7. Check the Disney Website for Dining Packages.
During certain seasons, dining packages may be available for parks. A dining package generally involves prepaying for a prefix meal at a restaurant in the park and first-come, first-served reserved seats at an evening show or parade. The Candlelight Processional dinner package is one of my family favorites in Epcot during the Christmas season. All parks have had dinner packages available at different points in park history. Hop on the Walt Disney World website prior to your vacation to explore dinner package possibilities and see if a package would be a good fit for your family.
