    Diane from FL Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    I want to reserve a popular table seating restaurant for 4 adults as soon as my booking opens 60 days before our DVC reservation. Can any adult in my party book the reservation or only me as the planning manager?

    Hi there, Diane! Welcome to planDisney and Welcome Home! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with your planning question. It's so fun to get to chat with a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member!

    Before you know it, you'll be arriving at your fabulous Disney Vacation Club Resort, ready to begin your magical adults-only adventure. Woohoo! I know you must be getting so excited, and since your 60-day mark is quickly approaching, I know that you are busy completing your dining and Enchanting Extras Collection must-do lists. Now, let's tie up those loose planning ends and chat about any vacation's most important topic: the food.

    As long as you and everyone in your travel party are linked on your Family & Friends list, any adult in your party will be able to make your party's dining reservations on the My Disney Experience website or app. And as long as everyone in your party is properly linked to your DVC Resort reservation and that reservation is linked on My Disney Experience, anyone in your party will be able to make dining reservations for your entire party for your entire length of stay, up to ten days. Happy booking, Diane!

    If for some reason, you are unable to book your must-do dining experience, I recommend that you try, try and try again. I have actually had great success making hard-to-get dining reservations by checking for availability about one to two days in advance while I am enjoying my Walt Disney World Resort vacation. In fact, I snagged a dinner reservation for my family and me at Be Our Guest Restaurant less than an hour before the reservation time! If that doesn't work for you, check and see if you can add your party to a walk-up list at your favorite restaurant using the Mobile Dine Walk-Up Availability on the My Disney Experience app. Bon appetit!

    I hope this was helpful, Diane, and I hope you and your travel party have the most magical time at The Most Magical Place on Earth! If you have any questions about linking your Guests to your Family & Friends list, when to book your dining reservations or any other planning questions along the way, just let me know. You've got a friend in me!

    See ya real soon,
