    Do we have to make reservations for characters meals in advance or can we make them at the park when we arrive? This is the first visit to WDW for the girls(2&5)and we want it to be as magical as possible. We do not want to leave anything to chance :

    Hi Gail!

    Yeay! I'm glad to hear you are visiting Disney World for the first time! I'm hoping you'll have a wonderful trip that makes tons of memories for you and your girls!

    I'd absolutely recommend making reservations for your character meals as soon as your planning is set. Character meals are among the most popular dining choices at Walt Disney World and can book up very quickly . Reservations open at 180 days in advance, and you can use the convenient online dining reservation system or call 407-WDW-DINE to make your reservations.

    Hope you have a great trip!
