    So, I haven’t had to worry about keeping track of other people in my family at Disneyland. When I make restaurant reservations at Disney worldf, do i have to have their names in my account too?

    Hi William!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We're glad that you popped in with another vacation planning question! We really do love to help!

    No worries about your dining reservations! During the dining reservation process, you'll be required to select one person as the lead for the reservation (normally, this is the person making the reservation) and you can optionally add others to the reservation. No need to specify everyone if you're not connected to them already in My Disney Experience. If you do decide to add others from your My Family & Friends list, they'll have the benefit of also being able to see the dining reservation details. This makes it super easy to coordinate if you all happen to be in different areas of the parks or meeting up at the restaurant. They can simply check the My Disney Experience mobile app to see where and when to be there!

    Don't forget: Walt Disney World dining reservations are available up to 180 days prior. Some of the most popular restaurants do fill up fast but don't fret if your top choices are already booked up. Many guests modify their reservations as their plans firm up. Check back often and I'm hoping you'll be able to dine as some delightfully delicious locations!

    I hope this helps! Be sure to let us know if we can help with any additional planning details!
