Walt Disney World Dining for Rookies – 8 Things You Simply Must Know

2. Check dining reservations 24 hours before you want to eat

Disney World restaurants allow you to cancel your reservation up to 24 hours before the reservation time, and people are always cancelling their reservations. If you didn’t get a particular reservation, it’s really worth checking 24 hours before to see if any have popped up. My parents have gotten Be Our Guest reservations that way multiple times! I would even start checking a few days before as some people try to not wait until the last minute.
