    I’m trying to finalize my family’s upcoming trip. There are 17 of us, but we are coming in at different times. As such, some dining reservations won’t actually include me even though MDE has me listed as the organizer. Will this be a problem for my fam?

    Hi Sheena,

    I'm so excited for your whole family to be able to experience the magic of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation together! You guys are going to have a BLAST! I just returned from a trip with 12 of my extended family members, and we had such a wonderful time creating so many special memories together! Now that we're home, we're really enjoying reliving all the moments through our PhotoPass photos. If you haven't already, I'd definitely recommend purchasing Memory Maker so that you'll be able to view, download, and share all of the photos that are captured on your trip! 

    As for your question about your dining reservations, I'm happy to let you know that your family members shouldn't have any trouble enjoying some delicious meals before you arrive. If you'd like, you may pull up the dining reservations in your My Disney Experience account and choose the individuals from your Friends & Family List who are dining at each particular meal. Even without doing that, though, they should be able to simply give the Cast Member at the restaurant your name and the time of the reservation. For extra assurance that all will go smoothly, you could provide them with the confirmation number of the reservation.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sheena, and definitely let us know if you have any other questions as you're getting ready for your trip. We're always happy to help! I hope that you and your entire family have a truly magical...and delicious...vacation!
