    I am planning a trip for March, registered as a grand gathering. Have dining plan and am concerned about making advance reservations. Can't use online because party is bigger then 8? Afraid I wouldn't get what I want because of size of party. Suggestions?

    Hello Megan, I can understand your frustration but you do have a couple things going in your favor.  First, you are booked for a vacation that currently does not have a free dining promotion in effect.  I believe free dining significantly increases dining reservations with those who would not normally use the dining plan.  Second, the dining window is expanding back to 180 days effective October 27, 2009.

    To increase your chances of getting the reservations you are hoping for, I would suggest you mark your calendar for October 27th and call 407-WDW-DINE promptly at 7:00 a.m. EST.  This is the earliest anyone vacationing in March can call for their dining reservations.

    Good luck and have a magical grand gathering!  Diane
