6. Insiders Avoid Traditional Meal Hours

On busy days the counter service restaurants will be packed at noon and at 6:00pm, when many people are used to eating lunch and dinner. Insiders will avoid these times. They may instead eat a late lunch during the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade at the Magic Kingdom. Insiders also know not to look in the main dining area if a restaurant is crowded. They’ll know which counter service restaurants have side dining rooms or upstairs eating areas, and they’ll sit there instead.
