Le Cellier Lunch without reservation? Crazy, I know.

We just had to change our plans for our trip at the end of this month (27th thru Nov 1st). We are including an extra day at Epcot now. Obviously, all reservations for Le Cellier are long gone, though I will of course keep looking. Is there any chance that we might could eat there without a reservation? Maybe right as they open or for a late lunch when they might be less crowded? I know it's crazy, but I just have to ask.

Try right when they open, but don't count on it.

Just keep checking for ADRs, you never know when someone might cancel. I agree with TDC Nala though, go at opening. There's always a chance but you just can't bank on it.

Keep checking. I cancelled a reservation for late Jan 1 recently and it was gone pretty quickly. I wish I could get it back

Good luck. We were there right at opening our ADR was for 11:40 and they were turning walk ups away. Of course we went in the middle of Sept with free dining. Keep trying even when you are there.

As others have said keep checking online & try to walk up when they open but don't get your hopes up. I've tried a couple of times to walk up at opening & have never been successful. Good luck!

Hello, I have reservations for lunch in Jan. We booked it months ago and now found out its now 2TS credits. Is it worth it for lunch? I can see dinner but lunch prices are a lot less. Any thoughts?

I have a Le Cellier ressie on Oct 27th that I may need to cancel. Are you going to Epcot on the 27th?

For what it's worth, we have had luck with getting into LC without a ressie. Twice in fact, on different occasions. Both times, we went at lunch opening and got in, with only waiting a few minutes. But I will say, it was on Jan/Feb trips, not when F & W was going and other holiday festivities.

It's only 1 TS credit at lunch.

Look at the Table Service Meals/Epcot section here:

DS walked up on Sept 8. The couple ahead of them walked in too but the couple behind them were turned away. It was 12:30 and they were a party of 3. They were very suprised and very happy!

I've gotten in several times as a walkup for lunch. I've been turned away as a walkup more than I've gotten in though and have never gotten in as a walkup at dinner. When I did get in for lunch as a walkup, I had arrived before they opened and made sure I was the first one in line.
