    We are 4 adults/2 kids for WDW 11-29/12-7. We have 2 reservations @ Garden Grill @ 8:15am (4 guests) & 8:25am (2 guests) - the only option for all 6 of us to get in. What are the chances of us getting in 10-15 min early &/or both at same time?

    Hi, Jan!  Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    You have chosen one of my family's favorite spots for breakfast in the entire Walt Disney World Resort.  We love Garden Grill Restaurant!  The cinnamon sticky bun bake is amazing!  One of my favorite Epcot tips is to book a pre-park opening breakfast at Garden Grill Restaurant.  After you have visited with Chip 'n' Dale and enjoyed a delicious meal, you can head directly downstairs to ride Soarin' Around the World before most guests have even entered the park at rope drop.

    I have found that when making dining reservations for a large group, it is often easier to find availability if our group is willing to split up as you have done with your Garden Grill Restaurant reservation.  I would recommend you keep checking for availability for your entire party of six right up until the date of your reservation.  Guests often change their plans at the last minute, so you never know when reservations might become available.  Dining reservations can easily be modified using your My Disney Experience mobile app.  If you are unable to find a reservation for six people, you can certainly speak with the Cast Members at the restaurant when you arrive.  While there is no guarantee that your party will be able to be seated earlier or that the two parties will be able to be combined, it never hurts to ask.

    Even if your party must split up and dine at slightly different times, I would still highly recommend experiencing breakfast at the Garden Grill Restaurant.  I think it is the perfect way to start any day at Epcot!
    See ya real soon!
