    Hi! 2 college girlfriends hoping for 4 day long wkend reunion in DW in Nov. Can't make reservations until summer - will that be 2 late to get a rm at Pop & din plan? Quik service dining is ok with us to maximize time w/ 1 table service if possible-th

    Hi there, Anne!

    A reunion with your college friends is always something to treasure, and having it at Walt Disney World will only enhance the experience!

    While historical data about Disney attendance is readily available (check out, an unaffiliated fan site with great statistical resources!), it's hard to predict, sometimes, how Guests will space out over the various Parks and Resort hotels.

    Regularly-priced dining plans simply do not sell out. If you are staying on Walt Disney World property, you will have the option to purchase any of the non-promotional Dining Plans. Sometimes, when a special package is released, however, Disney does reserve the right to limit the number sold, either by time or by date range. You ca find out the specifics on any of these plans by calling (407) WDW-DINE.

    You will want to move on your room as soon as it's feasible for you to do so. In order to hold a room, you will need to put down one night as a deposit, and you can use any major credit card to do so. November, depending on your travel dates, can either be reasonably quiet - at the beginning and very end of the month - or quite busy, as it is around Thanksgiving. My recommendation to you, then, is to lock in your room at your earliest convenience, knowing that you can always change the dates up to 5 days out with no penalty.

    Please let me know if I can be of any further help to you as you plan this wonderful weekend getaway!

    See you later, celebrator,
    -Deborah B.
