No Ressies

Are there any really good Disney restaurants that will seat you without a ressie? Me and DH will have 1 date night without the kiddos and I don't want to plan anything. Any suggestions????

The Downtown Disney restaurants are your best bet...Raglan Road would be my suggestion.

Just depends on where you go. IMHO, I would try The Wave, it usually isn't terribly busy and you can usually get in without an ADR although you may need to wait but shouldn't be too long. Feel free to check out our review:

Try the Swan/Dolphin restaurants. They are the best on property, very adult, and not on the dining plan so they are usually not packed. My personal favorite is bluezoo but Il Mulino and Shulas are also excellent.

I agree with this as well. We had no problem getting into Il Mulino on the same day-we did call about an hour or so before we went over there so it can't hurt to do that. I believe you can still call the restaurant directly, this way your table would be ready when you arrive. (almost like "call ahead")

Il Mulino is another one we really enjoy! Feel free to check out our review if you haven't already seen it...

Use the Disney App earlier that day and see what is available, then make the reservation from your phone and head over.

We did that a couple of times on our last trip. We were supposed to eat at Liberty Tree Tavern and our ADR was a lot later than I wanted to eat. I checked the app, Marrkaresh was available earlier, so I changed the reservation and we ate in Morocco. It was easy to do and we didn't walk all of the way to a restaurant only to find out that they were full.
