Make the most of your dining experience at Walt Disney World with these tips and tricks from fellow vacationers like you:

“Advanced dining reservations for the most popular Walt Disney World restaurants can be very difficult to acquire, even when searching 180 days before your vacation, and especially during Free Dining dates. You can search for reservations months in advance, adjusting dates and times, and still not find any availability. Do not be discouraged! A credit card is required to reserve most reservations and will incur a fee if not cancelled at least one full day prior to the reservation. This cancellation window creates wonderful opportunities to acquire desirable reservations, which previously seemed impossible to get. Once you arrive at Disney, begin searching a day or two before you want a reservation. This trick has always worked for me on our annual vacations!”

“Dining is a huge part of what makes our trips so much fun. On our last trip we had the Disney Dining Plan, which was awesome for us. I start planning (with my PassPorter in hand, of course!) which theme park we’re going to do aim for. Notice I said ‘aim for’—if things don’t go to plan I don’t sweat it. I then plan either a sit-down breakfast or a sit-down dinner on that day. The odd time we’ll do two sit-down meals, but usually for us one is enough. Whatever else we end up doing that day, we really aim for the restaurant we’ve chosen so we make sure we put in lots of space for a nap beforehand or have some healthy snacks on hand for the morning if it’s a late breakfast. I find this puts a nice anchor into our days even though I like to keep them laid back, and gives my husband and I something to look forward to each day. Since I’m the chief planner, he says to me, ‘Where are we eating today?’ and I tell him all about it. Sometimes the places we are eating are in the parks and that makes it a no-brainer as to which park we’ll do that day. It works really well for us!”

Magical Memories

“On the morning of our vacation, I packed a little Disney surprise for the ride to the airport. I made non-alcoholic breakfast mock-tails I dubbed ‘Disney Sunrise,’ a bit of grenadine in the bottom of a clear disposable glass, followed by your favorite breakfast juice or juices. Check for sugar content and layer the highest sugar content on the bottom to least on the top. Do not mix. I added a skewer of fresh fruits, topped with a Mickey head cupcake pick. Mickey shaped rice crispie treats completed our breakfast”

...as told by Disney vacationer Teresa Weddelman

“On our last night of a seven-day vacation we ate at Columbia Harbour House in the Magic Kingdom. While I was waiting for my food I asked the cast member what an item in a small plastic bowl was. She told me it was a peach cobbler and handed me one to try. I was so excited and overwhelmed by her kindness. I thanked her profusely and told her ‘You just made my day. We are leaving tomorrow and I am about to cry.’ Then she stuck a swirly green Mickey Mouse straw in my drink cup and said ‘Don’t cry.’”

...as told by Disney vacationer Stacey Rahe
