    Hi Jackie, I was just reading about you. I also live in La. (Slidell) We are planning a trip in May 2012. Family may be coming but we will have separate bookings with dining plan for each family. When we reserve our dinners can we sit at the same table?

    Hi Chere!

         I'm just about 45 minutes from Slidell - we are practically neighbors!!!  So, I've just gotta ask - what is up with  that Castle House on the water?  I remember it as a child and I still smile every time we drive past it.  Well, I guess I should get back to your question -sorry! 

         If your group consists of eight or more guests ages three and up, you will be considered a Grand Gathering and can get special assistance with booking your meals.  For more info, just click here!  As long as a table is large enough to accommodate you, you are absolutely welcome to be seated together.  I would have one person serve as a leader (possibly you?) and coordinate with everyone on when and where you want to eat. has menus and reviews of nearly every restaraunt on property!  You will need to know the ages of everyone in your group and who will be using the dining plan.  Once you have all of your info together, call 1-407-WDISNEY at 7:00 AM (that's 6:00 AM in our neck of the woods) and make all of your Advanced Dining Reservations.  It does NOT matter that your party will be booked in different rooms, with separate reservations.  You will be given a confirmation number for your group, which I would suggest putting into an organized table or chart for everyone to share.

         Best of luck and enjoy!!!

    Much pixie dust,
