    Our family of 9 is planning a Disney vacation a year + away. Can 1 person book dining reservations (character dining) for our entire party of 9 and some dining reservations for less people (ie couples for date nights) all at the 60 day out book window?

    Hello Donna! From one Pennsylvanian to another, welcome to planDisney! I’m happy to help with your question about (delicious) Disney Dining!

    Yes, one member of your party can make dining reservations for your entire party. I’ll walk you through two different ways to make your reservation. First, we’ll look at how to find out what’s available for nine Guests. Let’s begin with the My Disney Experience app. When you open the app, tap on the tile that states, “Reserve Dining.” Next, you’ll select the number of people that will dine. Then, you’ll be prompted to select your preferred dining date and window of time for dining. After you enter that information, all of the dining availability for nine people will be visible on your screen. You’ll select your dining location of preference and then follow the prompts to finalize your reservation.

    Now, let’s take a look at how to pick a specific dining location. Again, begin with the My Disney Experience app. This time, start by tapping the magnifying glass. When the search bar appears, enter the name of the restaurant you want to enjoy! When the restaurant appears, tap it! On the next screen, tap “Reserve Dining.” Then proceed with the prompts, similar to above, to reserve your dining.

    The first method (above) that I shared is a great feature because the app will let you know what is currently available for the size of the dining party you entered! That way you don’t have to randomly enter restaurants hoping to find a reservation for nine!

    Enjoy your Disney Dining experiences, Donna! And remember to mark that all-important 60-day date on your vacation planning calendar!

    Dreams do come true!
