    Making our dining reservations for October. We might have a dinner with some family that lives in the area. At Disneyland we don’t need to put in names. But we do at DW? If they switch which of their kids come to the dinner do we have to switch names?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel William, I’m so happy to hEAR from you again! 

    Hakuna Matata, dining reservations at Walt Disney World Resort are simple! There’s no need to worry about the names of each Mouseketeer attending the dining reservation. If the Mouseketeers do end up switching last minute, it is perfectly fine! Just be sure to have the correct number of Guests listed on the reservation so that your party can enjoy the reserved dining experience! 

    If you’re looking for some recommendations, I loved breakfast at Topolino’s Terrace-Flavors of the Riviera. Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends includes a bird’s eye view and all of my favorite Pals dressed in their best outfits that are unique to Topolino’s Terrace. Lunch, at Be Our Guest Restaurant, is a perfect midday break from the heat. Enjoy a Regal Lunch inside of Beast’s Castle where you can choose to dine inside of The Grand Ballroom, The West Wing, or The Castle Gallery. Plus, breakfast and lunch at Be Our Guest Restaurant is a Quick-Service meal!

    While we are talking about dining at Walt Disney World Resort, be sure to check out the Disney Dining Plan. The Disney Dining Plan is available to purchase for Guests staying at select Disney Resort Hotels. My family always adds a Disney Dining Plan when we visit. It’s the best way to enjoy all the delicious meals and Mickey-shaped snacks offered throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. 

    I hope this has answered your question William! Please visit us again if you have any more questions about dining at Walt Disney World Resort. I know all of us here will be more than happy to share some of our personal favorite restaurants!

    See ya real soon!
