    Once my 60+ day window starts for an on-property stay, am I able to make a reservation larger than my group size? We are planning on meeting up with friends who live local to Disney on our visit, & would like to eat meals with them if possible. TIA!

    Hi Joelle, 

    Welcome back to planDisney and thank you so much for asking us another question!

    We have lots of friends who live in the Central Florida area and we always love including them in our vacation plans whenever we visit Walt Disney World Resort. Sometimes our friends can only meet up with us for meals, but it really is the perfect time to catch up and have a bite (and a sip!) together. 

    I’m happy to say that you can make a Disney Dining Reservation for a party that is larger than the one currently travelling with you, regardless of whether you’re staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. Just please bear in mind that some locations may not be able to accommodate all of you at one table, especially if you’re a group larger than 8-10 people. And, if your friends can’t join you for one of your meals, please don’t forget to modify your dining reservation so that it reflects your smaller party – you’ll be giving other Guests the chance to snag a coveted spot, too!

    As always, please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. We’re always happy to help the perfect Disney Day!

    Have a Magical Day,
