    We are coming to WDW in May, and I booked all of our dining reservations last month. However, I really wanted to go to Be Our Guest but they are completely booked. Is there a waiting list in case someone cancels? I really so badly want to experience it!

    Hi Amanda:

    While there are no waitlists, in many cases, it's possible to walk up to a Disney Restaurant for a reservation that evening.  It will depend on specific crowd levels and any cancellations.  You may be asked to wait for a while, so be prepared.  In a handful of cases, I've seen the front desk at a restaurant tell Guests that they will absolutely not have room that evening and they are not accepting walk ups.  So also be prepared to dine elsewhere if you take the chance on a walk up. 

    Your best bet for a walk up would be to head to the restaurant early to get your name down. I would also call Disney Dining every day to check on last-minute cancellations.  If you are unable to secure a reservation or a walk up at Be Our Guest, the restaurant is also open for casual lunch, which my family enjoyed last vacation.

    Enjoy your vacation and good luck.
