    Should I be making dinner, etc reservations before my arrival? And how far in advance is good to make reservations? Oh and how good are the restaurants with peanut allergies?

    Hi, Melissa! Thanks for trusting the Disney Parks Moms Panel to help you plan your trip to the Happiest Place on Earth!
    Dining reservations at the Disneyland Resort can be made up to 60 days in advance online, on the Disneyland app, or by calling (714) 781-3463. I always recommend that Guests make at least one or two dining reservations for their vacation. It’s nice to have a plan for certain meals and at the end of a busy day, it’s great to know that a table and a wonderful dinner is waiting for you. It’s particularly important to make advanced reservations as soon as you are able if you plan on enjoying a meal at any of the signature or character dining locations, or if you want to book a dining package for World of Color, Fantasmic!, or Paint the Night. These dining experiences can be very popular and seating is limited. However, you might find that other restaurants have availability all the way up until a few hours before you would like to dine.
    As far as accommodating Guests with allergies and special dietary needs, you’ll be glad to know that the chefs at the Disneyland Resort go above and beyond to ensure that every Guest can have a magical dining experience. Most, if not all, restaurants have allergy-friendly menus available that list which meals are safe for those with certain food allergies. Additionally, you can speak to a chef or specially-trained Cast Member to discuss specific options and accommodations. When making dining reservations in advance, be sure to note the peanut allergy so those at the dining location are alerted to your needs.
    I hope this information was helpful. Please stop by again with any other questions you may have!
