    Great info here! thanks in advance! I've been reading a lot about ADRs ( I even figured out what it means!) Do we need them? We are going 7/31 - 8/5. We didn't want to be locked into reservations every night, but don't want to wait hours either. thanks!

    Hi Shannon!

    That's always a tough one to answer...I think the best approach is to make some reservations (if you are the type that doesn't like to be 'locked in')...for those places you KNOW you want to experience, and then let the chips fall as they may.  If you are going during a period that offers the free dining promotion, then I would say that dining reservations are an absolute necessity, because things book up so quickly! 

    Even with a family that includes 3 (unpredictable) little ones, I always book all our dining in advance, and it's never been a problem for us, but we generally plan our park days around where we'll be dining for the day.

    Have a magical vacation!
