    Group of 15 coming 9/28-10/3. Will getting ADRs at the in demand restaurants be difficult for a group this large? Have heard that getting an ADR at places like Cindy's castle and LeCellier is practically impossible to begin with. Will our party # hurt us?

    Hi Gayle!  In the past years we often traveled with 16 for our family reunions.  The important thing to remember when planning for the larger groups is to call on the first day possible for your dining reservations which is 180 days now.  Mark that on your calendar and be up and out of bed early to start the process.  Be flexible with the times and do have second choices ready.  Start with the most popular dining locations as they will book up the quickest. To make Disney dining reservations please call 407-939-3463.

    Another important thing to remember is to not worry about sitting everyone at one table.  We actually found it better that we would have two or three tables versus one large one.  It allowed the family to converse among each other easily at smaller tables.  We had name cards that we put in a hat before each meal and drew names as to who would sit together and of course small children would remain with parents but other then that it was a toss up. We loved that as we sat and  talked with different family members at each sitting through-out the vacation!
