    We have a reservation for the Garden Grill for 5 people on Saturday June 19. We are trying to get 4 more where our group can eat at the same time but we haven’t had any luck. Can you please help us? Our reservation for 5 is at 2:30. We can change the time

    Hi, there!

     Shelly, I'm so excited to hear you'll be traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort this week. And with a big group! You're sure to have BIG fun together. 

     I just love Character Dining Experiences. When my family has a reservation for one of these unique meals, I know my kids will fill their bellies and see their favorite Disney Characters, all in one place! What could be better than that?

     My family is visiting very soon too, and I've found dining reservations harder to come by than in previous years. We have a few dining reservations that I've been trying to modify for more convenient meal times, and I'm just having no luck at all! I'm sorry to hear you're experiencing difficulty too. My best advice is to keep checking for availability at Garden Grill Restaurant both on the online reservation system and on the My Disney Experience mobile app. When you check for availability, try modifying the dining times and the number in your party. You never know when someone's canceled plans may make new plans for your big group! If all else fails and you still don't have a reservation for the additional four Guests on the day of your visit to Garden Grill Restaurant, stop by the host stand earlier in the day and ask about same-day availability. With a little faith, trust, and pixie-dust, they may be able to accommodate your group!

     Have you purchased Memory Maker for your stay? I especially love using this Disney PhotoPass product when I'm traveling with a big group. With Memory Maker, everyone in your party can get in on the shot!

     Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Shelly. I'm wishing you a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
