    What is the best way to get reservations for 9 people when traveling during the dates for December 25th-January 1st?

    Hello Heather!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  

    For your upcoming vacation, you will be able to make advanced dining reservations 180 days in advance. The best places do fill up very quickly, so I strongly suggest being on the phone (407-WDW-DINE) right at 7:00 a.m. when it opens.  For a party of your size, you'll need to ask the Cast Member that answers to transfer you to the group dining line.  There, a group dining concierge will be able to help you make the best possible reservations for your large party.  

    I hope this helps!  Visiting at the end of December is a wonderful time to vacation at Walt Disney World. In face, I will be there too.  If I can help answer any other questions you might have, please feel free to come back and ask.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
