    I need help booking character dining

    Hello Janine!

    There are so many incredible restaurants at the Walt Disney World Resort! They are located inside the Walt Disney World theme parks, Disney Springs, and the Resorts. I especially love the Character Dining Experiences at Walt Disney World.

    You can make an Advanced Dining Reservation by searching with a Character Dining Filter. To make an Advanced Dining Reservation, you will have to select a date, a time, and the size of your party to see the availability. My tip is to search for dining times outside the regular meal times to increase your chances of finding dining availability. If a restaurant is inside a theme park, you will need a Walt Disney World ticket and a Theme Park Reservation to enter the park. For the restaurants at Disney Springs or inside the Resorts, you will not need a theme park ticket to dine at them. You will have to make Advanced Dining Reservations for Table Service meals. For Counter Service or Quick Service meals, you do not need Advanced Dining Reservations. You can use the My Disney Experience App to mobile order for Counter Service restaurants to save time waiting in line at the restaurant. 

    I hope you experience some fantastic restaurants with Character Dining at Walt Disney World!
