    are the picnic tables at the back of the Sci-Fi Dine in theater first come first served, or do you need a reservation to sit there? Can you order from the concession stand?

    Howdy Monica!

    Welcome back to planDisney!  Thank you for sharing your question with us!

    Your vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort is just over a month away!  I know you are ready to be at the place “Where Dreams Come True!”  I am a huge fan of the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!  All seating at the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant will require a reservation and all food purchases are placed from your seat.  This location is a very popular table-service at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  If you are having trouble finding a reservation, I have two recommendations for you.  First, continue to check for availability even up to 24 hours before your preferred day to enjoy this awesome dining experience.  Plans change, and some cancel 24 hours before their reservation date.  Second, once you arrive at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, head over to the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant and check if they had any last-minute cancellations.  Some friends of mine were able to get a reservation at the last moment with a party of six due to a cancellation, so you never know.  If you have not made a reservation yet and some are still available for your park day, then I highly recommend reserving your place as soon as possible!

    The Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Arts will be in full swing during your upcoming vacation!  If you have not experienced this festival, then get ready to immerse yourself in the arts!  You will experience yummy culinary art, performing arts, visual art, and my personal favorite, “Step into” art!  The “Step into” art allows you to “Step into” famous artwork worldwide.  If you see one of the Disney PhotoPass Photographers, then take a moment and strike a pose!  Make sure to ask the Disney PhotoPass Photographer for a Magic Shot!  You never know who might pop up in your photo!

    I know you are ready to take off to Neverland!  I am super excited for you!  Take a moment to check out the Disney Parks Blog daily leading up to your vacation.  This is the best place to find out all the exciting things happening while you are at the Walt Disney World Resort!  If you have any more questions while planning or while you are at the Walt Disney World Resort, please come back to planDisney, Monica!  When you see Mickey, please wave hi from all of us at planDisney!

    See Ya Real Soon,
