    My husband and I along with 3 other couples are registered for the princess marathon in February. Three couples are staying on property.. Can one couple make dinner reservations for all eight of us? Thanks!

    Hi, Elizabeth! 

    I love hearing from fellow residents of the Palmetto State! When making Advanced Dining Reservations one person will be able to do this for all eight of you either online or by calling (407) WDW-DINE up to 180 days in advance. I suggest designating someone to be the "dining coordinator" for your group so all reservations are under the same name and listed under the same My Disney Experience Account. The hardest part will be mutually deciding on which Disney dining experiences you want to try!

    Here are some additional tips:
    - Book online at your convenience beginning 180 days in advance of your arrival and select a party size of eight. 
    - Select a dinner time slightly earlier than usual the night before your race.
    - Don't go crazy on the "carb-loading"! Though you will definitely want a meal of mostly carbs, keep your portions small. The last thing you want at race time is a full, heavy belly.

    Dining suggestions:
    -Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano in Disney's Hollywood Studios
    -Via Napoli at the Italy Pavilion in Epcot's World Showcase
    -Tony's Town Square Restaurant in Disney's Magic Kingdom
    - Portobello in Downtown Disney
    - Il Mulino New York Trattoria at the Swan Resort in the Epcot Resort Area

    I hope this information helps to give you a good start in planning your dining experiences, Elizabeth! Please do not hesitate to ask any additional questions you may have!

    Happy running & dining!
