately want to dine at, make reservations as soon as possible: in-demand tables fill up months early. For instance, Magic Kingdom’s Be Our Guest is very difficult to get in or dining, and so is the tiny Le Cellier Steakhouse in Epcot’s Canada pavilion.
If you can’t preplan, some restaurants might be able to work you in, but your chances improve dramatically if you’re willing to dine at off-peak times such as the minute meal service begins, which varies per location but is usually around 11:30 a.m. for lunch and 4 p.m. for dinner.
I know this is difficult to believe, but there are restaurants outside of the theme parks as well as at Downtown Disney. Make sure you look into these options, because some of the best restaurants are at the resorts! Downtown Disney is also an option and those restaurants normally have availability.
There are also usually restaurants that always have availability, however there is normally a reason why. If you want the best of the best, I recommend making your dining reservations ASAP to snag the places and times you want!
