    Hubby said YES to 12/13-18 WDW trip! You helped us plan our Oct'10 trip. Last year we had all our ADRs set and ended up too in the moment to use them all. We have dining plan for this trip; don't mind which place we end up eating. Mistake to make 0 ADRs?

    Hi Erin!

    Sounds like you married a GREAT guy!  I would suggest that if you do have the Disney Dining Plan (DDP) that you at least schedule a few reservations for special meals.  The crowd levels should be rather low in your first few days of your trip, but as you approach December 25, you'll notice the levels rise (and your dining options decrease).  If you've paid out of pocket for the plan, I would make sure to get your money's worth, but if you're not concerned, they by all means, wing it!  Once you get there you should be able to make some dining reservations very easily within the first few days as long as you don't have your heart set on something specific, and remain flexible. 

    Have a magical vacation!
