    Do I need to make reservations for all our meals? I made one for a character breakfast, but didn't think I had to for the regular restaurants. I figured we would just stop at a restaurant at the park we were at that day.


    In the past, only popular restaurants like Cinderella's Royal Table and Chef Mickey's booked up.  However, gone are the days where you can just go up to a restaurant in Disney and get a table in 15 minutes....

    With Disney pushing their Dining Plans and even offering free dining during some months of the year, restaurants fill up--even the ones that I wouldn't necessarily put top on my "To-Do" list.

    Yes, there are still stand-by reservations available--and some folks would argue that reservations hamper their "flexibility"--but rather than losing time trying to find them or waiting an hour and a half to be seated, I would suggest making all of your reservations before you leave, if you are able. You can always call and cancel (not a requirement, but trust me, other guests will be thankful for this courtesy!)

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
