    We are about to make dining reservations for our July vacation. We are a party of 12. The way I am understanding the new rules is that you can’t make a reservation larger than 4 people. Can we book a table of 12 and Disney will split them up to 3 tables?

    Howdy Nancy!

    Welcome back to planDisney!  I love to see guests come back to planDisney and share another question with us!  Thank you for stopping by and sharing another great question!

    I am super excited that you will be making your Advanced Dining Reservations in just a few days!  I recently planned dining reservations for a party of 12, and you will need to call the Walt Disney World Resort and speak with a Cast Member in dining to make all of your arrangements.  I recommend choosing a couple of options for each dining experience.  By having several options, the Cast Member in dining will find you the best fit for your party!  With such a large party, the Cast Member will have to divide your group into two or three tables, depending on the restaurant.  The Cast Member may also schedule your reservations at different times.  Hakuna Matata, No Worries!  I recommend arriving at each restaurant earlier than your reservation time.  Once you arrive, let the Cast Member know which reservations are together in your party, and the Cast Member will do their very best to place everyone as close as possible during your dining experience and in a timely manner.

    Your grand adventure sounds fantastic!  I know you are going to make lots of unforgettable memories!  To capture all of your memories, I recommend adding the Memory Maker option to your Walt Disney World vacation!  With Memory Maker, you will be able to capture an unlimited amount photos at one great price!  Since your party is so large, I am sure you will enjoy several group pictures on your vacation, and the Disney PhotoPass Photographers can take that iconic photo of your entire group in front of Cinderella Castle!  Memory Maker will allow you to take all those pictures home with you to share with family and friends.  

    To stay up-to-date on everything to do and see in July, check out the Disney Parks Blog!  If you have any more questions as you continue to plan this grand adventure to Neverland, please come back to planDisney, Nancy!  We are always here to help you with all your planning questions!
