    I have a reservation for 6:00 p.m. on Christmas Day at the Napa rose. Will I be able to upgrade to the chef's counter? And if so what does that include and how much is the extra cost? Thank you so much

    Welcome, welcome Anita! I'm so honored you chose planDisney to share this question and I hope we can get you the answers you need to continue planning your upcoming visit to Disneyland Resort. 

    A Christmas evening meal at Napa Rose is just the pinnacle of holiday elegance! It sounds like an absolute dream come true. The Chef's Counter dining experience at Napa Rose uses a different reservation system than the traditional advanced dining reservations at Disneyland Resort and Guests should call the restaurant as early as the first day of the month, two months prior to when they plan to dine. I have a few tips on how to book the Chef's Counter experience that I recently shared here, and I hope they will be helpful to you, too! In my experience, the reservations are very limited and I'm unaware of an upgrade process for an existing dining reservation, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't call and see what might become available to you during your visit! 

    Even if you are unable to secure a reservation for the Chef's Counter, I know your dinner at Napa Rose will be a wonderful experience, and the culinary team always puts such care and creativity into the preparation of each menu item. I haven't yet seen any announcements about a Christmas day menu just yet, but the Thanksgiving dinner looks superb and you can expect the same level of unparalleled cuisine and service! One tip I like to remind Guests about dining at Napa Rose is to allow about 2 hours time to really enjoy and savor the entire experience. It is really something special!

    I hope you enjoy all the magic of the holiday season at Disneyland Resort, Anita. If we can help with any other recommendations in the meantime, please don't hesitate to come back to planDisney and send other questions our way. It would be a pleasure to see you again!

    Merry and bright wishes to you,
