    I have 29 days left till visiting WDW I have a 6y and 2y and available dinner times in MK are either around 4 or late at 8pm.These times don't work. Do I have to book for dinner and how what can I do to make a booking?

    Hi, Pauline!

    I am sorry you are not finding dining times that work with your schedule.  Here are a few options for you:

    -Quick Service locations do NOT require a reservation, so feel free to dine whenever you like. There are numerous options to choose from in the Magic Kingdom, including Pinocchio's Village Haus which overlooks the entrance to it's a small world (always a hit with the little ones!)

    -Keep trying for a reservation, even the day prior to your Magic Kingdom day. Since guests must cancel unused reservations or get charged a penalty, you will see some last minute cancellations (but have a back-up plan in case you do not secure a table).

    -Book a dining location at a resort just outside of the Magic Kingdom. Accessible via monorail are 3 amazing resorts: the Contemporary Resort, Polynesian Village Resort, and the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. All have multiple dining options with table service.

    Hopefully you will find one of these options will allow you to find a happy solution to your dining issues for your Magic Kingdom day.  If you can just wiggle a bit with times or dining locations, you should be able to find a lovely meal to enjoy with your family!

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
