    We are visiting Disneyland in July and want to make afternoon reservations at Trader Sams. We have 5 people (2 adults 3 kids), but it seems like there is never availability for 5 people, only 4 or less, can you do a reservation for 5?

    Hiya Anthony! 

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with your great question! 

    Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar is one of my favorite dining locations outside of the Theme Parks. The fun tiki theme and tasty food make it the perfect dining location for kids and adults! Because it is so popular, it can make scoring a dining reservation difficult! But, I do have a couple of tips for you. 

    While I have made Dining Reservations for 6 or more at the Disneyland Resort, I have found there is an abundance of reservations for parties of 4. So, if my traveling party is 3 or 5 people, I’ll usually search for a reservation for 4. When you check in for your reservation using the Disneyland Mobile App, you can usually increase or decrease your party size by 1 person.

    Also, I have had great luck with snagging a table at Trader Sam’s using the Mobile Walk-Up List on the Disneyland Mobile App. Simply, make sure you are close to the restaurant and select “Join Wait-List.” If available, you’ll be asked to enter your dining party information and any dietary restrictions. Once your table is ready, you’ll receive a text message and you’ll have 10 minutes to return to the host stand to be seated. 

    Please enjoy your time at the Disneyland Resort! Don’t hesitate to return to planDisney with more questions!
