    I have been lucky enough to get a dining reservation for the story book princess at akersaus in epcot but it is only for 4 and I really need 6 will they let me add 2 to my reservation if I just go or should I try to get two more. for oct 6 lunch

    Hi Nicole,

    Thank you for your great question. Because each dining location plans their dining room based on number of guests expected, I would not advise arriving with two additional guests. I suggest continuing to check availability online each day or you can call Disney Dining at 407-939-3463 to rebook with six guests. In my experience, arriving late (past 15 minutes after your ADR) or arriving with more guests than originally booked might cause the restaurant to accommodate you only after they've seated others who arrived earlier. Although subject to Akershus' policies, they likely will not deny your reservation but you may have a much longer wait than anticipated. 

    Another suggestion is to book an additional table for two and upon arrival, request Akershus to please seat the two tables near each other. There's no guarantee but at least all six guests will experience the meal. 

    Let me know if you have any other questions, Nicole. I'm happy to help.
