    We're visiting Oct for the 1st time from New Zealand. I have booked two character dining meals. Do we need to make reservations for other casual dining? Is it possible to just turn up? I don't know how tired we will be or what sort of food we will want.

    Hi Roger, It's a good thing you have your Character Dining secured, but it is highly recommended to make reservations for your other Table Service Restaurants. You can always cancel them when you arrive if you feel that there is something other than what you have booked that you would want to do an a particular day. It is a shame to get there and find out that most of the restaurants are filled up and miss out on dining at some of the more popular places. You will not need to make reservations for the Counter Service Restaurants, only the Table Service ones. Enjoy! Best wishes, Brigitta
