Disney Dining reservations are easy to make, but it’s key to make them as far in advance as possible. I just made my reservations for Be Our Guest a few weeks ago, and I’m visiting WDW in June.
Though you can make reservations in a variety of ways, I recommend making them online from a laptop/desktop. The website works best from a traditional computer. You can later link your reservation to the MyDisney Experience app, making it simple to view your reservations from your smart phone.
There are a variety of specialty dining events throughout the parks, but the Wishes Fireworks Dessert Party, Illuminations Sparkling Dessert Party and the Fantasmic Dining Package allow guests to eat tasty treats with a reserved spot for Disney’s most popular nighttime events.
Wishes Fireworks Dessert Party: Munch on desserts and enjoy an unobstructed, reserved seat for Wishes fireworks at Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant.
Illuminations Sparkling Dessert Party: Enjoy Champagne and desserts from around the world (churros from Mexico/doughnuts from America) while viewing Illuminations up-close.
Fantasmic Dining Package: Make a dining reservation through the Fantasmic package and receive a reserved seat for Fantasmic. My favorite participating restaurant is Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano.
