    I made Disney World dining reservation under my name. It is possible that I may not be attending, but will sub another adult instead of me. Other 2 party members will be the same. Will this present a problem when she checks in to dine?

    Hiya Cynthia!

    Welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet! As a fellow foodie, I am glad you are looking into booking some dining reservations while visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. I don't know about you, Cynthia, but I often feel like Disney food is almost as exciting as the other attractions.

    There are a couple of things you could do in this situation if you cannot make it to your reservation. After chatting with a Cast Member, I was advised that you cannot switch profiles linked to a dining reservation on My Disney Experience. Instead, you could book the reservation for your entire party, except the person who might be replacing you. Therefore, if you do have to skip that reservation, the size of your party will remain the same. Then, when they arrive at the restaurant, they can simply let the Cast Member know that you will not be joining them but that the party is still complete. Another option would be to cancel your reservation and let your friends book another one. However, this is a bit trickier as they would not be guaranteed the reservation back and may lose it. If you all decide to go together in the end, though, you can easily add one member to your reservation.

    Now, Cynthia, I highly recommend downloading the My Disney Experience mobile app on your iPhone, iPad or Android smartphone. Indeed, the My Disney Experience mobile app makes booking last-minute reservations even more convenient, and you can sometimes even check in for your dining reservation straight from the app. Besides, since Guests often have to cancel their dining reservations at the last minute, I like keeping an eye on the reservation center the week before my trip. You can usually find little treasures in there!

    I hope this was helpful, Cynthia, and that you and your Ohana will have the most magical vacation on your next Walt Disney World Resort trip. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to reach back out! As Remy once said: "vous serez toujours la bienvenue chez Remy," and you will always be welcome here at planDisney! 

    Bon appétit,
