On what is the hottest day of the year, possibly ever in Ottawa, I’m going to broach a topic that seems so far off. Christmas. Why am I pushing the panic button? Because there’s only 161 days left until Christmas and if you plan on being at Disney World this year, you need to make your dining reservations….STAT!
Christmas is a wildly popular time of year to visit the Magic Kingdom and planning ahead will make your trip far more enjoyable. It was around this time last year that we started to line up all the things we wanted to have in place to make our trip spectacular.
Reservations at Fort Wilderness, what attractions we wanted to see most, like The Osborne Spectacle of Lights and the massive Gingerbread House at Disney’s Grand Floridian, and finally where we were going to have our Christmas breakfast. For us, there was no better place to be than Cinderella’s Castle on Christmas morning, the icon really of all things Disney. Also, it was the perfect place to be to stroll out and catch the Christmas Day parade.
BUT, I made my reservations in July and so should you! Make your reservations now! You can make dining reservations up to 180 days in advance of your trip. Which means we’re already 19 days past! *Gulp* If it’s already sold out, don’t despair. Keep trying. There are cancellations all the time. Persistence is key. Visit the Disney Dining & Reservations page to explore what your options are for dining. Then sit the family down and make a plan. Go! (and have fun)
