    Have the DP and are staying at OKW, Apr 26 - May3. Having trouble making reservations so far in do you choose? Could we get by only making some adr's and leaving the others for when we are there? DD (8) has no interest in character meals.

    Hi Pamela - I would recommend that you try to make as many advance dining reservations as possible.  The table service restaurants do tend to be busy, and it can be difficult to eat at your selected time without reservations.

    However, if you don't have advance dining reservations, you can visit the resort concierge when you arrive and make reservations at that time.  We've had luck doing that also, and while we may not get our exact first choice, we have been able to still eat some great meals.  You can also visit guest services at the parks.

    As for choosing, I'd suggest that you check out the menus as (click on dining at the top of the page), and also look at some reviews (I love the Passporter, available at bookstores and Amazon).  You can also ask the Moms Panel for any suggestions - just give us a general idea of what types of food your family enjoys!

    Have a great vacation!
