    We are staying at our time share and will be eating breakfast there every morning, so we are planning on lunches and dinners at WDW. Do I have to make a reservation for every lunch and dinner that we are their in order to insure we will have a place to eat

    It depends, Karen.  If your family is the type that doesn't mind grabbing a casual bite at a counter service location, then you're safe without reservations.  If, like my family, you'd rather sit down and unwind over a leisurely meal, then you'll definitely need reservations.  Many of the restaurants at Walt Disney World book up completely and have to turn away walk-up guests.  I don't want you to be one of those that gets turned away!  Perhaps a reasonable compromise is to book a few reservations at the restaurants you don't want to miss.  For the remainder of your meals, you can keep your fingers crossed for restaurant availability or simply dine at a counter service location.  Also, you can always call 407-WDW-DINE relatively last minute and see which nearby restaurants have openings.  I've had good luck doing that a time or two.  Good luck!
