    Can I book reservations for more people than are linked to me on My Disney experience? Also is a table for 11 difficult to book? And can we change the number of guests on a reservations without loosing the reservation?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Andrea. We just love when you stop by!

     One of my favorite things to do at the Walt Disney World Resort is EAT. And with over 400 unique dining experiences in and out of the theme parks, there is plenty of eating to be done! Many dining locations offer reservations, which a fantastic way to guarantee you'll be seated in popular restaurants like Cinderella's Royal Table or Be Our Guest Restaurant. I'm happy to tell you that you can make dining reservations for Guests who are not linked to your My Disney Experience account through Family & Friends. Fan-favorite restaurants book to capacity quite quickly though, so you'll want to make those dining reservations as soon as you can. If you make your reservations when that availability window opens up 180-days in advance, you should have no trouble booking for 11 Guests! You will not lose your dining reservation if you need to reduce the number of Guests in your dining party. However, you may lose your table if you need to add Guests to an existing reservation, so err on the side of caution when selecting your party size. 

     Speaking of dining, be sure to use mobile ordering when dining at select Quick-Service restaurants. This convenient option on the My Disney Experience app saves my family lots of valuable time in the theme parks!

     I hope this was helpful, Andrea. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have!
