    With covid restrictions can a group of 10 sit together at a restaurant like chef mickeys for example, or am I better off splitting us into 2 reservations?

    I love a gathering at Walt Disney World, there is something about sharing magical and memorable moments with family and friends which are sure to last a lifetime. And planning for a large group is key to a successful Walt Disney World vacation. 

    Guests are able to make advance dining reservations 60-days prior and those staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel are able to make 60-days prior plus up to 10-days past their arrival date. Because of the size of your party and depending on availability, you will more than likely be seated at two tables and may have reservations that are just minutes apart. I recommend calling (407) WDW-DINE, a Cast Member is better equipped to research and accommodate your request as well as any other advance dining reservation you are interested in. I recommend arriving early to your reservation and speaking to a Cast Member about potentially requesting your two tables be in close proximity. Maybe with a little bit of Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust your wish will come true. 

    And as Walt Disney World Resorts continue with phased reopenings, some exciting dining additions are cooking up in May.  May 16, Chef Mickey’s is reintroducing a Family Feast dinner menu as Mickey and his Friends entertain you with many moments for contactless selfies. And Cape May Café will debut a family-style breakfast and dinner beginning May 18. At the moment Minnie is still busy around the parks and will not be able to visit Disney’s Beach Club Resort, during this time. And finally, Tusker House in Disney’s Animal Kingdom will return with a modified character dining experience sometime this summer. More information will follow shortly about reservations, menus and further details. 

    Walt Disney World continues to monitor and maintain a healthy and safe environment and as we continue to move forward many changes are sure to happen. Follow the Disney Parks Blog for continuous updates and check out our Instagram (@planDisneypanel) for more Disney Magic.

    Have a Practically Perfect Day,

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
