    Taking our kids 2, 5, 7 on their first Disney World vacation this Dec. 2-7. We have the dining plan that includes one sit down meal per day. My question is do I need to make adr for every day to use up all of these credits? Feeling a bit overwhelmed!

    Your children are perfect ages to bring to Walt Disney World for a first visit. They will be so captivated by the wonder and magic.

    Yes, Jennifer you do need to make reservations for all your sit down meals. Most table service restaurants book up quite early so be ready to make your choices when your 180 day reservation window opens up.

    Character meals are the most popular so decide if you want to dine with Disney Princesses in Cinderella Castle, have breakfast with Mickey Mouse or lunch with Winnie the Pooh first. Consider planning your park itinerary so you can reserve a sit down meal in the theme parks on the day you visit that park. Many of the resorts also have amazing restaurants you may want to try. Downtown Disney establishments also accept the Disney Dining Plan. Your children would love T-REX Cafe or the Rainforest Cafe.

    When you are ready to book call (407) 939-3463 or book online at Dining Reservations.

    If you would like more help picking out specific restaurants please contact me again. Just tell me where you are staying, what characters your children like, and any other information you think would be helpful.
