What Table Service Restaurants have you been able to walk into with-out Reservations

Im curious as I make reservations all the time however so far only one I seemed to need was Le Cellier. I have walked in at Kona/Wave and Sanna without them.

We were technically able to walk into Sci-Fi in June. DH asked, they said we could be seated at a regular table, then we realized we had FPs to use, so we did that instead.

We tried at Via Napoli the same trip and were turned away, the hostess said they were too short staffed to have the patio tables open, where they usually put walk ups.

Well I can definitely say that most places we've made ADRs for, we've NEEDED them. ( rarely got to just walk in ).

There was one year where DW an I left the kids at home and had our own little trip. We figure we were just two so walked up to Crystal Palace. She told us right out there was no way without an ADR.

So we went and sat down to discuss where we would eat. DW really didn't feel like fast food/CS. While we were talking, the hostess came out, and asked us "Would you guys like to eat?" ... blinkingly... we said yes and got a table for two...


So I guess that doesn't exactly help with what you're looking for ... we did get a walk up... but it was out of the ordinary.

We just got back. We were able to do Kona and Sanaa for lunch, and BOG and Maya Grill for dinner all without reservations.

Ironically, we got turned away at Kona, but got a walk up at 'Ohana's for breakfast one November. We have also walked up to Chef Mickey's.

As an AP holder, I go to WDW several times a year and most trips have had really good luck walking up to restaurants at lunch or just as they oepn for dinner. However, I never go during busy times of the year. Just this last May we walked into Yak & Yeti, Mama Melrose, Biergarten, and Liberty Tavern for lunch.

I just checked the menus over on AllEars to see the list of restaurants and realized that on different trips I have walked into most WDW restaurants. Granted we are always a party of 1-3, so that makes it easier. Restaurants we have walked into in the last few years include: Yak & Yeti, Rainforest Cafe, 50's Prime Time, Brown Derby, Mama Melrose, Sci Fi, Coral Reef, Biergarten, Chef's de France, Le Cellier (lunch only), Nine Dragons, Marrakesh, Rose & Crown (lunch only), Tokyo Dining, Tutto Italia, Via Napoli, Liberty Tree Tavern (lunch only), Tony's, Plaza, Boma, Sanaa, Big River Grill, Flying Fish, Kouzzina, Shutters, Olivias, The Wave, Maya Grill, Boatwrights, Turf Club, Garden Grove, Artist Point, Kona, Cap'n Jack's, Fulton's (back before it started taking the DDP), T Rex, Planet Hollywood, Raglan Road, Bongos, Wolfgang Puck Cafe, and House of Blues.
