    I have 3 more days until I make dining reservations. I am making them for 9 people. 5 adults, 4 children (although 2 children are 10 & 12 & considered adults for dining). Will I have trouble getting reservations for this size group on-line?

    Welcome back, Joan!

    Hooray for ADR (Advance Dining Reservation) Day! Other than making the resort or vacation package reservation, making dining reservations is often one of the first in the many Disney countdown activities. 

    My family almost always travels in groups when we visit Walt Disney World Resort. Usually, I'm able to get most of the reservations we are hoping for. I always start with which I think I'll have the most trouble securing due to popularity and move on from there. Occasionally, I will have to make two separate reservations, splitting our group up, and once we arrive to check-in at the restaurant I'll request to see if we are able to sit together or at least near each other. If you aren't able to get one, don't give up! Sometimes it can be a few days or even weeks and something will open up!

    Good luck in making your desired reservations. If we are able to be of any other assistance, please let us know! Happy planning and have a wonderful vacation.
