As you may know, nabbing dining reservations at Walt Disney World table service restaurants often takes a lot of planning, patience, and luck. However, as we also know, things are pretty different in the parks right now!
Recently, Disney World added a new option for guests wanting to dine at select table restaurants: the mobile dine walk-up waitlist. And the good news is that Disney keeps adding this option to more restaurants!
This new feature allows guests to add their name to a virtual waitlist for select Disney World restaurants. Therefore, you don’t need a reservation! You can learn how to use the new feature here.
New locations have been added to this feature frequently, and we are very happy to report that four restaurants at Hollywood Studios have recently been added to the mobile dine walk-up waitlist service. This includes 50’s Prime Time Cafe, that place where we go when we want some classic old-fashioned Mom-style food (and attitude). Nabbing one of those coveted seats in front of the TV has never been easier!
The Hollywood Brown Derby is also getting the mobile dine walk-up waitlist treatment. Now guests who want to dine in Golden Age Hollywood have a better shot at getting a seat to enjoy that amazing Grapefruit Cake! Trust us: there’s a reason that cake has been on the restaurant’s menu for so long: it’s a must!
Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano can be a great place to nom on some spaghetti and meatballs and other Italian-inspired goodies. It also now offers the mobile dine walk-up waitlist option, so getting a table just became a bit easier.
Who doesn’t love combining eating with an old-fashioned drive-in theater experience? This is what makes the Sci-Fi Dine-In Restaurant so fun (it’s all about the atmosphere!), and now it’s even easier to grab a seat in one of its cars, thanks to the mobile dine walk-up waitlist.
Let’s face it: Oga’s Cantina in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is still a tricky reservation to get. This is probably the highest-profile restaurant at Hollywood Studios right now, which makes sense because it is literally like stepping into a cantina from the Star Wars universe, which makes it pretty awesome. This is where you go to sip on some out-of-this galaxy concoctions: we especially love the Fuzzy Tauntaun, because it makes our mouth all tingly. But it may be a little easier now that it’s been added to the Mobile Dine Waitlist.
To get yourself on the waitlist for these restaurants, log in to the My Disney Experience app, and select “Check Dining Availability.” For walk-ups, select today’s date, choose “Now” when searching for the time. You will then get to see what’s available. You can select the restaurant from there (make sure you’re nearby) and get yourself on the waitlist!
We love how super-easy and convenient the mobile order dine waitlist feature is. It also gives guests even more of a chance to get in at some of the most popular restaurants at Walt Disney World.
