    My name's Holly and I'm staying at the Coronado Springs Hotel from the 21/5/11 for 1 week. How necessary is it to book table service restaurants. It's my first visit and I have no idea what time or what we will fancy to eat. Do they get booked quickly?

    Hi Holly!

    It doesn't matter what time of year you visit Walt Disney World...the restaurants are always busy.  I always advise that you book your dining reservations early.  It's very disappointing to get to a restaurant or dinner show and not be able to get seated.

    I know that it's your first visit (VERY EXCITING), but here's my advice to you.  Go to and read about the different restaurants.  There will be quite a few that will appeal to you, and you'll be able to narrow it down.  Also, I like to pick restaurants according to what park I'll be in on a particular day, this way I don't have to worry about transportation and travel times.  Remember that character dining is extremely popular and book quickly.

    I hope this helps, and that you have a magical time at Walt Disney World!

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
