Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • I'm planning the team trip for the President's Day soccer tournament 2014. The travel agency does not have package info yet, but our 180 day window for dining ressies is next week. How do we get group dining secured when we can't make hotel ressies?

  • Hi Krista!

    Thank you for visiting me on the Moms Panel!  I am thrilled you are planning a visit in February, the President's Day Festival is my favorite soccer tournament at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex!  Its not a known secret, but you actually do not need a resort reservation number anymore in order to book dining reservations.  The number of guests you can book is ever changing, but I did just check for you and currently you can book up to 49 guests online!  In my experience, I called T-Rex and Rainforest Cafe at Downtown Disney (both which do not require a theme park ticket and are very family friendly) and was directed to their group dining reservation department directly.  I had a wonderful group reservation specialist, and she simply emailed me a few menus to choose from with varying prices and selections.  I then forwarded the menus on to the team and we pre-ordered all of our meals.  When our group of 40 arrived that day, we had our food at the table within 10 minutes, and were out of a very busy restaurant in an hour! 

    Please let me know if I can help you any further!

    Wishing you a prehistoric time,
