    We have a group of 8 and plan to have two rooms at two different resorts for the same period of time. All members of our group will be on both reservations with our tickets and meal package on 1 reservation. How do we handle room keys-entry dice all we be

    Hi, Lynda!

    A big old gathering in Walt Disney World with friends sounds like a lot of fun! I hope I can help you with the planning a bit.  Let's get started!

    To begin, each party will have to have their own resort reservation with their park tickets and Disney Dining Plan credits on their own reservation.  The MagicBands for "Family A" will have their own thing going on, as will "Family B." 

    When booking your dining reservations, one party should book for all 8 guests, this way you will all sit together. Tell your server that you will need 2 separate checks, and let him/her know how you want the checks divided.  This way each family can use their dining credits and pay for any extras during your meals (appetizers, specialty drinks, etc.)

    If you would like to book your FastPass+ times all at once, you will want to link "Family A" and "Family B" though Friends and Family on each family's My Disney Experience. (If you do this before booking your dining, you can add their names to the reservation). You can name a point person to book all the FastPass+ times, or each family can do their own if you do not want to coordinate your times, it is up to you.

    If you find all of this to be too confusing, simply call (407)W-DISNEY to chat with a friendly cast member who will be able to book everything for you. Have someone from the other family with you, you should each have your credit cards ready for the deposits, put your phone on speaker and you can have a group chat with the cast member and get it all booked. 

    Lots of families travel together, so this can be worked out, no worries! Enjoy your vacation in Walt Disney World.
