    H! We are taking my 3 daughters and my niece to Disney Dec 2-5 of this year. Do you know when the best time of day to have a table service meal would be for 6 people? I'm wanting to make reservations soon. Thank you!

    This can be a difficult question to answer without knowing the ages of the children, and not having any information about your itinerary makes it even more of a challenge.  I would say if your consideration is trying to find a reservation for a table that will accommodate six people, your best bet is always to choose a dining time that is off peak hours.  Have a later than normal breakfast, an early dinner, or consider dining after 8 o'clock in the evening.  Those are generally easier times to find tables, even at some of the most popular restaurants.

    You can make your reservations beginning 90 days out, and if you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort, you can make them for up to ten days.  To make sure you get the meals you want close to the times you want, call as soon as you can.  The more popular dining experiences do fill up, so especially with a larger party, it helps to call as early as possible.

    Enjoy your upcoming vacation!
