    Hi! We are making our first trip to WDW from June 15 thru 19th. Wow, I need a little help making the most of our time. We have 4 days of tickets, park hopper and water option. Best way to make dining reserve. while still having ample time at parks?

    Hi Crystal,

    Wow! Your trip is so close-hope you have a blast!

    When we plan our trips, we think about which park we want to visit and then build our meals around it. The Park Hopper option makes it easy to start one place and visit another later in the day.

    We generally only book dinners as we usually eat in our room and lunch is on the fly. However, we use dinner to sit, relax and decide if we want to continue touring or go back to our resort.

    I generally find dining at table service meals in Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom to be limited. When we visit these parks, we generally eat at the resorts as it gives us a break from the crowds.

    Epcot has some of the best dining and we love eating here. We also visit the BoardWalk for meals and we dine on the BoardWalk if we are leaving Disney's Hollywood Studios to go to Epcot.

    When we go to a water park, we choose Downtown Disney as an evening of dining and shopping.

    Here is a list of some of my family's favorite dining!

    Have a magical vacation!
