    Hi! In Oct, we’ll be staying at the Boardwalk and my parents at the Swan. When I make dining reservations 60 days out, can I add them to our dining reservations?

    Hi Jennifer!

    Welcome back to planDisney! I’m so grateful for all the visits we have made to the Walt Disney World Resort with my parents. Watching my kiddos hold hands with my mom as they walk through Fantasyland is one of the greatest gifts I could give to both of them, and I hope my kids grow up to cherish these vacations with their grandparents.

    You will be happy to know that even though they aren’t on your resort reservation you can include your parents in your Advance Dining Reservations! I will mention that larger parties can be harder to book, and right now most locations are not booking tables larger than 6, so have a plan and make your reservations right at 6 AM Eastern on your 60-day mark. Pro Tip: Since you can make Advance Dining Reservations for the length of stay, up to 10 days, try to plan for more popular dining locations toward the end of your visit. Also, when doing your booking, remember you don’t have to book in chronological order. Some folks begin by booking day 1, then day 2, and so forth. But you can jump ahead and book day 5 or 6, and you’ll find better availability, so skip and ahead first and book your top choices, then go back and book locations that tend to have more tables toward the beginning of your trip.

    Sending you pixie dust, Jennifer, for those perfect Advance Dining Reservations! Let me know if you have additional questions before your visit, we are here to help!
