    Hello there, I do not have a room reservation yet but I read somewhere that with My Disney Experience you do not need a room reservation to book advanced dining reservations. Is this correct?

    Hi, Tracey!

    Reservations for restaurants at Walt Disney World can be booked up to 180 days in advance. You do not need a resort reservation to book your dining. You will need to secure your dining reservation with a credit card, and there is a $10 per person "no show" fee so make sure to keep track of the reservations you book and cancel at least 24 hours prior to avoid the no-show penalty.

    So now the hard part - how to pick from all the amazing dining locations in Walt Disney World? Some of my favorites:

    -Via Napoli in Epcot
    -Whispering Canyon Café at the Wilderness Lodge
    -50's Prime Time Café in Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Good luck deciding!
