    Can two people making dining reservations at the same time for the same party?

    Welcome to planDisney Jo-Ann!

    I am not sure I understand your question, but hopefully I am heading in the right direction with my answer!  

    I am guessing you have a large party and want to dine together. The best option here is to break up into 2 tables. You will need 2 guests who each have a My Disney Experience account with each one booking dining. Try to coordinate dining times so you will be seated at generally the same time. Breaking up into 2 smaller parties definitely simplifies things. To get the best dining times and options, book as soon as you hit your 60-day booking window. 

    Seating large parties together is a challenge at Walt Disney World as most locations cannot accommodate. However, locations such as buffets (Boma at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is my favorite buffet!) might be able to seat your 2 tables near each other though there is no way to guarantee it. Kindly let the Cast Members know when checking in that your pals are dining at the same time. If your tables are not near each other, swap stories post-dinner of what your favorite dishes were!

    When making Dining Reservations, a credit card guarantee is required. Cancel any unwanted reservations at least 24 hours prior to avoid any fees or penalties. 

    A wonderful option for large parties is to enjoy Quick Service locations. Large areas are open for seating, no reservations are needed, and there are lots of locations to choose from. I love the seating areas at Flame Tree Barebecue in Disney's Animal Kingdom and the Regal Eagle Smokehouse in EPCOT. 

    If you need additional information while planning, please stop back to your friends here at planDisney.

    Wishing you and your travel party many magical meals during your Walt Disney World vacation!

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
