    For Lamplight Lounfe: Why can I not make a dining reservation for 1 person? It shows a time for 2 people, but not for one person.

    Hi there, Yvonne!

    Sweet! Lamplight Lounge is one of my favorite dining locations in Disney California Adventure Park. I love its relaxed vibe and the gorgeous view of Pixar Pier.

    Frankly, if you can snag any reservation at all at Lamplight Lounge, I’d say go for it. It’s one of the most popular destinations at the Disneyland Resort. So reservations do go fast. I admit I’m a little surprised to read your description of looking for single-seat reservations at Lamplight Lounge. It’s been a few years, but I have been able to book a party of one there in the past. It’s also possible that with the popularity of Lamplight Lounge, a booking for two was briefly available and then was taken by the time a subsequent search with a different party size was made. Or, who knows? Maybe Experiment 626 is finding a way to cause a little mayhem with the reservation system.

    Tony’s Tip: If you don’t happen to succeed in making an advanced reservation for Lamplight Lounge, I recommend joining the walk-up list. To do so, use the latest version of the Disneyland mobile app. From the map, select “dining” from the dropdown menu and select the icon for Lamplight Lounge. Or use the “Show List” feature to search for the restaurant in the alphabetical list. With the restaurant selected or within its information page, tap the “Join Walk-Up List” button. You will need to be relatively near the restaurant during its operating hours to join the walk-up list. If there is space available, you’ll be added to the list. Make sure to set up notifications to be alerted to when your seat is available.

    Note that there are two options at Lamplight Lounge. The main dining room experience is downstairs and has access to the full menu. Or you may choose to visit the Lamplight Lounge - Boardwalk Dining, which features a smaller menu with appetizers and drinks. The Boardwalk Dining location does not accept advanced reservations and is available for walk-up Guests only.

    Small parties, especially parties of one are likely to be seated at a high-top table or at the bar. Some of my best experiences at Lamplight Lounge have been conversing with the excellent bartenders there. I’m sure you will love your experience too!

    Have a magical time, Yvonne!
