    Hello! I’m planning for a family gathering in WDW 9/7-9/14/13 and I’m in charge of making all ADR’s with DP for 6 adults(one vegetarian) and 3 children ages 11,9,8. It's a little overwhelming, Any advice? Should we do TS for lunch or QS for dinner? *sigh*

    Planning for extended family trips can be overwhelming, Jocelyn.  But something tells me you are up to the challenge.  You are, after all, coming to just the right place for advice!  As for your reservations, I would suggest planning for a quick-service lunch and table-service dinners.  Doing it that way would allow your group to have some free time during the day and come together each evening for a group dinner during which you could all discuss the day's events.  You shouldn't have any trouble accommodating your party of nine at most Disney restaurants.  And the good news is that most restaurants also have at least one vegetarian item on the menu, so there is a hurdle you needn't worry too much about.  Because I'm sure your group will want to be seated all at one table, it's important to schedule your reservations as soon as possible, as close to 180 days as you can.  And if you need more help along the way, you know where to turn.  Good luck!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
