    I made all of my ADR this weekend and was excited that I as able to get in all the restaurants that I wanted, however, some of the ADR's came back with "may not be seated together" and we are only a party of 3. Will they actually split us up?

    Hi there, Kelly!

    A party of three is absolutely unlikely to be split up. However, Disney needs to ensure that it addresses every contingency, so at particular times of the year during specific meals at certain restaurants, you'll find that language tacked on to every reservation.

    Disney does its level best to keep its Guests happy, and strives to make every experience a positive one. However, there have been times when parties have been split up, much to the surprise of the Guests. To eliminate this possibility, Disney provides that language as necessary.

    On a personal note, I'll tell you that this did happen to me once when I was traveling with a party of ten. We were split up into a group of six and a group of four, but were seated near enough to one another that we could still talk to one another without disturbing the entire restaurant. In the event that a party is split up, your Cast Members will work to keep the different "parts" as close together as possible.

    Have a wonderful time!

    See you later, celebrator,
