    How do I make a reservation for a family of 16? Many twins. We all have our COVID shots except small children and we would like to sit near each other. Looking at Living Seas and others at MK and HS in mid July. Can I call the restaurants directly?

    Hello, Denise, and welcome to planDisney!

    Planning a Disney vacation for your family sounds like me planning a trip for my entire family, minus the twins. When my family of 6 goes to Walt Disney World Resort with my parents, plus my siblings' families, there are 16 of us altogether. I love having a big family, but it can make planning difficult at times. 

    Currently, all Guests are able to make dining reservations online up to 60 days in advance. I always make advanced dining reservations when my family visits Walt Disney World, whether it's breakfast at our hotel or dinner in one of the parks. I'm sure you've checked availability for the dining locations that you wish to dine at in the parks. Each family may need to try making dining reservations within the same timeframe. If you all are able to secure reservations, plan on speaking to a Cast Member at the restaurant when you arrive about sitting together.

    You're welcome to call the restaurants directly to speak with a Cast Member about reservations for your party. They may also be able to provide more information on all 16 members of your family sitting near each other. Since you mentioned Coral Reef Restaurant at Epcot, I wanted to let you know that their phone number is (407) 939-5277. 

    Before your visit to Walt Disney World this summer, you may want to check out our Panel Extras. The planDisney Panel shared our personal recommendations on what to order at some of our favorite restaurants. Take a look at What Would I Order? if you'd like any help deciding where and what to eat at Walt Disney World.

    Denise, please let us know if we can help you with any other questions before your visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth.

    Have a magical day!
