    Hi we have a large group planning to go to Disneyland. It will be approximately 11 people. My question is does the Blue Bayou support this amount of people in a group? We would love to dine here. AJ

    Hello, AJ! 

    Welcome to planDisney! 

    I'm so glad that you came to us with this question because there's a little trick that may help you get the tables you need. Blue Bayou Restaurant is one of the most fantastic places at the Disneyland Resort, and it's also one of the hardest reservations to get because it's so beautiful! 

    My top tips for getting a table there are: 

  • Break your party into two smaller groups and book two tables. Booking a 5-people table and a 6-people table will be much easier than finding a reservation for 11 Guests. So my suggestion is to search for two smaller reservations instead of a big reservation. Upon arrival, let the Cast Members know that you'd like to seat close to each other and they will do their best to accommodate you. While they can't guarantee that you will sit together, they will certainly try! 

  • Download the Disneyland Mobile App in advance and start playing with the reservation system to get familiar with the process. Get your fingers used to the process because speed will be your friend!

  • Start your search 60 days before your visit at 6:00 a.m. EST. That's usually when the system opens bookings for each particular date, so that's the best time to start browsing. If you can't find your tables for Blue Bayou Restaurant 60 days away, book your two tables at Cafe Orleans as a plan B because those will go fast too!

  • Keep looking! You still have plenty of time before your trip, and if you don't find your reservation right away, don't give up. People drop tables and change plans all the time, so new tables are added back into the system every day.

  • I hope this helps you create a magical moment for you and your party, AJ! If you have more questions before May, please let us know! 

    May the magic be with you,
