    Hello, We are booked in POR this September with the free dining plan, we are wondering if reservations are needed for all table service meals or is it possible to just walk in a get a table at most places? Thank you for your help

    Hi Robert!  Congratulations on being able to take advantage of the free Disney Dining Plan in September! It is one of Disney's most popular offers!  While it is sometimes possible to walk in to a Table Service location and get a seat, most of the time you will have a fairly lengthy wait, depending on the restaurant and time of day.  With the free Dining Plan offer, many, if not most guests, will also have the plan, and therefore I would strongly recommend making your Table Service reservations in advance.  I know this does take some of the spontaneity out of the vacation, but I do think that will lessen the frustration you may feel in not being able to get in to any of the Table Service locations you want - especially in the theme parks.

    Just visit the online site for Disney Dining Reservations and you can start to browse your options and even make you reservations online.  

    Please let me know Robert, if there's anything else I can help answer for you before your Walt Disney World vacation - it would be my pleasure to help!
