    We are visiting Disney in March 2010. We will be traveling with 4 adults and 4 year olds. Do we need to have meal reservations for every meal?

    Hi Christy!
     You won't need reservations for "quick service" restaurants where you purchase your food and bring your tray to your table. However, if you plan on dining at a "table service" restaurant, I would suggest making reservations, particularly if you have a "must" dining experience in mind. With the popularity of the dining plan, I find that many restaurants book in advance. My family has been able to walk up and dine at a restaurant without reservations, even at character dining locations, and while this is certainly a possibility, it is a gamble. It helps if you are flexible on your options. If you (or a child in your party) have your heart set on a restaurant and find that it is already booked, I suggest you call Disney dining back again, even up to the day of your visit, as I've had luck on third, fourth, and even fifth tries this way. Good luck!
