    How do I make a dining reservation at Lamplight Lounge in DCA for dinner if I choose Disneyland as my first park and I won’t hop there until the afternoon? The app doesn’t let me make a reservation in DCA since I chose Disneyland to start off with.

    Hey there, Sharon! I love food-related questions, so I am happy to help you with your dining reservation question.

    The Lamplight Lounge in Disney California Adventure Park is one of the most popular dining locations at the Disneyland Resort. Not only are they known for such incredible dishes like the Lobster Nachos, but the restaurant also offers unbelievable views of Pixar Pier.

    If you were trying to make dinner reservations but could not do so, it is unlikely that your starting park, Disneyland Park, was the cause. This restaurant is rather popular and will often see all reservation availability booked on the first day. I can see your inability to reserve a table due to a lack of availability.

    I have two recommendations. The first recommendation is to continue to check the reservations. People do cancel their tables, especially last minute, and you may be able to reserve a table that way. The other option would be to add yourself to the Mobile Dine Walk-Up Availability on the Disneyland Mobile App. Using this option, on the day of your trip, get close to the restaurant when you are ready to dine. Then add yourself to a virtual queue for a table using Dine Walk-Up Availability. You can walk around nearby until you are alerted that a table is ready. I find that Mobile Dine Walk-Up Availability has shorter waits during off-peak meal times.

    Have a great time, eat all the food, and please come back to the planDisney Panel if there are more questions we can help you with.

    Happy planning,
