    Is it possible to change a dining reservation down one person - from 3 people to just 2 - without completely cancelling the reservation? I can't find that option online or on MDE. We won't know until much later if we will be a party of 2 or 3.

    Hi, Laurie!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    One of my favorite parts of planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is choosing which of the many phenomenal restaurants to visit.  Advanced dining reservations are recommended for Table-Service restaurants and can be made 180 days in advance, so I'm glad to hEAR that you already have some dining reservations in place for your upcoming trip.  Although it's advisable to start making your dining plans far in advance, the good news is that if you need to change those plans, they can easily be modified using your My Disney Experience mobile app.

    Most dining reservations may be modified or canceled up to one day in advance, so for now, I would keep your reservation for three people.  It is usually not a problem to decrease the number of guests on your reservation, but it might not be possible to add guests if the restaurant is already booked to capacity.  If you find out that there will only be two of you who can enjoy a meal together, simply go to "My Plans" in your My Disney Experience mobile app.  From there, you will need to click on the dining reservation that you need to modify.  Once you click on the reservation, you should see three options listed under the reservation confirmation number.  These options will say "Cancel," "Find on Map," and "Modify."  To change the number of guests in your party, simply click on "Modify."

    Laurie, if you have any additional questions as you get ready for your trip, please visit us again.  In the meantime, check out the new #DisneyMagicMoments website to experience some Disney magic at home.  My daughter has really been enjoying the Disney Animation character drawing tutorials!

    See ya real soon!
