Booking a Disney holiday creates that special rush of excitement you just don’t get with any other holiday. Whether you’re staying in one of the many Disney hotels, International Drive or a villa in Kissimmee, you know it’s going to be magical!
Just ask anyone who has been and they’ll happily tell you that one of the best parts about visiting anywhere in the USA is the food. The restaurants in and around Disney are no different. From The Rainforest Cafe in Downtown Disney to Jiko at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, there are some amazing places to eat in the theme parks and in Disney’s resort hotels. The main issue when you turn up to a restaurant is you may have to wait an hour or more for a table, not ideal after building up an appetite stomping through a theme park all day! Don’t even try and get into any of the character dining restaurants without a reservation or you could be hanging around for a long time!
You can now make reservations online via the Disney website, up to 6 months in advance of your visit. Want to have breakfast with Cinderella and all the Disney Princesses at the Magic Kingdom Castle (trust me, you really do!), or lunch with the Playhouse Disney characters at Hollywood Studios? Get booked up as soon as you hit the 6 month mark and you’re kids will adore you like no parent before!

At the Dining page, select the Restaurants box. (link) Use the filters on the left hand side to sort restaurants by location, theme or style of food.
When you find a restaurant you’d like to book, click the “Book A Reservation” tab. Not all the restaurants listed allow online bookings, but most do.
Almost all the reservations are free, with the exception of a few of the more expensive dining locations.
