    I made a reservation for Goofys kitchen for 4 adults not realizing I had to include my 2 year old in the reservation. She uses a high chair. Would it be ok to still book it?

    Hi Priscilla!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for sending your Disneyland Resort vacation planning question to us hEAR. I'm happy to be your planEAR today, and it's my pleasure assisting a fellow Texan. 

    Don't worry about a thing, Priscilla. We'll get you through this dining dilemma. Every Guest sitting at a table, even if they aren't eating or they are under 2 yEARs and 364 days old and therefore are free, will need to be counted in your dining reservation. This is to ensure that your group can get a big enough table so you're all able to eat in comfort, especially at this super fun buffet where you'll for sure want to try one of everything. But it's also a rule for all table-service dining reservations at Disneyland Resort as well as all of Disney's parks worldwide for fire code reasons.

    But not to worry! I just checked and there are still lots of reservations available to dine at Goofy's Kitchen over your visit to Mickey's house. You have two choices: you can either try to modify the existing reservation to include your daughter, or you can cancel the reservation you have and book a new ressy for a party of five. To try to modify, locate the reservation in your My Disneyland Account profile. Under the reservation confirmation number, click 'change reservation.' From this screen, you can update your party count and search different times, different dates, etc. 

    Pro Tip: You, the restaurant booker of your group, are only allowed to have one dining location reserved every 90 minutes; instead of canceling this reservation and trying to rebook another on the same day around the same time, what you could do is keep this dining reservation and use the profile of your spouse or another adult in your travel party to look and book the new dining reservation. This way you'll still have your current reservation in place in the off chance that you can't find a table for 5 at the same seating. (If you were to cancel this reservation to search for a larger table, you might not be able to get the one you just dropped back as it would then be open for other guests to book.) If you can find a reservation for five, you'll simply cancel your original booking. If you can't find a second booking that fits with your schedule, you can try to use your original reservation. You might have to wait a few more minutes for a larger table to open up, but they can usually accommodate some same-day changes. Just make sure that you only have one reservation for this meal and you should be all set.

    I hope that this helped to clEAR things up and plan your upcoming Disney Days, Priscilla!
