    Thanks, for your reply! Because it's our first time visiting DW, we really don't know what to expect. I want to make a reservation for our son and daughter to have a character dinner, how far in advance do we have to book it. Is Oct a good month to go?

    Hi Jill!

    You are very welcome!  Thank you for visiting us again, and thanks so much for your question!

    I would book as many meals as close to 180 days from arrival as possible--it'll give you the most options, and availability.  

    October is...hands FAVORITE TIME to go!!  The weather cools off a little bit, they Halloween decorations at Magic Kingdom are great, and Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is SO MUCH FUN!  Crowds are generally lower this time of year (except for Columbus Day Weekend)--a WONDERFUL time to make memories!!

    Have a magical vacation and let me know if I can help you further!
