Have you called them? They don't release many covers for online booking.

We were able to walk up for lunch on our last trip. Definitely try calling and expand your times to include lunch, we walked in right around noon and it wasn't nearly as crowded as when we passed by during the dinnertime hours.

I would call them but not through Disney. Believe the number is on the Disney forum. Last year we just walked up and were seated but that was early afternoon. We had our 4 year old grandson with us and he loved it so I called and got another reservation for the next day before we left. Have fun!

Agreed, you should be able to get a table on the day as long as a) you don't leave it too late in the day and b) you are flexible with your times. You may have to go away for an hour or so but there's plenty of shops nearby to keep the kids busy. Last time we went we had a drink at the TRex bar. There's a booking table at the entrance. Rainforest Cafe is another option and is pretty much the same menu.

Plan B when Disney dining says booked is call directly for a reservation or simply turn up, put your name in and wait.

We walked up last July and got a table for the four of us straight away. It was lunch admittedly. Well worth trying that.

I had a booking but there were quite a few people on "stand-by" and they were all seated within 30mins. If your set on it, then try on the day like everyone says - you will more than likely get a table.

Hiya Bhlkin~~~~~~I'd agree about calling them or walking up as well.You just never know whan a table could be available. I've had a lot of walk up meals,both solo and with my sister. (Granted,it was Jan,Feb,or early March,but I really have a done a LOT of walk ups).

Have you looked at the Rain forest Cafe as well? It's a similar experience,IMHO,and one the kids will like. No dinosaurs,but they have have animals,and thunder showers,and the food is nice. (Wicked cocktails and nice fresh non alcoholic fruit drinks for the kids). It's a really fun atmosphere. There's one is Downtown Disney,and another right outside the gate of Disney's Animal Kingdom.

good luck!!! :+))

Ps..I'm editing,as I just typed "dinosauts"..LOL LOL (dinosaurs that go into outer space)..tee hee hee;+>
