    Making our 1st trip to WDW on 10/09/11 We did not want to schudale our meals, so is our only option counter service? I know we are taking our chances, but are most places always booked? Thank you

    Hi Sherry,

    Yes, you are definitely taking a chance my friend.  Remember that most Guests make their dining reservations 180 days out to get reservations for their favorite restaurants.  I would hate for you to have to eat Counter Service Meals your entire vacation if that is not what you want. 

    There's really no way to tell you if the restaurants will be booked.  You can always go to the podium to see if there's a reservation available; however, please do not be disappointed if you can't get in.  I would suggest that you make at least a few dining reservations.  I hope this helps!

    Have a magical day!
