    My husband and I are taking our two boys (5 and 2) to our first trip to Disney! : ) We have the meal plan for our trip. Do we need to make reservations to the restaurants each night, and if so, how far in advance do we need to make them? Thanks!

    Hi Caroline! Thanks for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Panel! You really do need to make an Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR) for every Table Service restaurant you want to dine in. Walt Disney World has some fantastic places to dine and they fill up quickly. Reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance, and the most popular restaurants actually fill up close to that date! Reservations can be made online or by calling (407) WDW-DINE. Enjoy planning your magical vacation, and write back if you have any more questions!
