About Table Service dining

Table Service restaurants (particularly character meals) can be difficult to get dining reservations for. If you're making dining reservations 180 days ahead of time right when they open up, you shouldn't have any problem getting what you want. If you have less than 180 days, stay flexible with your plans as you make reservations.

If you're on the Disney Dining Plan, be sure to check out the best Table Service Disney Dining Plan values to make sure you're maximizing your credits.
