    We are going Memorial Day weekend for my sons 21st birthday. A bunch of his friends are also going to surprise them. They are staying at another hotel on property. How can I link the reservations? Can I make reservations for 20 people at restaurants?

    Hiya Lisa and welcome to planDisney!

     A 21st birthday with all of your family and friends in The Most Magical Place on Earth sounds beyond perfect. He's in for the best shock of his life. Let's get y'all locked and loaded for the best birthday ever!

    You'll want to get all linked up in the Family & Friends List in the My Disney Experience app. Open the app and tap the icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the page. Click on My Profile and then tap Show My Linking Code. You and the other Guests in your party with My Disney Experience apps can exchange Manual Codes and enter them into the Family & Friends List. You'll then be able to share plans with each other!

    Making Advanced Dining Reservations for a party of 20 can take a little finessing. You could try breaking the group into smaller sections and have multiple party members make reservations at the same restaurant around the same time, show up a little early, and speak to the Cast Members about being seated together. It may be best to call 407-939-3463 and speak to a Cast Member directly. They may be able to come up with some solid solutions. 

    Since your son is turning 21, It's the perfect time to put on his Happy Birthday button gotten from Guest Services inside the parks or the Front Desk of your Disney Resorts Collection hotel and visit EPCOT for a few drinks around the world. With the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival in full swing, you can find some amazing floral-inspired cocktails to celebrate him turning the page into full adulthood. And the best part is the only reservations required are Theme Park Reservations in the Disney Park Pass System! 

    Lisa, if you can pull off this surprise you officially take the birthday cake!  If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back and see me again!

    Happy planning!
