My personal opinion is that we aim for a bare minimum of ADRs. Far more than touring plans, having a bunch of ADRs makes us feel too scheduled. We have ended canceling nearly all of our ADRs during our trips. For example, we were there in late June, and it was insanely hot out. We were so miserable killing time in HS until our Sci Fi ADR, but hated to eat the no-show fee and still have to pay to eat somewhere else. Having that reservation was a significant point of friction with DH, and DS5 was done and ready to go back to the hotel to swim and eat a burger or something.
Also, my son was resistant to a lot of sitting and eating, and would far rather hit counter services and graze around and have more fun with food. Even with character meals, sitting an eating for an hour or more doesn’t feel like “fun” for a kiddo, in my experience.
My favorite places to eat, therefore, include lots of counter service places. Sunshine Seasons, Gaston’s Tavern, Yak & Yeti counter, Restaurantosaurus, pretzel carts, popcorn carts, almost any CS in Epcot WS.
Rather than looking to book one or two ADRs per day, I would look to book maybe 2 for an entire trip, and make them be special events. Maybe characters, maybe showy food prep, maybe something fun like WCC or O’hana. But I personally think that more than 2-3 ADRs in a trip is counterproductive to fun with kids.
