    I am traveling with 9 family members and wondered if I should make lunch reservations each day ?

    Hello Dianna!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are happy to continue to assist you plan magical memories for your upcoming family visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Whenever traveling with a large party I prefer to make reservations at a table-service restaurant for at least one meal during the day, usually lunch or dinner. This is a great way to get everybody together because large parties tend to split during the day while touring the parks. Don't forget that some restaurants are very popular and reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance! The fastest way to make reservations is by using the My Disney Experience mobile app, but you can also book online or call (407) 939-3463.

    It will all depend on your family’s preferences, but if you decide not to make reservations, some of my favorite quick-service locations for larger parties are Columbia Harbour House and Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café at Magic Kingdom Park, Sunshine Seasons and Liberty Inn at Epcot, ABC Commissary at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Satu’li Canteen at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

    Thank you for stopping by once again! I hope this helps you while planning and that you have a magical visit!
