New Way to Make dining Reservations at the Disneyland Resort

New Way to Make Dining Reservations at the Disneyland Resort

On April 12th the Disney Parks Blog announced that there is a new way to make a reservation at the restaurants at the resort.

You can still call Disneyland Dining at (714) 781-DINE (714 781-3463) but now you can also make reservations by e-mail. Just send an e-mail to

Here is how it works:

  • Guests may now email their dining reservation requests to
  • Requests will be reviewed the same day, when received during the hours of 7 a.m. – 9 p.m., 7 days a week
  • Requests received after hours will be reviewed the next day
  • Guests may request Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and Studio Disney 365 reservations through this email address as well
  • Email requests should include the following information:

o   Name of the restaurant or experience you’d like to book

o   Requested reservation date and meal period (Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner)

o   Total number of guests in your party

o   Your name and phone number

  • Remember: Your request is not confirmed until you’ve received a confirmation number.

Carthay Circle Restaurant at Disney California Adventure park will open on June 15. Dining reservations are not available at this time, but keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog and @Disneyland on Twitter for updates on when the booking window for this brand-new restaurant will open. Click here for a link to a list of locations accepting the e-mail reservations.

While I think this is a good idea in general I’ve never found it too hard to get a reservation at the majority of Disneyland Resort restaurants. Usually I call Disneyland Dining as I drive to the park and make my reservations. There are several restaurants that it is a good idea to call several days ahead. Those are the Blue Bayou and Café Orleans.

I would be concerned that this process could take several back and forth e-mails before getting your reservation time scheduled. Personally I think I’ll continue to call so I can get not the meal period but time I want.
