    Not sure if our grown daughter will be going with us. Should we make ADR's that include her and if she is unable, show up at restaurant with one less or not include her on ADRs and try to add her if she is able to go? Don't want to risk losing our ADRs.

    Hi Robin,

    My fingers are crossed that your daughter is able to join you for your upcoming Disney World trip. It is always a treat to have friends and a family with you to enjoy the magic.

    Personally I think it is always a better idea to start with the highest number of guests you believe will be dining with you. It is much easier to let the hostess know a member of your party is unable to come, and make your seating for a smaller number, than try and add an additional guest. For example, if it is just you and your spouse, and your daughter would make the seating three, it may be difficult to move you from a two seat table to a four seat table. While most Disney restaurants will do their best to accommodate a last minute added diner, it may create a delay in your seating. Plus she may be more inclined to join you if she knows you do not have to change your reservation at the last minute for her. Don't forget reservations can be made 180 days in advance by calling 407-939-3463.

    Have a wonderful time!
