    How can I make dining reservations for 9 people? I'm trying 6 months in advance but can't seem to get in anywhere I want. If I call will they take reservations that way?

    Hi, there!

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

     I'm so pleased to hear you have an upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation planned. One of my favorite things about vacation planning is making dining plans. With over 300 amazing dining locations at the Walt Disney World Resort, it's hard to choose where we'll visit! I'm sorry to hear you haven't been able to find availability for your group. It could be that there really isn't availability for a party your size (especially at super popular dining locations, even 6-months out), or it could just be that the restaurants you're trying to book can't process a reservation online for 9 Guests. I once had to make several dining reservations for a party of 14. I was able to make some of the reservations online without a problem, but others I had to make over the phone because our large party exceeded those particular restaurant's online reservation caps. I suggest calling a friendly Cast Member at (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-1947. If you're still unable to make the reservations you're hoping for, keep checking while you count down the days until your vacation! Sometimes, availability will magically appear shortly before your arrival. 

     Your stay at the Walt Disney World Resort is the perfect time to kick off the holiday season. I highly recommend purchasing tickets for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party; it's the jolliest, merriest, most magical event I have ever attended! I know you would have an equally unforgettable experience. 

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