    Since Goofys Kitchen holiday dining has been announced, reservations have yet to be opened after November 30. Is there an anticipated date in which the reservations will open? The dates are quickly approaching!

    Hi ya, Danielle!

    Ah, that Goofy! I love him, but sometimes he gets some crazy ideas. Like cooking up an extra special holiday menu...that may have delayed reservations opening. He has great intentions, though!

    I'm happy to share that it looks like dining reservations for Goofy's Kitchen are now open through the end of December. Chef Goofy wanted to make holiday dining extra special, so he needed a little extra prep time! I recommend looking for available reservations on a computer so you can use all the helpful new search features. I hope you can find a day and time that works for you! 

    One of my best dining reservation tips is to find a planning sidekick to help you, especially when you're trying to get a reservation for a large group. If you can't find a reservation for your party try breaking into smaller groups to make multiple reservations! Just keep your reservation times as close to each other as you can, arrive early, and kindly ask the Cast Members if your party can be seated close together. We've usually had good luck with this method!

    I do see that a few busy days (like Christmas Eve and Christmas Day) look like they're fully booked at Goofy's Kitchen. If those are the days you were looking for I'm so sorry! You can search for other restaurants across the resort that have reservations by using the Dining Reservations page. I love that this page includes the option to look at every location in the resort, for a whole day!

    Don't forget that the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort include tons of seasonal snacks and treats! I like to use the Disneyland Mobile App to order my favorites (Hello, Mickey Gingerbread Cookie) early in the day so I make sure I don't miss out. Nothing says "Christmas" like eating a cookie, right?

    I'm so sorry that you were having trouble making dining reservations, Danielle. I hope that my tips help you find what you need! Sending you lots of pixie dust for a magical holiday at the Disneyland Resort!

    Keep moving forward!
