    Do you really have to make reservations at all the place you want to eat at?

    Hi Tabby,

    The table service restaurants at Walt Disney World are very popular, and depending upon the specific venue you have in mind and the time of year you are visiting, securing a table without a reservation can be tough.  It does take a bit of work and planning, but I do recommend making advanced dining reservations for at least those restaurants you are most interested in dining at by calling 407-WDW-DINE (939-3463) up to 180 days before your trip.  If you are travelling off-season, and tend to eat at non-peak times, it is possible to get a table without a reservation with a minimal wait at some establishments.  However, if you are visiting during the holidays, peak summer months or other popular times of year, I do suggest calling ahead to avoid disappointment and/or long waits for a table.

    Have a magical trip!
