    Planning our first trip to Disney in September with our two kids. We have the dining plan and have an idea of which places we want to eat at, any tips on time of day to schedule lunch/dinner?

    Hi Jenna,

    I would advise dining early. Most guests dine at least an hour after the restaurants open for meals. I've found that by booking one of the first seatings that we can enjoy less crowds at the attractions after our meal when most guests are just heading to lunch or dinner.

    I recommend 11 a.m. or earliest available for lunch. And 5:00 p.m. or earliest available for dinner.

    Have a fabulous first trip to Walt Disney World!
