    We booked port Orleans riverside royal room from aug 26 till sep 3. This is our first time ever. We had the package with the free dining and are totally lost of how to book the dining or have a daily itinerary. We are 2 families with young children. Help??

    Hi, Soha!  Dining reservations can sometimes throw people off their planning a bit, but it's not that difficult!  To start narrowing down restaurants, you might want to visit to see the menus and what restaurants are in which theme parks and hotels.  You'll be able to see which ones are character dining experiences and which meals are buffets.

    Once you have narrowed down which dining experiences you'd like to enjoy, you can head over to Disney World Dining and book your dining reservations.  You can book beginning 180 days in advance, and the most popular restaurants tend to fill quickly.  If you want to try places like Cinderella's Royal Table in the castle or Chef Mickey's in the Contemporary, you'll want to book those first.

    Have a wonderful vacation, and rest assured we're here to get you through with as little stress as possible!
