    We are planning on using a Deluxe Dining Plan this June. We have booked several TS meals, but I want to know your thoughts on QS meals. Are they hard to get without reservations in the summer? We'd like to enjoy some unplanned time.

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Michelle!

    Using the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan on your vacation this summer is really going to give your family a great opportunity to try some of the world-class dining that's available at Walt Disney World Resort. It sounds like you've done some research and have picked some delicious Table-Service dining experiences, so let's chat a little bit about how to use your Meal credits when you want to enjoy a Quick-Service meal.

    I'm pleased to tell you that the vast majority of Quick-Service dining locations do not require a reservation, and you can just walk up to the counter and order at your convenience. There are some exceptions that do require and book reservations, like breakfast and lunch at Be Our Guest Restaurant and Pizzafari Family Style Dining, but other than that you are free to enjoy Quick-Service restaurants at your leisure. Some of my favorites are Flame Tree Barbecue at Disney's Animal Kingdom, and Columbia Harbour House in Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom Park. Make sure to take advantage of restaurants that offer mobile ordering when you're enjoying that unplanned time in the theme parks. It can really help you save some time, which we know is really important when you're on vacation.

    Have a magical day, Michelle!
