    We will be traveling with another family and will have a large party, and we would like to dine together. Can we make dining reservations for 14 online, or will we need to call?

    Hi Lauren,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    It sounds like you are the lead trip planner for your group! This is quite an honor! Although you may be able to make reservations for 14 online, you may need to split your group into smaller groups for reservation purposes. The dining reservation system will not allow you to make multiple dining reservations within the same timeframe if you are the Guest managing all of those reservations.

    You could have three smaller groups with a different lead person for each group who makes the reservation. As long as those lead folks have their own My Disney Experience accounts, you each could make separate reservations for around the same time. Sometimes, I have been able to make multiple reservations from My Disney Experience if I select a different person who will manage each reservation. Going this route has only worked for me using My Disney Experience online, not in the My Disney Experience Mobile App.

    It may still be difficult to secure three reservations at the same dining location at around the same time. I always suggest trying to book those reservations within 15 minutes of each other. If you can only book part of your group initially, make the reservations you can and keep checking. Cancelations do happen and I always modify reservations up until right before we arrive.

    Lauren, in the past, I did have to contact a Cast Member by phone to get some help with making dining reservations but my group was 27. With a group of 14, you may be able to do it yourself with a little persistence. I am sending a little dining reservation pixie dust your way!

    Magic and memories,
