    I’m the main planner for our Disneyland vacation. Can I make a dining reservation for some of the people in my party, and then allow them to check in without me?

    Howdy Abby!

    Welcome to planDisney!  I love to chat about dining at the Disneyland Resort!  Thank you for sharing this great question with us!

    When you get a “Rumbly in your Tumbly” during your visit to the Disneyland Resort, nothing hits the spot like an advanced dining reservation!  I have great news for you!  As long as your party has your name and reservations number, then they will be able to begin the check-in process at your dining location.  You can also check into your restaurant reservation via the Disneyland mobile app!  Once your check-in window arrives, you will receive a push notification to check-ink via the app!  After you push the check-in notification, you must confirm your arrival time and party details.  Then once your table is ready, you will be notified.  Make sure that your entire party is at your dining location so that there is no delay in seating!

    As you continue to plan your visit to the Disneyland Resort, check the Disney Parks Blog!  The Disney Parks Blog is always making some exciting announcements!  Just today, the Disney Parks Blog announced that the Genie would be released from the bottle on December the 8th!  The Disney Genie Service is super exciting for all guests visiting the Disneyland Resort!  With the Disney Genie Service, you will easily maneuver throughout the theme parks!  If you decide to add the Disney Genie+ Service to your vacation, you will be able to schedule specific attraction return times.  Once your return time is available, you will head to the attraction and enter via Lightning Lane!

    As you continue to plan your vacation to the Disneyland Resort and learn about all the new and exciting things on the horizon, if you have any more questions, please come back to planDisney!  We look forward to helping you with all your future planning questions, Abby!

    See Ya Real Soon,
