    Hello - we are planning our first visit Nov 18 - we are staying at the Grand Floridian and have the Deluxe Dining plan- I am confused if we need a reservation for every meal? Is there anyplace in our hotel we can eat without a reservation? Thanks!

    Hi Erica! How exciting to be planning your first Disney vacation! You certainly won't be disappointed with the gorgeous Grand Floridian Resort. You don't "need" a reservation, but I highly recommend it. Full service restaurants are very popular, and to avoid disappointment, I recommend making reservations in any of your must dos. If you can't make reservations, then I suggest going at off-peak hours, such as mid-afternoon or late evening.

    The Grand Flordian has so many awesome, full service dining spots - 1900 Park Fare, Citricos, Narcoossee's and the Grand Floridian Cafe are all fantastic! Gasparilla Grill and Games is the only quick service restaurant and does not take reservations.

    Click here to book reservations online, or call (407) WDW-DINE (939-3463).

    Happy dining Erica!
