    Hi all, thanks for your help so far. My 180 days is vastly approaching, I am booked as a grand gathering, will the computer system allow me to make reservations for my entire group (13) or will I have to wait until 7am for the phone lines?

    Hi Deanna,

    Sounds like you're planning an awesome trip for your group! 

    I went online and it looks like the system will allow you to book a reservation online for a party of 13.  I also called 407-WDW-DINE and they confirmed that you can make online reservations beginning at 6 a.m. 

    The Cast Member I spoke with said that with a group that large, it may be best to call.  You could try online at 6 a.m. but if you are unable to get a reservation, wait until 7 a.m. and call 407-WDW-DINE.  If necessary, they can switch you over to a Cast Member who specializes in Grand Gathering dining reservations.

    To qualify for a Grand Gathering, your party must consist of a minimum of 8 people over the age of 3.  However, you need to include the total number in your party when making a reservation which means you'll need to count toddlers and infants even if they are not eating so they will allow enough room at the tables for everyone.

    Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
