    I have 6 people in my group and want to make a couple reservations for lunch and dinner a day. If all 6 are not hungry at the time, does it matter if 4 of our party shows up? Is there a charge for entire party not showing up to the reservation?

    Hey, howdy, hey, Eric!

    It sounds like you are in for a delicious time at the Disneyland Resort! My mouth is watering at the thought!

    As you know, dining reservations are secured by a credit card, which will be charged a per-person fee in the event that all guests on the reservation do not appear for the reservation. Terms of this arrangement are outlined at the time reservations are made and in the confirmation email for your reservation. Of course, Disneyland dining Cast Members understand that situations change. Should a portion of your party not be able to attend your reservation, you will not receive any penalty. A good-faith effort to keep your reservation is appreciated. If you learn in advance of a change to the number of guests on a reservation, you may contact the Dining Reservations phone line to make changes or cancel your reservation. Or, for even more convenience, you may use the Disneyland app to make, view, modify or cancel dining reservations.

    Should you have any additional questions, I hope you won’t hesitate to return to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Perhaps you would like to get recommendations for places to eat at the Disneyland Resort. I hope you don’t mind if I suggest a few of my family’s favorites. For a relaxing, casual dining experience, we love Carnation Cafe on Main Street, U.S.A. Try the Fried Pickles with Dipping Sauce; they’re delicious! For a fancier meal in an exquisite venue, we enjoy the Fire Cracker Duck Wings at Carthay Circle Restaurant. For an unforgettable and unique experience, Blue Bayou Restaurant, located inside the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, never lets us down.

    Bon appétit, Eric!
