    We are traveling with a party of 7. Some people are checking in 2/20 and some 2/21. Can someone checking in on 2/20 make advanced dining reservations for the whole family 60 days out from their check in? Or will we have to wait till the following day?

    Hi Megan,

    Ooh...your Disney dining reservation day is TOMORROW! How exciting! Just thinking about all of the fantastic options has my mouth watering! I'm sending pixie dust that you find the perfect reservations for your trip!

    I just returned home from a Walt Disney World Resort vacation and had the same situation. My hubby and I have five kiddos, but our oldest Mouseketeer was finishing up college finals and joined us mid-vacation. I'm happy to share that I had no issues making some dining reservations for a party of six and some for a party of seven when my 60-day planning window opened. As long as the Guest making the reservations has a Disney Resort hotel reservation, they'll be able to make dining reservations 60 days in advance of their check-in for the entire length of their stay (up to 10 days) for whatever party size they'd like.

    Did you know that when you connect via the Family & Friends list within My Disney Experience, you'll be able to share all of your reservations and join any Lightning Lanes or virtual queues together? It makes planning your Disney adventure easy peasy! Of course, one other benefit is that when just one of you purchases Memory Maker, you'll be able to view, share, and download the photos and videos collected by up to 25 fellow Guests on your Family & Friends list. That's a great way to stretch your Disney dollars and keep your memories alive for years to come!

    Thanks for bringing your question to us here at planDisney, Megan. I hope you and your entire crew have a truly magical...and delicious...vacation!
