    I recently booked a Disney Vacation Package, including the Disney Dining plan for our family of four. We are going to be at Disney from May 10-14th. The problem that I'm running into is that most of the Table Service restaurants are booked already.

    Disney's most popular dining locations book up early, which makes it a bit more difficult to plan your meals when your trip is so quickly approaching.  My suggestion would be to try for a reservation at one of the more obscure restaurants.  Another approach is to be willing to dine at off times (ie., late lunch or dinner).  Here are some thoughts on where you might have more luck getting a reservation:  Biergarten, La Hacienda De San Angel, Tony's Town Square, Tutto Italia, The Wave.  If all else fails, you can always approach the podium of any given restaurant and inquire about walk-in seating.  Good luck!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
