    Reservation (Polynesian Resort) I am having a tough time making online restaurant reservations for my family group of 15. Is there a telephone number I can use in that regard?

    Aloha, James! Welcome back to planDisney! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with your planning question!

    A magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort and Disney's Polynesian Village Resort with a large group of family and friends sounds like an oh-so-fun dream come true! I absolutely LOVE the vibe at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. The pool and fabulous dining options are enough to make this one of my favorite Resort Hotels, but when you add in the immersive tropical theming, its location near Magic Kingdom Park and the DOLE Whip, it puts this Resort Hotel over the top!

    As someone who has planned Walt Disney World Resort vacations for large parties of my family and friends, I understand how challenging it can be to make Advanced Dining Reservations. When I have difficulty booking reservations for a large party, one strategy I use is to break the large party up into two smaller parties. For instance, try searching for one table for eight people and one table for seven people at similar times. I have had success finding several great dining reservations this way! Then, when we would arrive to the restaurant a few minutes early, we informed the Cast Members that we were together in a large party, and although it is never a guarantee, if possible, they would try to seat us together or near each other. One of the standout restaurants from our last large group vacation was Biergarten Restaurant in EPCOT. The German cuisine, entertainment and liters of beer made this a dining experience that our two large parties will never forget! I suggest giving this fantastic restaurant a try!

    James, you can always call (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463 to speak with a helpful Cast Member if you need assistance booking your dining reservations. Just remember that you can make your dining reservations for the entire length of your stay (up to 10 days) 60 days before your arrival date.

    James, I'm wishing you and everyone in your party of 15 the most magical vacation ever! Please stop by any time with any of your planning questions.

    I hope to see ya real soon!
