    We are planning our first DW trip in Junes. We know we want the meal plan but can't decide on the two quick service meals or the one quick service and one table service. I am concerned about the reservations and having to plan too much. Suggestions?

    Hi Jennifer!  I have taken and planned hundreds of Disney vacations and the one thing I always suggest to guests is to make time each day to slow down and relax and enjoy each other's company.  One of the great ways to do this is to make a dining reservation each day either for the lunch meal or the dinner meal. It assures every member of the family a time to share their most exciting thing for the day or wish that might come true for the future.  By the time you reach your resort at the end of the day everyone is too tired to have conversation and so much is missed!

    I suggest the plan where you will have the one table service choice each day. You don't have to select fancy restaurants or expensive signature dining experiences.  There are great choices out there and it is very easy to make reservations ahead.  You can do this 180 days in advance and can even do it on the computer now where you can keep track of all that you do ahead of time.  Click HERE to see how easy it is.

    Have every family member choose one place they would like to eat and then fit it into a schedule. There are great dining options not only in each park but so many resorts as well as Downtown Disney. This is another way to see other locations during your vacation and you might find a place you would like to try on your next visit!
