    Erin, do you think I would have to call group dining for a reeservation for 15 ppl for my rehersal dinner or do I call the main dining number? It's still a ways off but I want to be prepared. :)

    For an event such as a rehearsal dinner I would most definitely call group reservations rather than the regular Disney DIning number. Your special event is likely to require some things that the regular reservations number won't be able to help you with.

    - WIll you want a private room?
    - WIll you want a photographer there?
    - WIll you want a special menu?
    - Will you need extended time in the restaurant?
    - Do you want special dessert items?
    - Do you want a Disney character to make an appearance?
    - Will you want to pre-select the wine or other beverages?
    - Do you want any special decorations or floral arrangements?

    These are all things that a Grand Gathering even specialist or group event coordinator could help you with. Also, if you're having your rehearsal dinner at WDW, does this also mean that your wedding is at WDW? If you are having your wedding at WDW, then your wedding planner will likely be able to help you with ancillary events like a rehearsal dinner.

    Best of luck to you as you begin your magical life together!
