    We will be visiting WDW Dec 6 to Dec 13 with 4 adults, a 6 yr & a 3 yr old.We are making some meal reservations.Since this is a "less crowded" time to visit, do you recommend reservations for all meals.We have planned days but want some freedom.


    If I understand correctly, you are asking whether or not you need to make advanced reservations vs. just waiting until you are at WDW to figure out your dining.  If so, I would say that you will likely find many restaurants with some availability, but the most popular restaurants and most popular times will not be available.  I would recommend that you figure out which restaurants you are the most interested in going to, and making reservations for those, and perhaps just "wing" the rest. 

    Keep in mind as well that many of the restaurants do not penalize you for late cancellation. So, when in doubt, I'd make the reservation and simply cancel it beforehand if you change your mind.  In this case, please do cancel it - so other guests have an opportunity to dine (call 407-WDW-DINE to cancel).

    Hope that helps. ºoº
