    We are staying at the Disney All star and bought the diner plan, should I book all the dining times or can you just walk up and use. also does any one know the times for the parade and fieworks so I do not book around that time

    Hi, Betty! I love to hear from my fellow Tennesseans! If your Disney Dining Plan is any except the Quick-Service Plan you WILL want to make Advance Dining Reservations.  Quick-service dining doesn't need (or accept) reservations.  All of the other plans include Table Service meals.  You need reservations for those.  You didn't say when you are traveling, but at some times in the year, it is nearly impossible to get a Table Service meal without a reservation.   You can begin booking these 180 days prior to your arrival date either online or by calling 407-WDW-DINE.


    To find the parade and nighttime show schedule (including fireworks), you go to and select the theme park you want to check from the menu at the top of the page. On the new page, select Calendar from the menu on the left. From the drop-down menu, choose the month you need to view. When the calendar appears, the daily park hours and any Extra Magic hours will be listed. To view the parade and nighttime event schedule, simply click on the numeral of the date you are interested in attending. Repeat for each of the parks. All of the magic is at your fingertips. Have a Magical vacation!
