    We are going to Disney in march and I was curious if we should make lunch reservations too or are there places to grab a quick lunch? What do you recommend?


    There are plenty of Quick Service (think something like a fast food place in your local neighborhood) and Table Service (full service) restaurants throughout Walt Disney World available for lunch and dinner.  So you can always grab something to eat at a Quick Service restaurant.

    However, if you would like to eat lunch or dinner in a Table Service restaurant then you should make an Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR).  ADRs can be made up to 180 days in advance.  Walt Disney World has some great places to eat and many of these restaurants book up very early. 

    Many years ago it used to be the case that you could easily walk up to most of the Table Service restaurants and eventually be seated, especially during lunch.  However, in my opinion, those days are long gone.  If you want to eat in a Table Service restaurant, you really do need to make an ADR.  The only exception to that is some of the Table Service restaurants in the resort hotels, especially for lunch.

    Have a magical vacation!
