    We will be at WDW in Feb. We have the duluxe dining plan and would like to reserve our supper/lunch. How do you know which restaurants to reserve at if you don't know which park you'll be at that day? Any suggestions on preferred places to eat? Girls are 5

    Hi, Richard!

    Planning your vacation agenda is part of the fun when going on a Walt Disney World vacation.  I usually look ahead at the calendars for park hours and decide which parks I will go to on which days. (Calendars are posted about 6 months out, so you can plan ahead.)  Once you have your days planned out, you can start filling in your dining.  For example, if you know you will be in Epcot, you might want to plan breakfast with the Princesses at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in the Norway Pavilion.  If it is a Magic Kingdom day, dinner with Pooh and his pals at Crystal Palace might be fun.  Other fun dining locations are Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary Resort, Tusker House (breakfast buffet) in Animal Kingdom, and the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater in Hollywood Studios. 

    So let's go through the steps:
    1.  Plan out your park days
    2.  Decide where you would like to dine
    3.  Make your Advance Dining Reservations up to 180 days in advance HERE

    It is kind of like putting a puzzle together!  It might take moving things around a few times to get it right, but by planning ahead you can enjoy your vacation once you arrive and get the most out of your Dining Plan.  Have fun planning and let me know if you need help along the way!
