    We have been advised to book meal reservations. We have the quick service meal plan and from the website only certain restaurants are allowing reservations and they don't take our plan. How do you book reservations at restaurants that use our plan?

    Hi Shelley,

    One of my first tips to friends is always to try and book their dining reservations as soon as possible. The spots fill quickly especially for the most popular locations and dining times. Depending on how soon you are traveling, or if you are there during a peak travel period, you may find a number of locations are completely booked.

    No worries though, it sounds like you will be doing the majority of your dining at counter service locations, based on the dining plan you purchased. These locations do not take reservations and are available on a walk up basis. While you will find these locations quite crowded during the most popular dining hours, you will have no problem being able to dine.

    If you are looking to make a few table service reservations, you may need to select alternative locations or eat at less popular times, You can also stop at the hostess stand of the restaraunt to check for any cancellations or no shows. Good luck and happy dining!
