    My family of 4 have hotel reservations and will book dining soon. My sister and her family of 5 will meet us from Miami, she doesn't have a hotel yet. Can we book to include all of us even though she doesn't have a hotel?

    Hiya Suzann!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for bringing us another one of your fantastic questions!

    You will be happy to know that you do not need Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservations in order to make advance Disney dining reservations. You will be able to include your entire family in your dining reservations even if your sister does not yet have a Disney Resort hotel reservation. Woo-hoo!

    You can begin to make dining reservations 180 days in advance of your arrival for the entire length of your stay (up to 10 days). You will be able to make your advance dining reservations online or by calling (407) WDW-DINE/(407) 939-3463.

    Quick Tip: The Disney dining reservations phone line opens up at 7:00 a.m. ET. If you decide to make your dining reservations online you be able to do so at 6:00 a.m. ET.

    Suzann, I’m glad I was able to answer your question about advance dining reservations. If you have any more questions please do not hesitate to visit the Moms Panel again. We are always here to help make your Walt Disney World Resort vacations unforgettable!

    Wishing you Endless Magic,
