    I originally had 10 people coming but now we are only 9. When I booked dining, I booked 2 reservations of 5 each for every meal we booked. Do I need to amend one of the reservations down to 4 for each reservation of can i just tell them at check in?

    Hi there, Michael! 

    It’s always a delight when you stop by planDisney with your question for us. 

    You’re going to have so much fun bringing a party of 9 to The Most Magical Place on Earth. I recently took my extended family of 8 and now they can’t get enough of the magic. You already sound like a planning pro by making two separate dining reservations for your large crew! When I made two separate dining reservations for my family, I called Disney Dining to add a request on my reservation to see if we could be seated all together whenever possible. Although this is completely at the discretion of the restaurants and depends on availability, most of the time my family and I were able to sit together which was magical.

    Hakuna Matata, Michael! -It means no worries! I called and spoke to a Cast Member who told me you will not need to downsize your dining reservations. As long as you show up for your reservation, you will be good to go. If you have to modify your reservation for 9, you may end up not having any availability and because you have a large group going, it’s best to leave the reservations as is. 

    I hope you have a character dining experience booked. I love being able to take selfies with Mickey and his pals while practicing social distancing! 

    Have an enchanting time, Michael!
