    We are coming as a large family in February (19-25) and are having an awful time trying to book dining for 11 of us. Is there a person we can call to help make the arrangements? We have tried to do 4 at a time but that is not working

    Hi Carol,

    I'm really excited to hear that you'll be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with so many family members! There's nothing better than experiencing the most magical place on earth with the ones you love most!

    I'm sorry to hear that you're having some trouble finding dining reservations for your larger party. Since Guests can begin making reservations 180 days in advance, it could be that some of the restaurants are already reserved. Hakuna Matata - no worries, though! Some of my family's favorite dining experiences have been at some of the more "off the beaten path" places, so even if your first choice isn't available, you may discover a new favorite restaurant! Some of our favorite restaurants that often have availability for large groups or on shorter notice include Trails End Restaurant, Biergarten Restaurant, Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen, The Wave... of American Flavors, Chefs de France, Teppan Edo, Whispering Canyon Cafe, and Olivia's Cafe. I'd also encourage you to keep looking if you have your heart set on a certain restaurant because Guests' plans do frequently change and something could open up. Also, I'm happy to let you know that yes, you may absolutely call a Cast Member who specializes in dining reservations at (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463, too, and he or she would be happy to see if they can find availability that works with your plans! I'm sending some pixie dust that you'll find the perfect dining reservations to make your visit with your family special and fun!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Carol, and please let us know if you have any other questions as you're planning your trip. I hope that you and your entire family have a truly magical...and delicious...vacation!
