    Heading to WDW for a first visit 4/25-5/01, have DDP and many ADR's. Is it foolish to expect to eat lunch and dinner at TSR's in the same day. I also have planned some breakfast, dinner combos with a QS in between. Is thia a better idea?

    Hi Tim, enjoying Disney Dining is one of our favorite parts of our WDW vacations!

    Disney restaurants serve exquisite meals and it would be a shame to be too full from lunch to really enjoy your dinner. We purchase the DDP on every trip, and in our experience, we've found it better to have a Table Service breakfast and dinner...with a Quick Service lunch in between. Due to amount of food you receive with each meal, you may find that you don't even need a QS lunch! In fact, we often book our breakfasts for 10 a.m. or so (more like a brunch) and then dinner around 5. On those days, we've found that a mid-day snack is often all we need to tie us over. Of course, a big factor in this will be what time you've made your reservations for. If it's an early lunch and a late dinner, you would probably still be fine with what your have reserved. You can use your snack credits to a grab muffin at your resort in the morning to hold you over until your early lunch. In the event that we end up not needing a QS lunch, we've saved those credits for our departure day, and gotten take-out food at the resort for the ride to the airport.
    It sounds like you are well on your way to planning a magical vacation for your family. If you have any other questions, we'd love to help. Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel and have a Happy New Year!
