    Does the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival affect dinner reservations in other Parks? I'm sure Epcot reservations fill up quickly but I'm wondering if other park and hotel dinner locations will be easier to get into.

    Hi Morris,

    You will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during my favorite time of year; Epcot Food and Wine Festival.  Typically, late September through early November is a less busy time of year for vacationers.  In order to know whether or not dinner locations are easier to obtain outside of Epcot, you may want to reference a crowd calendar at I checked for you and during the week of October 11, crowd estimates are at a six or seven.  On a scale of 1-10, we're a little high for this week, but not too bad. Columbus Day is October 12 so this week is a bit busier than others.  My suggestion would be to book your preferred dinner reservations as soon as you hit the 180 day mark so you can dine where you'd like. You can book online, through the My Disney Experience app or by calling 407-WDW-DINE.   

    It was a pleasure answering your question today.  Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel.  

    Be Magical,

    Leanne T.
