    My parents 50th anniversary is on July 31, 2021. I am under the impression that our whole party will not be able to dine together. There are six of us and we wanted to dine at Sanaa. Could you let me know if this is an option?

    Hi Julie!

    Welcome to planDisney! How sweet of you to consider making an advanced dining reservation at Sanaa for your parents' 50th anniversary! How wonderful for them to be celebrating their 50th anniversary as we gear up for the 50th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort with The World's Most Magical Celebration.

    Since I have a resort reservation at about the same time, I checked and can see lunch reservation availability for a party of six at Sanaa on the date of your visit. So, you can certainly check when your dining reservation window opens. If you have a vacation package or resort hotel reservation, you can make advanced dining reservations 60-days prior to your visit for the length of your stay up to 10 days.

    If you try to make a reservation at Sanaa and there is no availability (it can get booked fast!), try making a reservation for a party of four and a party of two at about the same time (within 15 minutes of one another). Then, when you arrive to the restaurant, ask the Cast Members if they can seat you together. They may not be able to do so, but we have had some success with this strategy when we have asked in the past. Cast Members try their best. If Sanaa is completely booked when you search, I also recommend California Grill. The views of Magic Kingdom from the restaurant are spectacular! 

    As you continue to plan, know also that you can use Mobile Dine Check-in, Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering, and Disney MagicMobile service. I also suggest that you check Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability if you cannot secure as many advanced dining reservations as you would like. Although Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability was limited on my visit last week, I was able to snag a reservation for Liberty Tree Tavern in Magic Kingdom!

    Julie, keep making those plans! And if you need to create a little extra magic for your parents' anniversary, contact a Dream Maker at Disney Floral & Gifts. This truly is a special occasion that needs unforgettable memories. Sending wishes to the Evening Star for your parents to enjoy many more years of love and laughter!

    Magic and memories,
