    Why isn't Goofy's Kitchen open for reservations on the 10th of December?

    Hi there, Marjorie!

    Welcome to planDisney! I know sometimes making dining reservations can be a stressful part of vacation planning, so I'd be happy to share a few tips and tricks with you.

    I'm happy to share that I currently see open reservations for Goofy's Kitchen on the date you mentioned! I checked the availability for a few different party sizes and saw reservations for groups of 4, 6, or 8 available. I did notice that there were no options for a party of 2, so if that's what you are looking for then I would recommend making a reservation for a party of 4. After you've made that reservation you can view it in "My Plans" and click "Change Reservation" to reduce the number of guests. 

    If you need to make a dining reservation for more than 8 guests it's usually easier to find a planning buddy to help you make two reservations for smaller groups around the same time. When you arrive at the restaurant you can request to be seated near each other. I find that coming a few minutes early usually helps the Cast Members to keep us close together.  

    Did you know that Goofy and his pals will be cooking up something extra special for the holiday season during your visit? The buffet will feature some special holiday favorites, along with some dishes that show off Goofy's eccentric cooking skills. Keep your camera handy, because at Goofy's Kitchen the characters come to you!

    The Disneyland Resort Hotels will also have their holiday decorations on display, and they are worth seeing! If you take a few moments before or after your meal to explore the hotels you'll enjoy beautiful trees, music, and art...and you might even find a special friend checking his list once or twice.

    Marjorie, I hope your holiday wish of dining with Goofy comes true! Enjoy the merriest time of year at the Happiest Place on Earth!

    Keep moving forward!
