    Hello! We will be visiting Disney World in February of 2018. I have secured the dining reservations that we want. For the rest of our meals, we plan to just eat on the go. I am wondering if this is a good idea or should I have reservations for every meal?

    Hello Heather!
    Wow, you must be so excited about your February 2018 Walt Disney World vacation! I just love all the dining options in Walt Disney World! For Quick Service or Counter Service meals no reservations are needed. You just walk up and order what you want (this is similar to a fast food restaurant). Your food is ready quickly after you order and often there are places to sit down to eat your meal. Also many of the Counter Service or Quick Service locations in the 4 theme parks offer Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering through the My Disney Experience App where you can order and pay for your food ahead of time and pick it up when you get there. For Table Service meals (sit down meals), an Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR) is recommended because many Table Service restaurants are popular and may not take walk up Guests because they are full. So I would definitely recommend Advanced Dining Reservations for every Table Service meal that you desire to experience on your Walt Disney World vacation. I hope that your next Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
