Booking dining reservations is easy and if you have any special request for a certain diet or seating accommodations this is the place to note them. 

Once you have uploaded the Disneyland App  you will be able to see any plans that you have made so far (hotel and park reservations)

Disneyland App

and if you don’t see them make sure that your reservations a have been added to your account on your phone. 


After opening the app, you will tap on the plus sign that will take you to this screen. 

You’ll be able to pick whatever you would like to add to your reservation here. But to add a dining reservation, tap “Check Dining Availability.”

Then you will be taken to the check dining availability screen. No matter if you are booking for just you/your family/friends you’ll want to include your whole dining party when choosing party size.  Note that it you are not able to book more than 60 days out from your reservation. So if you are going for multiple days you will have to do this for each individual date. 

Pick the date and meal that you are looking for. If you are looking for a particular time, you also have that option.

Dining availability options will show up; in the bottom corner of the screen, there is a filter button, which will help to narrow it down by location. Choose the time that will work best for you. 

If you don’t see one play around with the times instead of meals, sometimes you’ll have better luck.

Verify that the date, time, and party size is correct.

Scroll to the bottom of the page, and you will see the option to add any special dietary or accessibility requests. Along with adding your reservation hold a credit card. Your credit card will only be charged before you dine if you either miss your reservation or cancel within the cancellation period.

If you have any special requests, this is where you will make a note of them. There should be no need to contact Disney unless someone in your party has four or more dietary restrictions, requires pureed food, or a medically-restrictive diet. These requests should be made at most 14 days before the trip. Contact to ask for a Special Dietary Request Form.
