We recently shared with you that Disneyland leaped into the tech world and began offering to do your dining via a Online Reservation System. Today we want to go over how this system works, so that you are prepared to use it and/or work with your travel agent on making your dining reservation choices.
This system is very similar to Disney World’s system, even requiring Credit Card information to hold a reservation. Although you won’t be charged unless you fail to cancel or show up for your reservation. While it’s true that I often say that Disneyland and Disney World appear to be run by two completely different companies, it’s nice to see a couple parts of the planning process becoming similar. We do have a long way to go of course, but this is a good start. We all have to eat at some point right?
The dining reservation timeline hasn’t changed a lot. You still can make your reservations 60 days prior to arrival, unlike Disney World which is 180 day prior. One item most Disneyland visitors will notice that’s different is the requirement of a credit card to hold your reservation. This is the second direct from Disney World item. Unfortunately, a few people would reserve multiple days/times for their families at the same restaurant(s) which would make it challenging for others to get reservations. Thus Disney will now charge you $10 per person if you don’t arrive to your reservation or cancel it within 24 hours.
Using the system is really quite easy, and cuts out the need to email your requests or call Disneyland to make your reservations. This is truly the best part of the whole system. To make your reservations head to Disneyland Dining Reservations. You can also check other visitors reviews to see if any of the restaurants you are interested in.
