If a restaurant is booked will it still have tables for walk-ins?

I can't find any availability for T-Rex (DTD) for the week we are there. Could we just show up? I realize we may have to wait an hour or so, but that would be fine.

December 16th here we come!

Did you call the restaurant directly? Others have said they couldn't book thru Disney, but T-Rex isn't owned by Disney. They had success calling the restaurant.

The DTD restaurants only release a portion of their reservations to Disney so you can call T-Rex directly and make a reservation.

The restaurants in the parks and resorts don't save tables for walk ups.

This past June (3rd week), I walked up to T-Rex and asked for the possibility of getting a table for 6. We got a ressie for about an hour later. I did not call ahead, just walked up to the podium. Of course, the week of Dec 16 is definitely more crowded than the 3rd week of June (did the Dec week a couple of years ago), so it may not work then....
