    Help! booking ADR with magic your way plus dining, 5 and 2 year old girls, do I need to book every meal? Will restaurants have a long wait if not. SO far i booked pooh -Crystal /Magic kingdom - Princess lunch in Epcot/Norway. Do you plan rides around?

    Yo, Meggan! It's a sweet move to place as many advance dining reservations as possible for the restaurants where you're planning to dine. If you don't, it's less about a restaurant having a long wait and more about the restaurant just not having any availability.

    The best way to get the most value and mileage out of your dining plan is to hit all the restaurants that you want rather than not getting a chance to dine at your top choices.

    As far as fitting in attractions around your dining reservations, we like to do early morning breakfasts, late lunches or early dinners. Why? Check this out:

    The early morning breakfasts will often get you into a park before it opens so that when you're finished dining, your distance to your first attraction is that much shorter. We like late lunches and early dinners because that is a time when the parks are still a little crowded. By getting some grub, we're able to be fueled for the night ahead when crowds start petering out.
