What are the hardest restaurants to get reservations for? I will be in WDW 9/20 to 9/26 (free dining) so am looking for what order to attempt to get reservations in. Also any suggestions for reservations are welcome! Thanks!

Hi, Theresa! Absolutely the most difficult reservation anywhere at Walt Disney World to get is any of the meals at Cinderella's Royal Table. This restaurant fills up usually within minutes of the phones opening in the morning, so if you want to try to reserve a table there, be prepared to be on the phone at exactly seven in the morning 90 days before your vacation.
Other restaurants that are tough to get into include Le Cellier in EPCOT, Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary Resort, and 'Ohana at the Polynesian. Character meals tend to book fairly quickly, so if you are interested in any beyond Cinderella's Royal Table and Chef Mickey's, consider booking them first (the Princess Storybook meal at Restaurant Akershus in EPCOT is another tough one to get sometimes). We've also had some trouble getting into the Sci-Fi Dine In at Disney's Hollywood Studios in the past.
With the popularity of the free dining, I can't recommend highly enough that you get on the phone as soon as you can when your 90 day window opens up. Restaurants will fill up quickly!
Have a wonderful vacation!
