Mom And Son On Run

    We will be visiting WDW for 1st time w/ our 3-year old. I can't decide on a dining plan. We would really enjoy the one table service meal each day, but worried about being locked into a reservation, especially with unpredictable 3 yr old. Any suggestions

    Hi, Erin! When traveling with a young child, flexibility is a key component to keeping the vacation fun for everyone (Mom and Dad, too).  I think that you are definitely on the right track with just making one Advance Dining Reservation per day.  With more, it can feel as though you have to make your youngster (and everyone else) stop the fun and be prepared to eat according to the required schedule.  No one wants to punch a time clock on vacation.  I AM in favor of experiencing the great Table Service meals available at Walt Disney World, just not at EVERY meal.  Your other meals can be quick and easy counter service meals.  So, go with the flow and enjoy the moment.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
