Using The Walk-up Wait List Feature On MyDisneyExperience

Regular Guest Author JoAnnC was recently in Walt Disney World and did a little research for us trying the new Disney Dining Walk-up Wait List feature on the MyDisneyExperience App. Read on to see how the new feature went for her and what you can expect when using it on your next Disney trip.

While at Walt Disney World this trip, I wanted to try the new Walk-up Wait List feature on the MyDisneyExperience App. I had a relaxing morning before getting on the Skyliner from Pop Century to Epcot. I decided to try it at Beaches & Cream for lunch but there were no reservations available.

Once I got closer to the restaurant, I pulled up Beaches & Cream to start the process. First it asks how many are in your party and party mix (number of adults and children). It gives you an approximate wait time. My wait time was 5 minutes.

Then it asks a series of questions for accommodations and celebrations. You click Skip to bypass each question if they do not pertain to you.

It couldn't have been easier. I received the text and push notification from the app once my table was ready.

I was given a card with the QR code to pull up the menu.

This was the first I've eaten here since the refurbishment. I like what they did with the space.

For those needing to charge your phones, they have outlets next to the tables. I saw three from where I was sitting.

I really like this feature. I would use it again in the future.
Do you think you'll be giving it a try on your next Disney trip?

YAY! Great article. We never got to use this since we were all set for the trip but it will be a great option on future trips.

It's nice that you can indicate a special occasion or dietary requirements.

Right MB?! I thought that was fantastic too. It's really helpful that they included those options as well as any mobility concerns.

Thanks for this! I've been keeping an eye out trying to snag a reservation at Beaches & Cream for our arrival day in June. I've never seen the wait list showing "at capacity" on the app so this gives me hope we can get in though this option if no reservations open up.
