    My family and I have booked a trip to WDW in mid June, we purchased the Deluxe DP, and have made reservations for our meals. My questions is should I keep the reservations or just let things happen on their own? I dont want to feel rushed just to eat.

    Hi James,

    You are very smart in making your dining reservations ahead of time, they are very hard to get, especially for only 3 months until your trip.  If it were me, I would definitely keep my reservations and when your are on vacation at Walt Disney World and feel like there is a day or two where you would rather not worry about your reservations and do something else, you can cancel at that time.  Just make sure about the cancelation policy for your particular dining experiences, most of them are 24 hours and are based on the "honor system" (which means there are no charges involved if you don't make it within that time frame...but is the nice thing to do for those other guests who may enjoy securing your seat for dining).  There are a few dining experiences that do require you to make your cancelation within 24 or 48 hours and you will be charged for them if you do not cancel within this time frame.  If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask us more or for your dining inquiries you may call (407)-WDW-DINE, and a cast member will be happy to answer any dining related questions you may have!

    Have a magical day!
