    We have dining reservations in December but our party size will change. If we show up with 2 people for a reservation for 3 or 4 will we have a problem??

    Hi Len!

    Getting Dining Reservations is so important for a vacation to Walt Disney World. It is always best to reserve on the high side versus reserving too few. If you show up at a restaurant and you only have 2 persons they will adjust the table size and everything will be fine. If you showed up with four for a reservation for two it would be an issue and you might wait a very long time before they could fit you into the table rotation.

    When making dining reservations at Disney you must include every person in the party including infants and toddlers. The reason for this is to be able to seat everyone comfortably and safely. Chairs stuck in aisles or in front of doorways cannot be allowed.

    Hopefully, everyone in your original party can attend but if not, no worries....just arrive and let them know you will have fewer guests.
