A tip* Eat outside if possible. The chairs inside make so much noise scraping against the floor, that it gives you a headache! Besides eating on the Boardwalk is more fun.[/QUOTE]
It’s 92 bloody degrees with 95% humidity!!!
You could try calling Big River directly for reservations. I seem to recall that
you can’t make reservations through WDW DINE, but that you can make them directly.
You might also do well with Captain’s Grille at the Yacht. They’re a less popular location, mostly because they compete with Cape May and Yachtsman’s Steakhouse.
Not sure how crowded it is, but you might be able to squeak into Biergarten.
Also, don’t forget that you can make reservations at any park’s Guest Services desk.
