    I thought I read somewhere that by staying at a resort hotel you can get preferred seating for certain dining reservations...? Did I read that correctly?

    Greetings Ashleigh!
    Disneyland Resort Hotel guests enjoy a series of benefits, including preferred reservation access.
    Preferred reservation access is a special perk where a limited number of reservations at select restaurants are set aside exclusively for hotel guests. This means that even if a hotel guest wasn't able to book a table ahead of their resort stay, they may still be able to dine at a popular Disneyland restaurant. In order to qualify for this benefit, a valid Disneyland Resort hotel reservation in the guest’s name is required and preferred access reservations may only be made for the dates of the guest’s hotel stay.
    Currently, the restaurant's available for preferred reservation access are:
        *Ariel’s Grotto
        *Blue Bayou
        *Carthay Circle Restaurant
        *Catal Restaurant
        *ESPN Zone
        *Goofy’s Kitchen
        *La Brea Bakery Cafe
        *Napa Rose
        *Naples Ristorante e Pizzeria
        *Plaza Inn
        *Rainforest Cafe
        *Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen
        *Tortilla Jo’s
    While this benefit doesn't guarantee specific seating arrangements, it gives hotel guests an opportunity to have a Magical dining experience!
