    My family of three will be visiting Disney World in October. My daughter is 12. I’m having difficulty finding/navigating the website to make reservations for dining and for special activities. We have park passes to Magic, Epicot,Animal & Hollywood.

    Hi Mary,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    It is time! We have to get some plans solidified for your family! It sounds like you have already booked Disney Park Pass system reservations. If so, that is excellent! Be sure to check the theme park reservation availability calendar before you try to change any park pass reservations. To change, you would need to cancel an existing park pass reservation and then make new ones.

    I am so glad to hear that you are planning to make advanced dining reservations! Just go to the list of dining locations that accept reservations and enter the day, time, and number of people in your party. The dining reservation restaurant list is linked from the home page underneath the tab that says Things to Do. If you know which restaurants you wish to visit, you can also just use the search feature to find those specific web pages and search from there. Be Our Guest Restaurant is one of our favorite dining experiences. On their home page, you can View Menu. Check the lunch and dinner menus for food selections and pricing. You can also Check Availability.

    To add some extra magic to your trip review the Enchanting Extras for special activities. Also consider the Private VIP Tours if you want to splurge. If you want something a little more budget-friendly, try a visit to Disney Springs and just enjoy the sights and sounds. I suggest that you consider Memory Maker - Advanced Purchase. If you add Memory Maker, I would suggest that you visit the Disney PhotoPass® Studio at Disney Springs. On our trip in July we got some really cute photo surprises. 

    Mary, I have to suggest a few of our other favorite dining spots! For breakfast, try Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera. The characters' artistic flare is super cute. We also love celebrating special occasions at California Grill atop Disney's Contemporary Resort. So, make those dining reservations and book an Enchanting Extra or two. Almost forgot, be sure to have a My Disney Experience account. With it, you can track your plans!

    Magic and memories,
