    Hello, We are headed to Disneyland next month and I’d like to start making dining reservations, yay! My question is if I make a reservation for 10 and 4 are unable to make it, can I modify the reservation without losing it all together?

    Hi Kim! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for your great question! 

    Yay! Your magical vacation to the Disneyland Resort will be here before you know it! You have plenty to be excited about! You’ll be at the parks just in time to experience the all-new “Magic Happens” Parade at Disneyland Park and the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival

    You’re ahead of the curve, Kim! One of my top tips for large parties is to make a reservation for the maximum number of people that may be in your dining party. It's much easier to reduce the size of your dining party and a lot harder to increase the size. And, you can easily decrease the size of your dining party without losing your reservation. It can be done in one of several ways. 

    I like to use the Disneyland App to modify dining reservations. Simply go to the My Plans section and click on the reservation you need to change. Select the Modify option then you’ll be able to reduce your party size. You can also change the date and time there as well. Changes to the date and time of your reservation are not guaranteed and are based on availability. 

    From the Disneyland Resort website, select “My Reservations” from the “Things to Do” drop-down menu. Then select the "Change Reservation" hyperlink for the reservation you wish to modify. Follow the same steps as described above and confirm the changes. 

    Lastly, you may call Disney Dining at (714) 781-DINE (714-781-3463) and a Cast Member would be happy to assist you with modifying your reservation. 

    Please head back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with more questions! We're happy to help!
