    Hi! I am trying to make an ADR for Sci-Fi Dine-In for September 15th. There are no reservations for 3, but I am wondering if anyone has found success making a 2 person reservation, and a 1 person reservation, then asking at the podium to sit together?

    Hi, Jillian!  It's always a pleasure to help a fellow Pennsylvanian out here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am so excited to hEAR that you are planning a meal at Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant!  This is one of my family's favorite places to grab a bite to eat when we visit Disney's Hollywood Studios.  Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant has one of the most fun and unique restaurant themes in all of Walt Disney World Resort.  Here, you can have a seat in a car-shaped booth, and enjoy a tasty meal while watching 1950s-style sci-fi movie clips.  The entire dining experience is a blast, so I hope that you will able to make a reservation to try it yourself.

    If you are having difficulty making a dining reservation for your entire party, sometimes you may have better luck splitting your party up into two smaller groups.  When you check-in for your reservations, you can then ask the Cast Members if it would be possible for your two groups to be seated together.  While there is no guarantee that you will be seated together, in my experience, the Cast Members will do their best to accommodate you.

    In the meantime, keep checking to see if any additional reservations become available.  Guests change their dining plans all the time, so you never know when you might see that perfect reservation pop up.  The My Disney Experience mobile app makes it easy to check for dining reservations on the go, even up until the last minute while you are on vacation.

    I'm sending lots of positive pixie-dusted thoughts your way for all of your dining plans to work out.  If you have any other questions as you get ready for your vacation, please visit us again!  Have a magical day!
