    How do you make a dining reservation at Disneyland

    Hiya Priscilla! Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm happy to share that you have come to the right place! I can't think of many things I'd rather do than dine, snack and drink at Disney Parks! Table service dining reservations are a great way to enjoy the delicious food available at the Disneyland Resort and provide a nice change of pace to a busy, fun-filled vacation. Let's get down to business on how to make those coveted reservations.

    There are two ways to make dining reservations, so I'll share them both! More often than not, I prefer making dining reservations using the Disneyland Mobile App. It is quick and easy and I love having everything right at my fingertips. You'll see a plus sign on the bottom menu bar when you open the app. Start by clicking that, then selecting "Check Dining Availability." When you enter your party size, a calendar will pop up for you to choose the date for which you'd like to reserve dining. Once the date is selected, you'll be prompted to search by time. You can choose a broader overall meal time (breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner) or a specific time of day. When you choose a time, all of the available restaurants will pop up underneath. Comb through the options until you find a dining location that speaks to you. Select the reservation time that suits your needs, then follow the steps to confirm the reservation.

    If there is a specific dining location you just have to try, you can search for the name of the restaurant using the search feature on the bottom menu bar of the app. Once on the restaurant's dedicated page, click "Reserve Dining" and follow the same steps from above. This will filter out reservations for all of the other restaurants, showing you the available times at this location only.

    Another way to make dining reservations is by using the Disneyland Resort Website. Hover over the "Things to Do" tab, then select "Make Reservations" under "Dining." You can select filters at the top to help narrow down your choices, including Character Dining and Fine/Signature Dining. Input your preferred date, time and party size, then click "Search Times."All restaurants with dining availability will be shown. Simply click the blue button with the time that works best for you, then follow the prompts to confirm your reservation. 

    Priscilla, I know this may sound complicated, but it is a pretty easy process! Feel free to reach back out to planDisney with any additional questions or if you would like recommendations on which restaurants may be best for your travel party!

    May all your dining dreams come true,
