    Hello! Regarding dining reservations...we have a group of 9 staying in two different family suites. We have one person making the reservations for all 9, if that person decides not to go to a reservation would that be a problem for everyone else?

    Hi Amy, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question. 

    I’m usually the one making the plans when I travel with my friends and family, which means that I’m the “lead guest” on any Disney dining reservations that I make, even when we’re all staying in different Walt Disney World Resort hotel rooms. 

    Sometimes, for various reasons, I can’t make it to one of the reservation’s I’ve made, my friends have been able to go anyway, even if it’s without me. All the people in your group will need to do is give your name and they should be able to be seated. That being said, I’d always recommend that you try to modify your reservations in the "My Plans" section of your My Disney Experience account for the reduced number of people in your party, or even to try to change the “lead Guest” to ensure that there are no issues when you check in for your meal.

    I hope my answer helps you plan a wonderful vacation for you and your gang. Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
