Is it worth making ADR's for two people?

Aside from one evening when I want to eat at the Rose and Crown during Illuminations (which I've booked), is it worth making ADR's when there are only two of us. I want to eat at the Sci Fi Dine in Theatre and the 50's Prime Time but we don't mind when or which day. Do you think they'll be walk ups available if we don't really mind when we eat?

It depends on time of year that you are going. During Peak seasons, I would most definitely make ADRs regardless.
If you have a good idea of the restaurants that you would like to eat at, it would be peace of mind to book ADRs and know that you have a spot. Especially if the restaurants are in parks.

Oh yeah, sorry. That would probably help! We're going from 31st March until 21st April.

That's a long trip, but seeing as you are from the UK it wouldn't be all that unusual.

If you want Be Our Guest, 'Ohana dinner before 8 PM, or a character meal you should book those ASAP. You probably won't get Be Our Guest. If you want to try walking up there, do it a bit before 4 PM when they open for dinner.

March 31 is Easter. The week after that will be busy. You should book restaurants in parks if you know you want to eat in certain parks at certain times. Yes, if you want Prime Time or Sci Fi during that week you should try to book something. The rest of the time you may be able to go with same-day reservations if you don't mind eating at off-peak times. If you don't mind leaving a park to eat, you can find more options.

Absolutely. You'll be visiting during one of the busiest times of the year. If you want to eat dinner at a TS place anywhere I recommend making an ADR!

If you want to sit in a car at Sci Fi it is best to make a reservation. There are picnic tables in the back that are usually offered to walk ups instead of the cars.
