    We are planning our trip Oct 15 - 22 and was considering the Deluxe Dining Plan. Will I be able to get reservations this close to our trip? I don't want to spend the extra money if I can't get into any of the table dining restaurants.

    Honestly, it will be tight. I suggest that you come up with a list of restaurants where you'd like to dine, and then call Disney Dining (407-WDW-DINE). They will be able to check availability for you at each place, on each day, at varying times. Because they can look at larger blocks of time than we can online, this would be faster than making your ADRs online.

    Once you call Disney Dining, you'll have a better idea of what availability is out there. If there aren't many openings, then you will know you'd save money by using the basic dining plan. If there are, you'll be able to feast using the deluxe plan! Either way, the Dining Reps will be able to help you determine the best plan based on current availability.

    Good luck!
