    Thanks for you help planning our 1st trip, 2nd in 35 days! I made my ADR months ago and now my sister is going with us. My ADR are for 5, what are the chances that I can just show up and say that we have 6? No table available if I try to rebook. Thank you!

    Hi Emily,

    I'm so glad we were able to help make your first trip even better, and how exciting to be planning your second. Not much longer now!

    We have experienced the same problem you are dealing with, a number of times. We have friends and family that live in the Florida area and often decide, at the last minute, to join us for lunch or dinner. Personally I never cancel my reservation and try and re-book it, as often there are no reservations remaining and you will lose your table. I would show up a little early for your actual reservation and speak to the host or hostess regarding your party size. Let the Cast Member know you have a family member that is now able to join you and ask for a change in your party size. While there are no guarantees, I can not recall ever being turned away for adding just one additional guest. The Cast Member will be able to tell you if this is a problem or if there will be an additional wait due to the change. As long as you are willing to wait a little longer if needed, you should be fine.

    Good luck!
