    Hello!, visiting wdw in 9/13 for 10 days, couldnt make ADR for CRT and BOG, any chance I could do a walk in?, what times you recommend better to try it?, what other restaurants do you recommend? 4 grown ups, and a 15 year old girl, all kids at heart!

    Hi Adriana! It sounds like you will have a fun group visiting Walt Disney World in just over a month. You must all be getting very excited about this vacation!

    Walk up dining at the Table Service establishments is rare. Cinderella's Royal Table seems to never have walk ups at any time if day as it is one of the most highly sought after reservation on property. The good news is that although the Be Our Guest new restaurant is also highly sought after for dinner dining it is open for all guests for lunch. It opens around 11am and I would suggest you are in line between 10-10:30am so you get in quickly. Otherwise, the wait can get quite long around the noon hour. Lunch there is a different menu but I actually prefer lunch over dinner. It still allows you to enjoy the new dining rooms and atmosphere.

    Other spots that are favorites for our family include 50's Primetime Cafe in Hollywood Studios as well as the Brown Derby. In the Magic Kingdom we enjoy Liberty Tree Tavern. We actually head to a quick service spot in the Animal Kingdom called Flametree Barbecue over a reservation dining for that park day.  Epcot is full of incredible dining in the World Showcase with our favorites including Teppan Edo in Japan, Via Napoli in Italy, Germany's Biergarten, Mexico's La Hacienda, United Kingdom's Rose and Crown, and France's Chef de France.

    Resort dining is also wonderful and you might enjoy some fun places that include Whispering Canyon at the Wilderness Lodge. Check out Jiko's or Sanaa at the Animal Kingdom Lodge for some animal sightings. Fine dining can include Artists Point, Citricos, Flying Fish, and Yachtsman Steakhouse. And if you want a knee slapping dining experience check out the great Hoop Dee Doo at Fort Wilderness. So many to choose from!
