    Hi. Our trip is scheduled for Thanksgiving week. This will be our DD (2.5 yrs) first trip to Disney. Do you recommend making a reservation for Thankgsiving dinner, or should we just play it by ear?

    I absolutely, whole-heartedly, without hesitation recommend securing a dining reservation for Thanksgiving, Jennifer.  And furthermore, I recommend doing it as soon as possible!  Thanksgiving is among the busiest times to visit Walt Disney World.  As such, you can expect to find most restaurants booked solid for Thanksgiving dinner.  I'd hate to think that your family might have to make do with chicken strips and fries for the holiday.  Without delay, call 407-WDW-DINE and secure a reservation for your trip.  Ready, set, go!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
