    We have a few more weeks until I can make reservations! If we have reservations for late dining or a dessert party, are we guaranteed entrance, if it's very crowded? Thanks...can't wait to come!

    Hiya, Charlene!

    I can’t wait for your visit to the Disneyland Resort too! And you will be visiting during such an amazing season of the year! While it may be a popular time to visit, my experience in recent years is that limiting guest entry to the theme parks due to reaching capacity is actually relatively infrequent. While it is rare for these types of restrictions to be implemented, the safety of the guests is paramount. Should park entrance limits may be required, I’ve observed that there are different levels of restrictions, depending on the number of guests already in the parks. Among the first levels of restrictions may be to allow entrance into the park, but only to guests who have already entered the same park earlier in the day or who have verified dining reservations. Should the number of guests in attendance increase to higher levels, additional entrance restrictions may be imposed in order to keep conditions safe for all guests.

    It sounds like you may have some great dining plans in mind. My family loves the World of Color Dessert Party. The treats are so delicious. And watching the show from those seats is so comfortable. One of my family’s favorite dining experiences is the Blue Bayou Restaurant. It is so special to have a chance to enjoy a delicious meal INSIDE of an iconic Disneyland attraction. No matter where you end up eating, I’m sure you’ll enjoy the many sights, sounds, and experiences of the Disneyland Resort.

    Have a magical time, Charlene!
