    Hi, Do I need to make all of my dining reservations in advance or can I leave some open and decide while we are there? Do they leave a certain amount of reservations open for walk ups? Thanks!

    I very strongly suggest that you make all of your reservations in advance. Disney books table service meals 6 months in advance, and many people take full advantage of that early booking window. In fact, if you are visiting at a busy time (holidays, Food & Wine Festival, free dining periods) advance reservations are really more of a requirement, as you are not likely to find anything available once you arrive.

    Disney Dining would be happy to assist you in booking your meals and finding availability that suits your family's schedule. Just call 407-WDW-DINE to book.
