Are you arriving late at night and don't know what to do for dinner when you arrive?

When you arrive, call room service from the road. Tell them when you'll be arriving and what you would like so they can have it prepared and sent right up. If they won't prepare the food until you've checked in, have one person call from the check-in lobby while the other person goes through the rest of the check-in process and you'll probably get there at the same time as your food. You can get the menus for your resort on AllEars.net and the phone numbers in your PassPorter.

Well, yes, that's a good suggestion if your resort has room service. Only the Deluxes all have it, I'm pretty sure. The Moderates have some room service, but I don't know how much or if orders are filled in the middle of the night, for instance.

About all the Values have is pizza delivery, and Disney's room service pizza is terrible.

I'd plan to grab something at the airport before heading for WDW if you've had a long flight and are starved. You've a better chance of getting something you'll like unless your resort has plenty of room service options. Besides, if you're on the dining plan, you'll either pay OOP or blow 2cr per person for room service.

ok

Good points although we don't always stay on site and it has worked great at off-site resorts and timeshares!

One other issue I see is that your room is not firmly "assigned" to your reservation until the moment you check in. Since Disney's Room Service will need to have your room number, I think you'll probably have to wait until you are at least in the check-in process.

For those of us who drive and are farther down the food chain, the Hess stations are open and have the usual fine fare associated with gasoline: doughnuts, hot dogs, slushies. And the McD's drive-thru near the All Stars is open quite late, if not all night. Plus Picabu is open 24 hours at the Dolphin.

Sure, not arguing with you there but for the fact that very few hotels we've ever stayed in and gotten room service had food anywhere worth what it cost. The GF is a notable exception. Deeee-lish!

Consider, please, that when you say "resort," people are most likely to think you're referring to on-property ones. Eileen makes a more important point than I thought of--without a room number you're likely to have serious problems trying to order room service at WDW. As many places as you could grab something on the way in, I'm unsure why room service would be a good option anyway. It certainly isn't for those budgeting.

We very much prefer arranging our check-in time somewhat before mealtime so we're settled before hunger becomes an issue. No kids to yowl they're starving, so we're in a pretty lowkey oink out mood when we do finally hit the trough.

Also, many of the food courts are open until 11pm or midnight. It would probably be easier (and cheaper) to send one parent into the grab-n-go section and pull together a picnic.
