    We'll be visiting Disney in just 6 days!! We booked a spur of the moment spring break trip. Now we're trying to decide whether to add the DDP or not? There's not a lot of reservations left for that week, if any. We're traveling with an 8 and 3 yr old.

    Hello, Lisa!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    My family and I have had many "spur of the moment" Walt Disney World Resort vacations and, although they are always MAGICAL, it can be a bit frustrating when it comes to dining.  You will be visiting during a very busy time of year, so it's no surprise that many of the popular restaurants are booked.  

    Here is the plan I always take with my "spur of the moment " trips:

    1.  Try and find out what is out there and book your restaurants of choice.  If you are able to book great Table Service Restaurants for each day, then I recommend the Disney Dining Plan which includes 1 Table- Service meal, 1 Quick-Service meal and 1 snack per person per night of your stay.  I also highly recommend calling and letting a Cast Member help you with each day of your visit.  They are very knowledgable and quick and, with your vacation fast approaching, you will need their expertise.  They can be reached at (407)WDW-DINE.

    2.  If you have no success with booking great Table Service Restaurants.  I would highly recommend the Quick-Service Dining Plan.  This is still a great way to dine and a good way to keep a close eye on your food budget.  This plan allows for 2 Quick-Service meals and 1 snack per person per night of your stay with us.  

    Well, I hope this helps as you continue with your planning.  I am sending pixie dust your way in hopes that you can secure some great restaurants.

    ~Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON"!~
