    My husband and I are taking our children and grandchildren to Disney World in November. There are 11 of us. How do we book dinner reservations? We don't have to be at one table but would like to be near each other.

    Hello Cheryl! Thanks for coming to visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You are giving the gift of "magic" to your children and grandchildren by planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Our past few visits have been multigenerational and we enjoyed every one of them! We, too, planned dinner reservations for our large group!

    The good news is that you are planning well in advance of your trip! Good job! You can begin making Disney Dining reservations 180-days prior to your arrival! For your planned visit in November, you can begin making your dining reservations on May 16, 2020. Many of the Disney Dining restaurants are very popular! I strongly recommend that you have your dining itinerary planned so that you are ready to make your dining reservations as close as possible to May 16!

    As far as that group of 11 goes, you are able to make reservations either over the phone by calling (407)939-3463 or by going online to the Disney Dining reservations page of the Walt Disney World Resort website. If you choose to go online you will be able to check the date, time, and availability for a party of 11 for any Disney Dining Restaurant. 

    Cheryl, be sure to mark your calendar for May 16, 2020! That will be an important day for your vacation planning! You can make online reservations as early as 6:00AM or phone reservations beginning at 7:00AM!
