    We booked our trip in July for travel 9/22-9/28, & did not realize that ADR should have been made for all table service restaurants. We are traveling with a 2yr old and wondering how long waits are w/out ADR and whether we should stick to counter only?

    Hello Karen!  Yes, you are traveling during the midst of the ever so popular free dining promotion!   Most of the popular times for restaurants have been booked solid for almost 90 days.  You are always welcome to stop by a restaurant to see if you can be seated but chances are you will be told they are sold out.  However, people do cancel for one reason or another so it doesn't hurt to check if there is a restaurant you really want to dine at.

    In the meantime, you can also check availability online ( or call 407-WDW-DINE.  And if all else fails, you can always count on the ample counter service locations that are available throughout Disney.

    Good luck!  Diane
