    Hi I was wondering if I can change a reservation for candlelight processional dinner at garden grill from 3 people to 2 people? My sister can’t make it now unfortunately

    Hey there, hi there, Stephanie! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney! I'm so glad that you've stopped by with such a great vacation planning question. I love chatting with my pals about my two favorite things: Disney and dining!

    Stephanie, it sounds as if your planning is off to a practically perfect start! With a visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth during the most wonderful time of the year (my absolute favorite time to visit) and a Candlelight Processional Dining Package booked, you are in for the holly jolliest time at Walt Disney World Resort. It's less than magical to hear that your sister can't join in on the fun, but let's chat about how you can keep the holiday spirit (and delicious dining) alive!

    While you can typically easily modify the number of Guests on a dining reservation on the My Disney Experience app, I did notice that I don't have the "Modify" option on my Candlelight Processional Dining Package reservation. However, you can tap the "Update Party" link and simply uncheck your sister as a Guest on the reservation. Then, once you check in for your reservation on the day of your oh-so-magical reservation, just let the Cast Member know that only two people will be enjoying the dining experience. In my experience, that has never been an issue, and they have gladly accommodated a slightly smaller party.

    If you would like to officially update your dining package reservation, I suggest calling a helpful Cast Member at (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463. They will also be more than happy to help!

    Stephanie, if you have a sweet tooth (And who doesn't, am I right?!), while you are enjoying the festive fun at the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays, be sure to participate in the Holiday Cookie Stroll. You simply purchase five cookies from any of the official cookie stroll locations and make sure to have a Cast Member stamp your Festival Passport. Once you've collected five stamps, you get a special treat! My tip is to pack some resealable plastic bags in your park bag that day to take some of these sweet treats back to your room or home with you. What a sweet way to kick off the holidays!

    I hope this was helpful, Stephanie, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable holiday vacation, full of festive fun and yuletide yumminess! Please stop by any time with any questions you may have along the way. You've got a friend in planDisney!

    Stay merry and bright,
