    If we want to make a reservation at a restaurant and sit with people that are on our trip with us but in a separate party; how do we make the reservations?

    Hiya Lillian and welcome to planDisney!

    For this Louisiana girl, food is my number one love language. It's so nice to sit down with friends and family for a good meal at The Most Magical Place on Earth and talk about our plans for the upcoming day or recap our adventures later in the evening. Making your Advance Dining Reservations early is going to give your 2 parties the best chance possible to eat together.

    You have a couple of options available to you to make those reservations for everyone. 

    1. You can make them for the whole group. Depending on the number of people dining, you may be able to reserve a table with no issue. I've observed that restaurants like Chef Art Smith's Homecomin' in Disney Springs had no problem accommodating my part of 10. But for restaurants like Yak & Yeti Restaurant in Animal Kingdom Theme Park where the largest available party we could book at the time was 5, I've got another trick.

    2. You and another adult with a My Disney Experience account should book 2 separate reservations at the same location for the same time. You can then arrive together for your meal. Be sure to get there a little early and speak to the Cast Member at the front. They may be able to seat y'all together or at least near each other. 

    Lillian good luck with your dining endeavors. If you have any other questions please feel free to come back for another chat!

    Happy planning and happier snacking!
