    My family group of 10 people is traveling to Disneyland in July. It’s important to all of us to experience some things as a group - such as character dining for the kiddos and Blue Bayou. Will the restaurants accept reservations for a group this large?

    Hey there, hi there, Jimeva! Welcome to planDisney! It sounds like you are planning quite a magical trip for your family this summer. 

    I'm happy to let you know that most table service locations can accommodate reservations for larger parties, like your group of 10. With that being said, it can definitely be more challenging to get reservations for larger parties. I know a character dining experience and Blue Bayou are high on your priority list, so I highly recommend you set an alarm and be up early and ready to try to secure these exactly 60 days out. There isn't an exact time that reservations drop but lately, I have heard that they tend to populate on the website between 3:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m., PST.

    For character dining, I would suggest looking into Goofy's Kitchen located at Disneyland Hotel. This is just a stroll through the Downtown Disney District from the parks and is your best chance at having availability for your larger group. I was just there last weekend with a party of 10 and it was fantastic. We loved watching Goofy, Pluto, Chip, Dale, and Donald dance around and say hello multiple times throughout our breakfast experience. I was also very impressed with the food selection and I'm happy to report Mickey Waffles are there! 

    I will share that Blue Bayou is most definitely one of the top sought-after reservations and are pretty hard to get even for a smaller party if you are up and ready to reserve 60 days out. My suggestion is to head over to Blue Bayou on the day you are looking to eat there before they open and wait for a Cast Member at the podium. You can kindly ask if they are taking any walk-up reservations for your party of 10. This is not a guarantee, but I have had success doing this recently with a similar size party. 

    Jimeva, I hope that this information helps you try to get the reservations you want. I am sending you all the pixie dust that your Disneyland dreams come to life!
