    My In-Laws booked our family vacation. I am just now reading about reservations to Table Service Restaurants. We are leaving for Disney in 10 days!!! Is it too late to make reservations and how do you decide where you are going to eat in advance?

    Hi Lori,

    You're probably packed and ready to go, but I had to try and catch you before you leave to give you a little reassurance regarding your dining options.

    September is one of our favorite times to visit, the low crowds and warm weather have always made it an ideal time for my family to visit.  I'm assuming that you do not have any dining reservations, and that is okay!  We often do the same, because I don't know what I want for dinner tonight....let alone what I'll want weeks from now.  So we play it by ear, and September is the perfect opportunity to do this.

    Once you arrive and have a feel for how your days are playing out, simply call the dining line from any "house" phone on property (at your resort or in the parks), or stop by guest relations in any of the parks.  A friendly cast member will be able to help you locate what dining locations could accommodate you for the time/park you are looking for.  I have always had very good luck doing this in September.  They are experts in finding the right cuisine for your family, so even if you are unsure as to the restaurant options, they will be able to help!

    Have a great vacation!
