    Hi! We'll be staying at CSR 4/16/11 thru 4/21/11 with our girls ages 6 and 7. If we don't make dining reservations in advance, will we risk not being able to use our sit-down meal package due to crowds? DH wants flexability so is reluctrant to reserve.

    For your upcoming vacation at the Coronado Springs Resort, it is absolutely necessary to make Advance Dining Reservations (ADRs).

    While it is sometimes difficult to find walk-in availability at a table service restaurant in the off-season, it will be near impossible to find a last minute table during this particular holiday week.

    Crowds will be very high during your dates. I truly encourage you to make an ADR for each day of your vacation in order to get the full value of your Disney Dining Plan.

    Plan which days you'll be at each park and then reserve a restaurant that is in that park or at a nearby resort hotel. If you will be returning to your resort for a mid-day break, it is sometimes nice to have a dinner before returning to the park at night. In that case, dining at Downtown Disney or a resort hotel near the park that you are headed to is also a great way to plan your itinerary.

    Allow for some flexibility in when to return to swim/nap at your hotel. But, please make ADRs if you have the Disney Dining Plan!
