    How do I book a dining reservation for 7? I have one for party if 4, tried doing another reservation for a party of 3 and it won’t let me have overlapping reservations.

    How ya doin' Raenelle and welcome to planDisney!

    Booking Advance Dining Reservations are a very important part of planning your Walt Disney World Resort experience. When planning for my most recent visit, I was setting up meals for a party of 10 so I definitely know how you feel. Here's what I did to make sure everyone was fed and ready for action on our vacation!

    This sounds like the perfect situation for my favorite 2 accounts trick! Even though you can't make overlapping reservations on the same My Disney Experience account, you can make reservations at the same time from 2 different accounts. If you have more than one adult in your travel party, make sure they have their own My Disney Experience account from which you can make that second reservation. When the day arrives to enjoy your meal, show up early and ask the Cast Member at the podium if you can be seated together or at least near each other. While there are no guarantees, I can tell you this worked for all of my family meals during our vacation a few short weeks ago. 

    Pro-tip: Don't skip Chef Art Smith's Homecomin' in Disney Springs. That was the only restaurant that didn't give my big, loud, Louisiana family any trouble securing a 10-person reservation.

    Raenelle, fingers crossed that all of your dining wishes will come true. If you have any other questions, just come back and ask me. I'm happy to help!

    Happy planning
