    If I made reservations for 4 people but we end up being a party of 5, will the restaurant accept our reservation or will we be turned away? The reservation is for 8:30 at Magic Kingdom.

    Hi, Laurie!

    Depending on how busy the Magic Kingdom restaurant is on the day you are there will determine how your additional guest will be handled. Because you are late in evening, you should be fine. I had to do this before, and I stopped by the restaurant before the dinner rush and told them about my extra guest. This gave them a heads-up for my change of plans. You may have to wait a few extra minutes for your table, but just find out when you ask at the podium how/if it can be handled.

    Your easiest option is to modify your existing reservation. I would call (407)WDW-DINE and ask if they can change your reservation. If not, just keep it and follow my tips from above. Hopefully you will all be seated easily and get to enjoy a wonderful evening of dining and magic in the beautiful Magic Kingdom!
