    We are coming in Novemer 2 adults, 2 children (11) (9) I like this site but am overwhelmed in trying to plan meals. We have the dining plan. Do you recommend that I have a reservation for every meal or only specific ones?

    Christine planning a Walt Disney World vacation can be so overwhelming. I find printing a blank calendar for the dates we will be visiting to help. Fill in Extra Magic Hours, reservations, special events, and your park days to help you with your itinerary.

    For your table service meals you will need reservations. With the Disney Dining Plan this typically means you need to book one meal for each day. Book any character meals, signature dining restaurants, and dinner shows first as these tend to fill up the quickest.

    Sometimes you will pick your park day based on a restaurant reservation and other times you will make a restaurant reservation based on a park. On our last trip we really wanted to eat at Le Cellier so we planned our Epcot day around when we could get a spot at this steak house in the Canada pavilion. For an upcoming trip we made a reservation for a table service meal in Disney's Hollywood Studios based on the day we wanted to attend a Star Wars Weekend.

    When you are ready to book one or more of your meals call (407) 939-3463 or click on Dining and Reservations.

    Please contact me with any additional questions you have. I am here to help you create a magical vacation for your family!
