    Staying at the Polynesian,can I make dining reservations for my family( 5 people) but also include friends(3) that we would like to dine with one night in Epcot that aren't staying at the Polynesian?Can I make a reservation for 8 people 180 days out?

    Hi Linda,

    Or, perhaps I should say, "Aloha!" You're going to LOVE staying at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. Not only is the location perfect, being right on the monorail, but the theming is amazing and it's an absolutely gorgeous Resort hotel!

    A Walt Disney World Resort vacation is magical anytime, but when you're able to enjoy special moments with family AND friends, you are sure to make memories to last a lifetime! I'm happy to let you know that you'll be able to make an advanced dining reservation for eight people when your booking window opens even if there are only five people staying in your room, and your friends will be able to join you for dinner! Epcot has so many delicious dining options; have fun deciding which restaurant is best for you!

    At some point in the evening, I'd recommend using the complimentary My Disney Experience app to locate a nearby PhotoPass photographer who would be happy to take a picture of your entire group to help you remember your time together!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Linda, and please let us know if we can help with anything else. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
