    Trying to make dining reservations for a group of 12 plus a baby but I am getting "all circuits are busy now" Is there any other way to make reservations?

    Howdy Ashente!

    Welcome to planDisney!  Thank you for stopping by and sharing your question with us!

    When I get a “Rumbly in my Tumbly” at the Walt Disney World Resort, nothing hits the spot like sitting down and enjoying a yummy meal!  Since you are looking to make dining reservations for 13 people, you will need to make those reservations with a Cast Member.  I recently made dining reservations for 12, and I found out that calling as soon as the Walt Disney World Resort opens or an hour before closing left me with the shortest wait time.  Also, with a large party, they will have to divide you up into two or three tables, and you will receive different reservation numbers and times for each table.  Hakuna Matata, No Worries!  When you arrive at the restaurant for each Advanced Dining Reservation, I recommend arriving early and speaking with a Cast Member at the restaurant.  Let the Cast Member know that you would all like to be seated as close together as possible and/or if it is possible to place everyone at the same table.  The Cast Member will do their best to accommodate everyone in your party.  

    Your grand adventure sound Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!  You will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort at the best time!  The Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival will be in full swing during your vacation!  You will find some amazing Outdoor Kitchens sprinkled throughout EPCOT, and I know you will enjoy sampling all the yummy food and drinks!  I love the beautiful topiary displays!  Have your camera ready because you never know which one of your favorite character topiaries will be “Just Around the Riverbend!”
