    Hi Sherri.

    Congratulations on your family's First Trip to Walt Disney World! You're going to enjoy such a magical experience together & create amazing memories!

    It is very wise of you to want to plan ahead for your Disney Dining Experiences. The Disney Dining Plan is only available for purchase as part of a Magic Your Way Package, booked in conjunction with a Walt Disney World Resort property stay and cannot be purchased separately.

    That being said, you are more than welcome to dine at any of the many, many quick service dining locations throughout the parks as well as reserved table service, character dining & dinner shows!

    Reservations do tend to fill quickly in advance, and it is highly recommended that if you wish to enjoy character dining or other table service dining experiences, you should reserve these as many as 180 days in advance by visiting the Online Dining Reservations page or by calling (407) WDW-DINE. Some reservations do require a credit card guarantee and have a 24 hour cancellation policy.

    Read about some of the most popular Character Dining options and Dinner Shows on these links provided.

    Please don't hesitate to visit again if you'd like further recommendations or have more dining questions.

    Wishing you a simply Magical time with your family at Walt Disney World Sherri!
