    We are planning on doing my sons birthday at goofys kitchen it would be a total of 10 people. Can we all book separate and still sit together, or does one person have to book reservation for the 10 of us in order to sit together.

    Hello Stephanie, and let me be the first to share our warmest welcome to planDisney! I'm so excited to hear about your plans for a birthday celebration at Disneyland Resort!

    There's really no better place for pure fun (and flavor) than a character dining experience like Goofy's Kitchen. It was absolutely a core memory for me to watch my daughters light up when they saw their favorite Disney characters parading around the restaurant and stopping by our table for hugs. Whether you choose character dining at the breakfast or dinner buffet options, I think your idea to celebrate your son's birthday there is spectacular! 

    Now, let's get you some information to help you secure your dining reservations for this very merry birthday celebration! Advanced dining reservations may be made up to 60 days before your visit through either the official Disneyland website or the Disneyland mobile app. You can certainly search for your party size of 10, or if you would prefer to book separate reservations for smaller parties (for example, 2 parties of 5), you would just need to locate and secure dining reservations within a few minutes of each other on the same date. If you opt for this strategy, you would need two different guests to place the reservations since the system will not allow you to hold conflicting dining reservations at the same dining location. Then on the day of your visit, I suggest you arrive at the restaurant a few minutes before your reservation time and let the Cast Member at the host podium know that your party would like to be seated together. While not a guarantee, they really will work all their pixie dust to make this happen for you.

    Speaking of spreading a little magic, don't forget to pick up your complimentary celebratory buttons from Guest Relations locations or at the front desk of the Disneyland Hotel, where Goofy's Kitchen is located. It's such a nice way to announce that you are celebrating something special, and both Cast Members and Guests often share their happy wishes with you.

    Stephanie, I hope these few tips will help you arrange an unforgettable birthday celebration for your son. If you have any other planning questions or need other recommendations for your upcoming visit, please reach out again. We love helping our fellow Guests make the most of their time at the Happiest Place on Earth! 

    Wishing you a Wondrous Journey,
