It depends on when you're there. I've had times when all restaurants were fully booked a week in advance! This is more the exception, but on busy times it can definitely happen.We have a reservation at Walt's for dinner our second night, but haven't made any other reservations. In the event that we want to make reservations for the third night or for a lunch, is it likely that we can get one a day or two ahead of it or are we likely to find no availability?
The advantage of DLP is that it's build for France, meaning different seasons, so a lot is indoors (because of cold in the winter or day long drizzles any time of year). They also put up mist walls in certain areas where you can walk through to cool down a bitSo, we're there next week (Tuesday through Friday), and the forecast is showing 97 F on Tuesday, and better than 90 F our other days, too. UGH! On the plus side, at least our Disney hotel has A/C (the ones we're staying in in Normandy and Paris do not, though Normandy won't be THAT hot). I'm hoping the forecasts change, because I've done DLR when temps are above 90, and it's not optimal. I live in Arizona, so I'm used to some heat, but being outside in it is tough.
Oh, well. Maybe it'll keep the crowds away.
Mist walls are the “air conditionned” areas of DLP. There's nothing like Carrousel of Air Condition here!The advantage of DLP is that it's build for France, meaning different seasons, so a lot is indoors (because of cold in the winter or day long drizzles any time of year).

Kind reminder: A/C in hotels in Europe is not the same as A/C in the US, be prepared for this.Well, in a classic "Be Careful What You Wish For" way, my wish came true. The forecast did, indeed, change. IT GOT WORSE. Way worse. For our arrival day and two full days, we're looking at highs of 99, 104, and 105. Then, inexplicably, it drops to the 80s for departure day.
Again, grateful that these are the only days of our trip that we'll be in a hotel with A/C. Just wish these days weren't happening.
