    Do I need to make ADR for every breakfast and dinner? We're staying at the Contemporary with dining plan, and it sounds like we can't just walk into Chef Mickey's for meals (even if we don't want the character meal). What other quick meal options are there

    Hi Brad,

    You do not have to make any Advance Dining Reservations for your trip though I highly recommend it. ADRs are more important if you are going during busy times of the year when the crowds are at its highest, and there are only so many seats available at the table service restaurants.

    As for Chef Mickey's, you will get the character experience as it is all in the price of the meal. There is Tempo Grab and Go for quick meals and other restaurants at the Contemporary are listed in the link I have included.

    Your best bet for quick meal options are in the parks themselves. However, unless you are using the Quick Service dining plan, you will be paying for table service in your plan. If you do not think you will need this feature, than I would change the dining plan and save some money.

    Have a great trip!
