    Traveling with a group of 12. We have our rooms through our contacts but was wondering if there were group numbers that could be assigned. Then when we make dinner reservations using the number they would know names and ages to accommodate us. 1 table

    Hi, Paul!

    I am not sure I am totally understanding what you are asking, so let me give you some general information about making your dining reservations.

    First of all, with a party your size, you should call (407)WDW-DINE to reserve your dining. Since you all want to dine together at one table, you will want to make just one reservation. Some locations may not be able to accommodate a table this size, but the friendly Cast Member will assist you. A credit card will be needed to hold the reservation, and a fee will be incurred if your party is a no-show or cancelled later than 24 hours prior to your reservation.

    Next, you can link all your My Disney Experience accounts through Friends and Family so all dining reservations can be shared with all your guests. This is not required, but might save you a bit of work as everyone can look up the plans on their own accounts.

    Finally, you can split checks when dining so each party can pay for their own meals. Simply let your server know how you want the checks divided. An automatic gratuity of 18% will be added on since your party has 6 or more guests.

    When you call for your reservations, all this will be explained in detail and hopefully you can plan your dining easily. With large parties, I always encourage buffets as much as possible as everyone can usually find something they can enjoy, and your dining experience should be much more expedient without having to take all those orders! But any server will be happy to accommodate you when ordering off a menu as well.

    Wishing your entire party a magical vacation in Walt Disney World!

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
