    We are planning a family trip for Christmas 2023 there will be about 20 of us. Some of us want to book the magic kingdom Christmas Day lunch. How do we do this and what day can you book it from? Thanks!

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Jennifer. I'm so glad you stopped by!

     I can't think of a better place to celebrate Christmas Day than at Magic Kingdom Park. With festive decor, joyful music, and seasonal scents, you'll certainly have a fa-la-la-la-fabulous visit! 

     Sometimes, for special occasions (like Christmas Day!), select restaurants at the Walt Disney World Resort will offer exclusive menus. Those details have not yet been released for this holiday season, and certainly not yet for 2023! My best advice is to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog. It's your best resource for news and updates about Disney Parks and destinations! As you near your 2023 Christmastime visit, you'll see announcements made on the Disney Parks Blog about seasonal offerings. 

     You can make dining reservations at the Walt Disney World Resort up to 60-days in advance. If you'll be a Guest of the Disney Resorts Collection, you can make your dining reservations for your stay (up to 10-days) 60-days in advance from your check-in date. That means that some of your dining reservations can potentially be made 70-days ahead of time! When you are 60-days out from your arrival date, you can begin making your dining reservations online using My Disney Experience or by calling the Dining Reservations line at 0800 16 90 749. With a party of 20 (how fun!), I recommend making your dining reservations over the phone. A friendly Cast Member will be happy to help you plan for your big group!

     My absolute favorite Christmastime offering at the Walt Disney World Resort is the Candlelight Processional at the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays. This beautiful retelling of the Christmas story is not to be missed!

     I hope this was helpful, Jennifer. Be sure to visit us again soon with any new questions you may have about your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! We'd love to help you plan a magical stay.
