    We have gone to Disney 4 times during the beginning of Dec. We have never been to Disney when there is free dining plan. Is it always so difficult to get reservations for table service, esp. for Character Meals during free dining times?

    Hi Steven - as you've experienced, during the free dining plan promotion, it can be difficult to get reservations for table service meals.  I really recommend that those who are traveling during the promotion times call for advance dining reservations as soon as possible so that they can get the times and locations they prefer.

    If you are having difficulty making reservations, I'd suggest that you keep trying.  In addition, you can check with your resort concierge or guest services when you arrive at the park.  Often reservations open up as guests decide to cancel some of the extra reservations they've made.

    Good luck and have a great vacation!
