    We are going to WDW Feb 11-21 and using a Disney Dining Plan. Do I need to make reservations for all of my table service means before we go? Do we need to make reservations for the quick service options?

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel with your great question, Eric!  Your Walt DIsney World vacation will be here before you know it!  My family loves the DIsney Dining Plan and have found that it has afforded us the opportunity to experience many new dining locations that we may not have tried otherwise! I would honestly recommend booking an Advanced Dining Reservation for the majority of your table-service meals before leaving home. Many of the table-service restaurants do book up rather quickly as guests are able to book Advanced Dining Reservations 180 days in advance. Advanced Dining Reservations are not accepted at quick-service dining locations. My family traditionally books one table-service meal per day so that I know we are guaranteed one sit-down meal as a family. We can then have great flexibility with the timing and location of our quick-service meals. You may book Advanced Dining Reservations by calling (407) WDW-DINE or by going online here. I hope this helps!  Please feel free to write me back if you have any additional questions or if I can assist you with dining recommendations. Best wishes for a magical trip, Eric!
    Happy Planning,
