    I'm planning a family trip in Nov but one of my guests is not sure about being able to make it. Should I make a reservation for 3 and take 1 off if they don't end up being able to come or make a reservation for 2 and add 1 more later?

    Hi there Laura!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited to hEAR that you are planning a Walt Disney World vacation for this November.  I would definitely recommend that you make your Advanced Dining Reservation for 3 and then modify it later if the Guest is unable to come.  I have always found that it's much more challenging to add Guests to an Advanced Dining Reservation rather than to decrease the total number of Guests in the dining party. 

    I hope this helps. Please don't hesitate to stop by again with any additional questions that you may have. Best wishes for a magical trip, Laura!

    Bon Appétit,
