    Planning a large, 22 people, family trip for Jan 2017. How will we make dining and FP+ reservations for that large of group? We have to call at 180 days, will we miss our "must have" restaurants if we have to call?

    Hi Ashley,

    What a great trip you have planned for January 2017! I love traveling with additional friends and family to the Walt Disney World Resort.

    First, you want to make sure everyone is linked to your itinerary on My Disney Experience. You can invite them to your trip and then they will be connected. Through this connection, you can then easily book your FastPass+ reservations. Remember you can book up to three per person, per day at one Walt Disney World park.

    As for Advance Dining Reservations, if you are breaking up into smaller groups, you should be able to book them online. We were a party of nine this past December and we had no issues booking our Advance Dining Reservations. I would first try booking online for the entire group.

    If this does not work, you can call Group at 407-939-1942. Remember even though you book the reservation together, you might not be at the same table. You will be near one another as few restaurants can hold 22 people at one table.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
