    We have booked lunch and dinner reservations for our stay in April. I am a little worried that we are "overbooked" for food and don't want miss out on rides, etc. but also don't want to be scrambling when kids are hungry. Any BTDT advice? Thanks!

    Hi Mary,

    I love hearing from fellow Bay Staters who are making their plans to escape from the cold!

    I recommend making reservations for one table service meal per day. I like to mix it up a little and do one or two late breakfasts (so we're not overly hungry for lunch) and then dinners for the rest of the reservations. It is really not fun to have hungry tired kids (and parents) who want to relax, but you can't get a walk-in seating. You can then plan to eat counter service for the rest of your meals. I really love the table service restaurants at Disney. They gives you the opportunity to relax in air conditioning and recap some of your favorite experiences from the day while enjoying delicious food.

    If you would like assistance narrowing down your Advanced Dining Reservation choices, simply send me a follow up question. I would be happy to help you select the best restaurants for your party. Be sure to include the ages of your kids and if they have any favorite characters.

    Have a wonderful vacation,
