    I am making dinner and lunch reservations and I am wondering what times for lunch and dinner are the least crowded?

    I love the restaurant planning part of organizing a trip itinerary, Holly!  Isn't it fun?  As for what time is best to dine, I've always found that making reservations for off-peak times is best.  Doing so allows us to typically be seated upon arrival instead of having to wait for awhile.  I like to schedule our lunches for 11:30, or 11:45 at the latest.  For dinner, we opt for a dining time of around 5:45.  If you are accustomed to eating later, you might go for a lunch at 1:30 or 1:45 and dinner at 8:00 or 8:30.  I hope that helps!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
