    Hi Nicole!
    I am so excited that you will taking your first trip to Walt Disney World! The Deluxe Dining Plan is fantastic.  You are able to make Advanced Dining Reservations 180 days prior to your vacation, and I would encourage you to do so.  The Deluxe Dining plan allows you to have three meals and two snacks a day, but you don't need to use all of them on that day.   I usually will decide on what theme parks I am going to for each day based on when Extra Magic Hours are so I can maximize the time at the parks.  Then I pick a restaurant or two for that day.  I would recommend making reservations at some of the Signature Restaurants that require two table service meals.  My favorite ones at Epcot are Le Cellier Steakhouse in Canada and Bistro de Paris at Paris. At the Magic Kingdom, Fairytale Dining at Cinderella's Royal Table is wonderful, and you can see the insider of the castle!  My favorite dinner show is the Hoop-Dee-Do Musical Revue at Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.  This show is hilarious, and the food is delicious.  A new restaurant added to the Dining Plan is Fulton's Crab House at Downtown Disney.  If you love seafood, this is a must to eat at.  Transportation is easy via the buses available at every resort.  If you want to go to one of the other resort restaurants, you can take a bus to Downtown Disney or any of the theme parks.  It is fantastic that you will be able to try many restaurants on your trip.  Send me a follow up question for any other information that you have, Nicole, and have a magical first trip to Walt Disney World!
