    Hi Moms! 1st time to WDW and have the DDP. Taking me, dh, 3 kids (9,7,1). Would you suggest doing table service meals every night for dinner? Or should we have some days with lunch or breakfast? Making dinner res. soon and need to know times. Thanks!

    Hi, Tricia!  I definitely would not make an advanced dining reservation for dinner each night.  Some nights, you or the children will just be too tired to go to a big sit down meal, and the temptation will be great to just grab something quick so you can get back to your hotel or so you can move on to the next ride. 

    I would recommend at least one or two days of breakfast, or maybe a nice lunch somewhere like the Crystal Palace, where the kids will have a good time with the characters.  It allows you to be a bit more flexible with your days, and it gives you the chance to enjoy a table service meal without the risk of kids crabby and tired from being so busy all day long!

    Have an awesome trip, Tricia!
