    I wish to plan a Thanksgiving dinner for my extended family. I counted about 11 people (including myself) attending on the 24th, although I'm sure more will turn up as word gets out. What, if any, options are available?

    Hi Andrew,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your question! A great, big, beautiful family vacation, how fun!

    When it comes to booking a dining reservation for multiple people, you’ll want to keep a few things top of mind like the type of cuisine you’re looking for, the timing of your reservation, and where it’ll be. 

    For larger parties, I suggest heading to Disney Springs for your dinner because then you don’t need to keep up with everyone’s tickets and Theme Park Reservations. You can simply all show up at Disney Springs and dine together. Now, you can look into reservations within the Theme Parks, but you might not find as much availability since a dining reservation in the Parks is a pretty popular choice (especially on a holiday).

    Bookings for advance dining reservations begin 60 days in advance of a vacation, so you can start looking and book your reservation for your family now! Before you do, you’ll want to confirm the total number of people in your party. Sometimes Cast Members can accommodate less people coming to the reservation, but it’s a little more challenging adding people to the reservation. Once you confirm your number of guests, see what’s available and book!

    I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is useful as you continue planning for your upcoming Thanksgiving vacation. If you have any other questions in the meantime, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
