    If I want to eat on the go in the magic kingdom, do I need a reservation at every eatery? Also, do I need a reservation at the pop century hotel for its restaurants

    Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho, it's off to Walt Disney World you go, Danielle! I'm happy to hEAR you're planning to return to the magic soon!

    While I love counting down the days until I can make my dining reservations (Guests may now make dining reservations online up to 60 days in advance), there's something to be said about a little spontaneity. You can never predict when a craving for the Grey Stuff is going to strike! As of the time of this writing, Guests must have valid park admission and a reservation for park entry through the new Disney Park Pass system—as well as a dining reservation—to dine at in-park, table-service restaurants. However, I highly recommend utilizing your My Disney Experience mobile app to check for last-minute reservations. Simply tap the circled plus sign at the bottom of your screen and click on "Check Dining Availablity." I just did this myself, and several times popped up for lunch today in popular Magic Kingdom Park locations such as Be Our Guest Restaurant. No reservation is needed at any of Walt Disney World Resort's counter service restaurants; however, guests are being asked to utilize the Mobile Order Service through the mobile app. Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog and the Dining: Know Before You Go page for the most up to date information. I learn something new every day!

    I'm sure you're getting excited about your stay at Disney's Pop Century Resort! While no reservation is needed at the Everything POP Shopping & Dining, this food court is currently exclusively utilizing the Mobile Order Service, just like the theme parks' counter service locations. After placing your order, you'll receive a push notification when your food is ready, and you will be assigned a station for pickup. Meals are bagged up to go with receipts and stickers on them, but you can sit inside if you wish. Also, the refillable drink stations are being serviced by Cast Members due to increased health and safety measures

    Thanks for visiting planDisney, Danielle! We wish you a safe and magical trip!
