    Planning a trip for February break, it feels a little last minute for Disney to me. We would like to get the highest meal plan, but want to get the most out of it by eating at the nicest restaurants. Is it too late? Will we be able to get reservations?

    Hi Jessica,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am thrilled to hear that you are getting the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan. My family loves this plan!

    The good news is that you still have time to make those advanced dining reservations. More popular restaurants like Be Our Guest Restaurant and Cinderella's Royal Table may have limited to no availability but, in my experience, reservations do open up, so I advise you to keep checking. When I did a quick scan for February, I was able to find breakfast reservations more easily than dinner reservations for Be Our Guest Restaurant and Cinderella's Royal Table. Once you know your travel dates, just use the online reservation system to check for availability. To check, go to the Walt Disney World website, click on "Things to Do," under "Dining" click on "Make Reservations." Once there, you can filter by the type of dining experience, prince range, cuisine, guest rating, dining plans accepted and location. To filter by location, click on the drop down arrow beside "All Parks and Resorts."

    With the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan, remember that your meals are calculated per night of stay. If you are staying for six nights with two adults on the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan, you would receive 36 total meal entitlements for the length of your stay. All of those meal entitlements will be loaded onto your account at the beginning of your trip and you can use them in whichever order you choose. We prefer to do one meal on the day we arrive, one on the day we depart and the rest of our meals on the in-between days.

    Jessica, we adore the Disney Deluxe Dining plan because the flexibility allows us to dine at so many fabulous restaurants!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
