    I am trying to make reservations for a character breakfast for my [large group] family. We will not be traveling until the end of December; however, I want to ensure that I will be able to reserve in October (60 days before) for such a large party? [12]

    Howdy Kristie!  

    Welcome to planDisney!  I always say, “The more, the merrier” when we plan a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!  I am super excited that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with your family!  I know you are going to “Make Memories to Last a Lifetime” in just a few months!  Thank you for sharing this great question with us!

    I recently made reservations for a vacation with a party of nine and twelve.  I think Mary Poppins said it best, “In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun!  You find the fun and SNAP, and the job’s a game!”  When making reservations for a party of twelve, it may be a bit time-consuming, but you are guaranteed to ”Make Dreams Come True!”

    As you wait for your window to make advanced dining reservations to arrive, create a list of all the restaurants that everyone in your party would enjoy!  Since you want to make reservations for a character dining experience, I highly recommend Chef Mickey's!  You will need to call the Walt Disney World Resort dining as soon as the Walt Disney World Resort opens on the first day you can make your reservations.  The Cast Member you speak with will make several reservations to accommodate your entire party in a timely manner.  Upon arriving early at each of your dining reservations, make sure to let the Cast Member at the desk know which reservations are together.  Then they can do their best to seat everyone as close as possible within a similar time frame.

    Unforgettable memories are “Just Around the Riverbend!”  To capture all of your memories and bring them home with you, I recommend adding Memory Maker to your vacation!  With Memory Maker, all of your Family & Friends linked with you on your My Disney Experience can enjoy an unlimited amount of photos during your visit!  You will be able to have an unlimited amount of photographs uploaded to your My Disney Experience, and you can share them with your family at your convenience!  I love Memory Maker because everyone can be in the photo!

    To stay informed of everything to see and do during your visit, check the Disney Parks Blog!  If you have any more questions as you plan your grand gathering, please come back to planDisney!  We are always here to help you with all your questions to make your vacation unforgettable, Kristie!

    See Ya Real Soon,
