It’s officially off-peak season at the parks. This means lower crowds and shorter lines…YAY!
It’s a great time to enjoy some of the many wonderful restaurants at Walt Disney World since seating may be available without a reservation. Tempt your taste buds with restaurant information, menus and reviews on our Disney Dining planning page.
