    Can I make reservation for characters dining at any resort if I’m not a guest ? We planing to go to the parks

    Hello, Maria!

    Welcome, and thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I’m a self-proclaimed Disney foodie, so meal planning is one of my favorite parts of preparing for a magical Disneyland Resort vacation!

    Yes, anyone can dine at the restaurants located at the three Disneyland Resort Hotels. Goofy’s Kitchen at the Disneyland Hotel is one of my favorite Character Dining locations at the resort because of its large selection of food and fun character variety. You’ll find an all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet that includes Mickey waffles, PB&J “pizza,” an omelet station and a whole section devoted to kids’ breakfast favorites during brunch. At dinnertime, selections include a carving station, catch of the day, a full dessert bar and other hearty menu items. Whichever Character Dining restaurant you choose, be sure to bring along your camera and autograph book! Keep in mind that children under the age of 3 eat for free at all-you-care-to-enjoy dining experiences, including character meals. Reservations are highly recommended and can be made up to 60 days in advance online or by calling (714) 781-3463.

    I hope this helps you plan, Maria, and that your visit to the Happiest Place on Earth is all you’ve been dreaming! Please feel free to send us any other questions you may have before your adventure begins. 

    Wishing you magic,
