Are you a go-with-the-flow type of vacationer? Does the thought of having set reservations frustrate you? You can enjoy Disney without having a single Table-Service dining reservation! Here’s how:
1. Enjoy all the Quick-Service restaurants and use Mobile Ordering. Disney World® has over 200 Quick-Service restaurants to choose from throughout its theme parks and resorts. Its easy to grab a meal or snack no matter where you are! Quick-service restaurants do not require reservations. The best way to get your meal is to Mobile Order. You can plan your meal choices from anywhere. When you are near the restaurant select the button in the Disney World® app to prep your meal, and be notified when its ready. No waiting in line necessary, just find a seat.
2. Snack your way through the day! Sometimes its easier to snack around the theme parks than to take the time to have a sit-down meal. Disney World® is known for its popular snacks (hello . . .Dole Whip, Turkey Leg, Popcorn, Croissant Donut, just to name a few). Many of the popular snacks can also be Mobile Ordered just like at the Quick-Service restaurants. Also, watch for limited time seasonal snacks that are offered.
Heading to Epcot® during one of its festivals? Many of the amazing food offerings can be shared and sampled — a great way to have a meal and try a little bit of everything — no reservation needed.
3. Find a last minute opening. Its almost dinner time and everyone would like to sit down for a bit. Never fear, you can search for last minute openings in your Disney World® app. Some restaurants are now offering waitlists where they will notify you when a table is ready. Rainy day? Check the app, as many dinners choose to cancel instead of playing through the rain. **Please note this is not as easy to do during peak travel times such as major holidays, but can be done just about any other time as long as you are flexible.
4. Check Open Table. Many of the popular restaurants in Disney Springs® are also found on Open Table.
