    Hi Ashley,

    It's always good to have dining reservations secured in advance.  Sometimes just taking the time to relax for a meal in a restaurant is a great way to recharge your batteries and help you enjoy the rest of the day or evening.

    If you find yourself at a different park than where you thought you'd be and need to cancel a reservation, no problem.  You can do that at guest relations in any of the parks.  Likewise, they can help you make alternate reservations.

    There are some restaurants that you can get into without reservations, depending on cancellations, park crowds and the size of your party.  Obviously, it's usually easier for a party of 2 to be seated at a restaurant than a party of 5, but it never hurts to ask.  There are also a lot of great quick service restaurants that serve more than just burgers and fries.  Sometimes if it looks like we'll miss a reservation, we call and cancel and then just eat at a counter service restaurant for the evening.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
