    We have two families going to WDW this Nov. For dinner reservations is it easier to book two parties of 4 & 3 and ask to be seated side by side OR try for a table for 7?

    Hi Lisa,

    Traveling with a large party can be a lot fun! I would try for a reservation of 7. That way you are guaranteed to sit together. However, since your vacation is so close, getting reservations could be tricky. If you do two separate parties, you may not be able to get the same times. But if making a reservation for 7 doesn't work and splitting the parties up allows you to get tables at the same time, then try it.

    If that's what ends up happening, plan on arriving at your reservation at least 20 minutes early. Explain that your two parties would like to sit together. You my have to wait a little extra time for them to accommodate you, but I think that the cast members will do their best to seat you together. You just need to prepare to wait.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
