Toothsome still does not take reservations. If you want to eat there, do it for lunch, around 5 pm, or after 9 pm. Otherwise, you don't NEED reservations, especially any more in advance than that day.

The dining plan is worthwhile if you plan on eating in the Harry Potter restaurants. You get 1 meal, 2 drinks (one with the meal), and a snack. Butterbeer can count as the snack, so that's an $8 inclusion. Pumpkin Juice is allowed to count as the beverage (the only HP drink that is). So if you got a meal, 2 PJs, and a BB you'd come out pretty well ahead.

2 days is enough, especially with the EP.

You don't typically have to make reservations and the dining plan isn't worth it (at least for my family). 2 days is plenty. However, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is a huge part of the park, and if you are HP fans 2 days might not be enough if you want to do/see everything in that part.

We went in January 2017 for 2 days, and all we really needed was one day since we stayed onsite and had the express pass. We plan on doing 1-day park hopping going forward.

That cup is invaluable! We used it for our 2 kids. The cup is very large, and our kids share drinks and food even when we tell them not to, so we figured we would save some money and just get one for both of them to share. If you are not a big soft drink family (I am not, personally, since my teen years despite my love of Dr. Pepper), then you need to decide if this will work for your family. We let our kids drink Sprite on vacations and when we go out to eat, but it is just water at home. Hey, they need to get to be on vacation too.
