TRex wait times

The priority seating reservation we have is a little early for us. What are your experiences trying to get in as a walk up? Wondering if I should cancel and take my chances. Can you shop and build-a-Dino while you wait? Thanks!

I would try calling T-Rex directly and asking about a later time. I've done that when the online available times weren't what I was looking for.

The restaurants at DTD typically keep plenty of seating for "walk ups", BUT, you will wait, and if it's a weekend you will wait possibly an hour or two.

We recently went on a Friday and they said the wait was 110 minutes. I have the Landry's Select card so our wait was cut down to 35 mins. If you can, I recommend getting that card, you get your $25 back immediately as welcome rewards and another $25 on your birthday.

Some friends of ours tried to get in during their trip without an ADR. Three different nights, they were told it was a 2+ hour wait.

Thanks for the advice. I tried to book online and could only get 3:00 p.m. on Feb. 6th but thanks to your advice, I called and had no problem getting 5:00 p.m. for that date.

You could call and ask. I happened to sign up during my bithday month so I'm not sure. I know they will let you extend your birthday rewards, they're supposed to expire on the 15th of the month following your birthday but I called and they gave me an extra few weeks. Wouldn't hurt to ask.

No they do not. I put in the right date but wrong month and it was fine. This card is a great deal

Will they give you the 10% DVC member discount and let you use the $50 in rewards?
