    We have 12 people in our party and have made reservations for them all. My question is what if three of our party are late to our fast past time, do we lose the slot for all of us? And is this the same for food reservations? Thank you so much for your hel

    Hi Jennifer! I'm so happy you've come to the Disney Parks Mom's Panel today with your question. My husband and I have 8 kids and 9 grandkids so we are always traveling to Walt Disney World with a large group as well. That is a big job to schedule reservations and so nice of you to make plans for your entire group. I, too, put together the schedule for our family and I have wondered about the exact same thing when it comes to FastPass+ times and Advanced Dining Reservations. I am happy to tell you that you will definitely NOT lose any of your FastPass+ or Dining Reservation times if some people in your group are late. The rest of you can go ahead and enjoy your originally planned time slots. Another thing that might put your mind at ease is that often, even with Advanced Dining Reservations, there could be a short 10-15 minute wait to be seated. So you might end up with a little bit of wiggle room there. Just between me and you, I always try to keep the 'wiggle room' possibility to myself to make sure my family doesn't think they have extra time and be late for sure. That's our little secret, though, OK?  *wink* 

    Thanks for visiting us and please come back if there is anything else we can do to help with your planning. Have a wonderful day!
