BREAKING: Select Restaurant Walk Up Lists Now Available
As of this morning, select restaurant Walk Up Lists are now showing on the My Disney Experience app. Up until now, table service restaurants were required to have Advance Dining Reservations, but we are now seeing there may be a new change to the process!
Browsing the app this morning we came across a handful of locations that appear to be offering “walk up” availability. When browsing restaurants rather than selecting Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch or Dinner there is a new option for “Now”.
Walk-Up List Locations
After selecting the “Now” option, we saw the following table service locations listed as having Walk Up Lists:
- Kona Cafe located at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
- Sanaa located at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas in Kidani Village
- Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera located at Disney’s Riviera Resort
- Whispering Canyon Cafe located at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
What Does This Mean?
The restaurants that populated under availability for “Now” all had the same message:
“Walk-up list is currently unavailable to join due to high demand.”
While this may be the case, it is also possible that the lists have not been made available quite yet but Disney is preparing the My Disney Experience app to have the capability to schedule this new type of reservation.
What else could this mean? Over the past couple of weeks as Walt Disney World Resort has moved through reopening, we have seen more guests entering the parks and returning to the magic!
The safety measures that Disney has implemented have left most everyone feeling extremely safe and happy to return. As Disney sees guests are comfortable returning, we will likely begin to see the reopening process continue. In addition to the restaurant’s Walk Up Lists, we may begin to see hours extended at shops and restaurants, closed resorts and restaurants reopen, and much more!
And while we know it will take some time, we see this as a sign that things will begin moving in the direction we are all waiting for – a full return to the magic!
