    My family of 3 are going for our first vacation in Oct. We have our reservations and are doing the dining plan. Happily my sister who is not on our reservation she was going to join us. She has not made any reservations. Do I book for 4 in our ADR?

    Hi Beth,

    Thank you for visiting us and we're happy to help plan your very first Walt Disney World vacation. How exciting! If I understand your question correctly, yes, I would proceed with booking your Advanced Dining Reservations to include your sister. It won't be a problem for the three of you to redeem Disney Dining Plan credits while your sister pays for meals out of pocket at the same seating. Simply notify the server of your plans and they will provide two checks at the end of the meal. I'll provide you a link to this year's participating Disney Dining Plan locations for reference.

    Many times the dining locations are so busy, it becomes quite difficult to accommodate last minute changes to dining parties. It would be wise to book your reservations for the correct number of guests ahead of time to avoid any potential disappointments or long waits when arriving at restaurants.

    Wishing you a MAGICAL vacation, Beth, and feel free to visit us again with any follow up questions.
