    I selected each family members name that's going to each dinner. The first night when at O'hanas for some reason it lets me choose the names for 2 guests but gives me an error when adding in the 3rd guest. It's a child's name that errors?

    Hi, Michael!

    That is great news that you snagged a reservation at 'Ohana. This amazing restaurant at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is super popular and fills up quickly, so good job! I have to learn to pace myself when dining here. The appetizers and salad are so good, I am full before the main course comes!

    When making Disney Dining Reservations, the guests' names really do not matter. The only name that truly matters is the first name on the reservation, as this is the person who manages the reservation. The guest names are nice to include if you want the reservation to show up on a separate family's My Disney Experience account, but besides that, you can just leave the guest names blank.

    During the reservation process, you will need a credit card to hold a dining time. (No shows will be charged a per guest fee, so cancel any reservations you will not be using.) Once you arrive, your server will be happy to utilize your Disney Dining Plan credits, dining discounts, or divide the check if traveling with other families.

    After dinner, head out to the beach and try to catch the Electrical Water Pageant on Seven Seas Lagoon or the "Happily Ever After" fireworks show from the Magic Kingdom. It's going to be a magical night for you and your family!
