The background…I’ve tried to get a Tutto Italia reservation going on four years now. In all that time the only available reservation I’ve ever seen for a party of two is 9:15 PM, regardless of how far out I check. We’re now coming up on what’s going to be our last WDW trip for a few years, so we decided to have a late meal at Tutto Italia just mark that restaurant off of our list.
In the last few weeks I’ve had some very good success snagging last-minute cancellations of some difficult to get reservations. So I decided to check and see if I could snag a better time for Tutto Italia. What I’m seeing is this. On the day I’m checking, there are dinner reservations available for parties of three or four at 6:30 PM and 8:30 PM. For parties of less than three or greater than four there is only 9:15 PM.
Question: What’s up with ADRs at Tutto Italia? This 9:15-only party of two phenomenon has been too consistent to be a glitch or an accident. Does anyone have any insight into how a party of two might be able to get a reservation at Tutto Italia before park close, or is there just something quirky about this restaurant that I’m not aware of? I tried doing a search on this forum on the internet at large, but did not find anything relevant to my particular question.
