    I am looking to book dining reservations for my family of 7, which is split into 3 reservations. Does everyone need to have tickets linked with their reservation/account to be able to make reservations in the park?

    Hi, Lynsey!

    Although your family is traveling on 3 separate reservations, book just 1 reservation for your entire party when booking your dining. This will ensure you can be seated at the same table. Just one person needs to make the dining reservation for the whole party. Disney dining reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance.

    While park tickets are not required to make a dining reservation, you will need valid park admissions if you plan to dine in any of the theme parks. You can purchase your theme park tickets as late as "day-of" but I suggest you purchase your tickets ahead of time and have them linked to your My Disney Experience account. This will allow you to make your Fastpass+ selections up to 30 days in advance (60 days in advance for guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel).

    Wishing you a magical vacation in Walt Disney World, as well as lots of great dining! Enjoy!
