    Our family would like to eat at the Rain Forest Cafe on Sunday, May 8th reserving 3 tables of six. Can this be done through a group reservations specialist or do we need to make separate reservations? What time of day do reservations open 60 days prior?

    Hi there, Mary! Welcome back to planDisney. It sounds like you will have a ROAR of a time on your upcoming trip! I did some research today, and I'm happy to share my findings! 

    There are two Rainforest Cafe locations at Walt Disney World Resort. You'll find one at Disney Springs; it's hard to miss because it has a smoking volcano on the top! The other is at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park by the main gate. This one has two entrances, one inside the park and one outside, which is great for those guests who don't have a theme park ticket. 

    In regards to your large party, you certainly can book three tables for six people each. You'll want to be logged in to your My Disney Experience account on March 9 by 6:00 AM EST. The only way it will work is if you have two other members of your party booking a table simultaneously. I spoke with the Disney Springs location today, and they informed me that there is no guarantee that the three tables will be together. If you want more information, feel free to give them a call at (407) 827-8500. However, there is another option! 

    I also spoke with Group Sales. She said both locations have rooms that seat large parties easily, and this way, you can all sit together (you can't book these tables online). The nice thing about this option is you can call and make your reservation now- there's no need to wait until the 60-day mark. However, you will need to sign an agreement, and there is a food and beverage minimum. She also mentioned that there could be limited availability, especially on the weekends. I recommend contacting them at (407) 828-6378 (their phone lines are open from 6-9 PM EST).

    It might also be worth checking into the Landry's Select Club, which is a loyalty program that offers rewards for a small fee. Here's another planDisney tip: save some room and get the Sparkling Volcano for dessert! It's a rich chocolate brownie mountain with ice cream on top. Sometimes the servers will yell, "VOLCANOOO!" as it comes out to the table!

    I hope this helps, Mary! If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask!
