    Our party of nine is going to Disney World in October. When I tried to make dining reservations for our groups, I could find no times available anywhere. When I change the party size to 5, a few options show up. Is there hope for a group of 9?

    Hello Angela! Traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort with a large party makes for such a great time! And a reservation at a favorite Disney Dining location makes it even better!

    I have two suggestions to offer that you might find helpful. When attempting to book a large party reservation online, you might receive a message stating that the system is unable to process a reservation online for your number of Guests. If that is the case, call (407)824-1391 for assistance in booking your reservation. Another strategy I've used is to split the party into two smaller groups and make two reservations for the same time or within a few minutes of each other. Upon arriving at the restaurant I'll request that our two groups be seated close to each other or I'll ask if it's possible to be seated together. Depending upon the restaurant and the current demand, the Cast Members might be able to accommodate your request! 

    Angela, I hope this advice is helpful as you search for the perfect Disney Dining experience for your group of nine! Also, be sure to check out the Know Before You Go section of the Walt Disney World Resort website. There is some really helpful information for Guests who are looking to make dining reservations!
