    This is our first time going to Disney! I was wondering if you suggest we make dinner reservations for every night in advance or would it be okay to make reservations same day? We have planned a character breakfast but that is all we have planned so far.

    Yeah! Your first visit to see Mickey! Be prepared to have a blast zooming down Space Mountain, eating Mickey ice cream, and meeting Disney princesses.

    Breakfast, lunch, or dinner reservations for table service restaurants are definitely best made in advance. Same day reservations are exceedingly difficult to obtain at popular spots and even quieter eateries might only have an inconvenient time such as 3:15 available. Quick service restaurants never require reservations; just pop in, head to the counter, and order.

    Would you like a few restaurant recommendations? Just contact me with your children's ages, parks you will be visiting, if you are considering a meal at Downtown Disney or at a resort, and if you have a Disney Dining Plan. I would so enjoy helping you plan some memorable meals.
