We tried to get a walk in there once when I couldn't get an adr, and they were full and not taking any walk ups. You might get lucky though, since we went back last month (with an adr), and I'm pretty sure they were taking some walk ups.

I think your best bet would be to keep checking for a reservation online or by phone. Via Napoli doesn't really accomodate walk-ups in our experience. Even if the restaurant is nearly empty, they won't take a walk-up. I've had to really make a fuss to get a table once, telling the host at the podium and eventually the manager that there was no way to make an ADR with less than an hour window and that if they would have allowed me to make an ADR on the phone I would have. The restaurant was so empty too.

Best of luck, keep checking online, someone might cancel. Or maybe call the dining number and tell them it's your anniversary, maybe they can help.

If you go early(like when they open) you should be able to get in. We had ADR Christmas week and loved it so much my DD wanted to go again. The 2 of us got there the next day when they opened and we got a table right a way. Hope this helps.

I wouldn't count on a walk-in. We've been lucky in the past but we've also been turned away - and we usually go during the off season. During April you'll be in one of the high periods so I really doubt you'll have any luck getting in without an ADR.

We have never had a problem as a walk in. We did have to wait 10-20min every time, but we still got in! Good luck either way.

We usually have an ADR there but there have been times we've showed up an hour or so before our ADR time to see if they can take us earlier. We've never been turned away, and we usually only had to wait about 10 minutes. So yes, its quite possible to eat at Via Napoli without an ADR. It also depends on who has had ADR's that haven't shown up to them, as to how many tables might be left over. Good luck!

I've walked in several times but not without a wait. Most likely you will have to wait but if you are good with waiting, and you want to go early, there's a possibility.

Last year, we stopped at Epcot Guest Services and they were able to get us a reservation for an hour from when we walked in. I think that if you show up at the restaurant a bit earlier...4:30 to 4:45, there shouldn't be a problem.

As stated by others, it will depend on availability. If there are no open ADR's then I wouldn't plan on being able to walk-in. I have been successful a couple of times in the past in stopping in for a early dinner when in Orlando for business.

When I was there in early March they had a walk-up line set up outside. It was quite long and I think I heard the wait was at least an hour, but they were taking people's names.
