    Wer're arriving Jan 9 for 6 nights. My DH birthday is Jan 10 and gets a kick out of Chef Mickey's.
    I planned the adrs sp poorly that there isn't anything available the whole time.

    Anyone have luck gettiing a ADR at last minute?

    We have had very good luck with Chef Mickey's at the last minute, but usually it's around 4:30 we go to the podium and about a 45 minute wait.

    NOT through traditional ADR - just walk up.
    GOOD LUCK!

    I got a Chef Mickey 2 nights before our trip in Sept. ( keep checking!!).

    if you try the walk up approach.. go early... groups were trying in Sept at 6pm and were all turned away.

    Yes - keep checking! Check the 24 hours before (when ppl have to cancel) and day of - just keep checking. So far I've always been able to get something that fits, even last minute.

    My DD and DS went to Chef Mickey's over Thanksgiving break and just walked in...about a 20 minute wait. DH and myslef went to Trails End and just walked in. We have also done that at Easter break too. Try and walk up, it might just work out. Good Luck!

    As others have said, keep checking as people cancel all the time and something could pop up.

    if you are ever going to have ANY luck with that, it's now. No shot in spring or summer, but January- you got a great chance. I'd call them and ask what their "off time" is and show up for an attempted walk in. worse case, stroll over to the wave, I'm sure you'd be able to get in there

    Thanks everyone! We like to eat early so walking up at 4:30 may work.
    They did have 9:30 available but there's no way we eat that late!
