    Should I make table service reservations for each of my days? My meal plan allows for one QS and one TS a day. I am reluctant to make daily reservations as I don't know what our schedule will be like.

    Hi, Kimberly!

    To make the most of your Disney Dining Plan, I really recommend you make Dining Reservations.   Restaurants are often filled to capacity so to get to use your credits,  you will need to plan ahead. 

    I suggest going to   Look at the Crowd Calendar for your dates and plot out your itinerary.  Once you have a general idea of where you will be each day, make your dining reservations to match. 

    Some ideas:

    Magic Kingdom:  Crystal Palace (all day buffet with Pooh and pals)
    Epcot:  Les Chefs de France (lunch or dinner)
    Animal Kingdom:  Tusker House (breakfast buffet with Donald)
    Hollywood Studios: Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater (lunch or dinner)
    Arrival night:  Head to Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary

    I know it is a lot of work to plan your schedule ahead of time, but having an agenda and dining reservations will really maximize your time on your vacation and get the most value from your dining plan.  Let me know your dates if you want help with a plan!  Good luck!
