    I have a group of 4 and my sister has a group of 5. We are staying at seperate disney resort but have the same dining plan. When making reservations can i just ask for dinner for 9 or should we book seperately? Which is less confussing for waiting staff?

    If you all want to dine together, sitting at the same table, then you should definitely ask for a reservation for 9 people. This way, Disney will know to have a table available that is large enough to seat all of you. If you make separate reservations, it is quite likely that there will not be a table large enough to seat a group of 9 all together.

    When you're at the restaurant, you can simply tell your server that you are all on the Disney Dining Plan, but that you'd like two separate checks. This is a very common situation; you server will have no trouble dealing with this. Once you have the separate checks, you should look at them to make sure that the proper number of credits have been deducted from each party's plan. This will also allow each part of the group to pay the appropriate gratuity for their part of the meal.

    Enjoy your family reunion!
