I have never tried for walkups, but have seen them accepted at only a couple restaurants we have been waiting for our ADRs at.

Boma- Breakfast
Raglan Road- Lunch/Dinner 1hr+ wait
Via Napoli- Dinner 30 min wait
Flying Fish- Dinner (but they stopped taking walkins by the time we left)

The Plaza in Magic Kingdom

Ohana for breakfast. Apparently I thought I had an ADR, but I didn't. They squeezed us in, no problems.

We usually have adr's. i'll even use the app or the website to make same day adr's. never had a problem. As for walk ups last trip we walked up to Maya Grill. We are a party of 2 so that has made it easier. Next trip we'll be a party of 3!

Captain's Grille. But the food and service was horrible, so we quickly found out why it was so easy to get in.

In 2005 we walked up to Chef's de france for dinner (had about a 20 minute wait) and Rainforest by the AK for breakfast with no wait. That was a while ago though!

For this next trip we made some ADR's and plan on making same day reservations for others. We'll check the App or guest services to see what's available and go with the flow. We are good leaving where ever we are though and going somewhere else to eat and there's only us two non-picky eaters.

We did make ADR's for the restaurants we really want to try and there are a few we are looking to avoid based on consistently bad reviews.

I've only tried once and was seated immediately at Grand Floridian Cafe, and this was in the middle of July. You have a better chance at a resort restaurant without characters or a buffet. The smaller your party, the bigger your chance too.

We walked up to Chefs de France in January for dinner and got a table in about 15 minutes. We are only a party of 2 though, so that may have made it easier.

I went to WDW in 2012 for 3 vacations; 2 of which were 4th of July week and Christmas/New Years week. I do not like planning ahead.

I did walkups during these 2 weeks at Citricos, Narcoosees, Sanaa, GF Afternoon Tea, Marrakesh, Kouzzina, Il Mulino, bluezoo, Brown Derby.

During non peak vacations, I have done walkups to many restaurants. I only do one table service a day and I usually try for lunch around 2pm or dinner at 8-9pm. These are always for a party of 2 or 3. I do make ADRs for character breakfasts and V&A but prefer to fly by the seat of my pants on the others.

We go in February and NEVER make ADR's . We walk into rosé and crown, meerakesh , Ragland road, captain jacks and a few others. We may have waited like 10 mins or so but that was it. We don't like to plan it out that way we can just go and eat when and were we want.
