    Hi! We are traveling to Disney World in May with two other families. There will be 7 adults and 4 children. Do we need to make special arrangements for dining reservations?

    Hi, Randee!
    I'm excited you have such a special opportunity to plan a trip with multiple families. You are going to have SO much fun!

    When it comes to setting up Advanced Dining Reservations, I'd recommend trying to snag dining reservations exactly 180 days ahead of your visit. On that day, you can try to snag reservations for eleven people on My Disney Experience starting at 6:00AM ET. If you have trouble finding tables for a group that size, I'd recommend calling when the dining reservation phone line opens an hour later, at 7:00AM ET. A Cast Member may have an easier time finding out if you can get a large table or sit your group in multiple tables at the same reservation time.

    I hope that helps with your planning! Let me know if I can help with anything else!

I’ve visited Disneyland and Walt Disney World multiple times and it’s fed into my belief that you’re never too old to have fun. I run when I can and recently earned my runDisney Coast to Coast medal! I also love photography and founded an online special needs community. Learn More About Jen
