    Is it possible to add one person to an existing dining reservation?

    Hello, Cindie! Welcome to planDisney, and thanks for your visit! You’ve brought up one of my very favorite topics - Disney dining! It is so much fun to add people to your dining reservation. I’ve been lucky enough to do this myself, and suddenly, a small reservation turns into a memorable group dinner! The more, the merrier! The ability to do this, however, is dependent on restaurant availability. Therefore, this is not always guaranteed and is subject to change.
    The best way to check availability is to log into your My Disney Experience account and attempt to modify an existing reservation. Sometimes, you will easily be able to alter the group size. However, if this is not an option for you, that may mean that availability doesn’t currently exist. From that point, I would suggest that you contact Disney dining periodically to check for availability. Another option would be to make a walk-up reservation for members of your party that wish to join in as dates draw nearer, depending on whether the particular restaurant offers it! 
    Cindie, have you heard about the reservation finding tools available on external websites? These sites often provide free access to these tools that will look for reservations on your behalf. As an option, you could use one of these to search for a larger reservation and alert you if one becomes available! Meanwhile, check out all the different options available for Mobile Ordering in and around the Disney Parks! For example, I recently visited Satuli Canteen with my planDisney pals and pre-ordered my meal, which was hot and ready minutes after I arrived and checked in! Delicious!
