    Sara from MI Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    With the new dining reservation system, how do I select the members of my dining party so that the dining reservation shows up in their My Disney Experience as well?

    It's always a delight when you stop by planDisney, Sara! 

    Thanks for bringing your question our way! 

    Whenever anyone mentions dining at Walt Disney World Resort, my ears perk up. It's a topic close to my heart, and I could go on and on about my favorite dining options around Walt Disney World Resort! From scrumptious buffet offerings at Boma - Flavors of Africa to an incredible Polynesian-themed dinner with endless 'Ohana Noodles at 'Ohana, dining at The Most Magical Place on Earth brings people together.  

    I've been playing around with the new dining reservation system, thanks to my upcoming vacation, and I quite enjoy the changes. I love that if you have a restaurant you are interested in booking a dining reservation at, you're given the time slots separated by Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. And I especially love that only the available time slots pop up for the reservation you're looking for, rather than clicking a time and hoping it has availability.

    Sara, once you've made your dining reservation, you're able to go back to it in your My Disney Experience account and add your party to the reservation. Below are the steps to do this: 

    -Please open your My Disney Experience Mobile App.
    -Select the three horizontal lines (☰) on the bottom right. 
    -Choose Future Plans.
    -Locate your dining reservation and tap on it.
    -Select Update Party to add other members joining you.

    This option will bring up Guests you are linked to through your Family & Friends list. Once you've updated your party, you can finalize and confirm the selection, and they'll be able to see the reservation on their My Disney Experience accounts. Yay!

    I try to book one character dining meal during our Walt Disney World Resort vacations. It's a great way to meet our favorite pals without waiting in line, and you get to enjoy delicious food! My favorite is starting the day enjoying a meal at Topolino's Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera. It offers Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends, and even though I have picky eaters in my crew, the prix-fixe menu has delicious choices to please everyone in the family!

    Wishing you an enchanting visit, Sara!
