    I made reservations for Cinderella's RT for xmas @ 7:10p for 4.I need to add my son(who is now going).I modified my reserv for 3 and guys eating somewhere else.what do i do? i really want dinner together.i just found a reserv for 2 but thats at 5:45p.

    Oh, Tianna, that is quite the predicament!  I sympathize with your situation, particularly since the meal you describe is on Christmas day.  I would want to eat as a family too on Christmas. 

    The way I see it, there are two different ways you could handle this.  First I would call Disney Dining at (407) WDW-DINE daily from now until your vacation to see if you can increase your original reservation to five.  If this is not possible, keep the 7:10 pm reservation for three and add the 5:45 pm reservation for two.  When the pair shows up at 5:45 pm on the day of the reservation, ask if it would be possible for them to seat you all together.  Know in advance, however, that this may not be possible. 

    The other option, which may be more realistic, is to plan a lovely brunch or lunch together at another restaurant earlier in the day on Christmas.  Then it wouldn't be so difficult if you have to split up briefly for your evening meal. 

    I'll keep my fingers crossed that a reservation for five will open up at Cinderella's Royal Table.

    Best wishes to your family for a truly magical holiday visit to Walt Disney World!
