Disneyland Dining Reservations Via Email Now Available

Great news for us Disneyland food fans! Restaurant reservations can now be booked via email! Remember, reservations in Disneyland can be booked 60 days in advance.

Say Hello to Tigger at Minnie's Breakfast at the Plaza in Disneyland!

Here’s how it works:

  • Guests may now email their dining reservation requests to dine@disneyland.com
  • 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:
    1. Name of the restaurant or experience you’d like to book
    2. Requested reservation date and meal period (Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner)
    3. Total number of guests in your party
    4. Your name and phone number
  • Remember: Your request is not confirmed until you’ve received a confirmation number

See our list of Disneyland table-service restaurants here!

As always, you can also book your reservations by phone on the Disney Dine Line (714-781-DINE).

    Made my reservations for Cafe Orleans through email. Seemed to go just fine, but sooo different from WDW!

    Dining reservations by email? Disneyland really is cutting edge! What can we expect next? A MySpace page?

    (Seriously, if WDW has had online reservations available since at least 2010, when we went there, how are email reservations at Disneyland any sort of innovation? And if they have the system in place for one park, how difficult could it be to implement it for another?)

    Heather — Thanks for the review! I know — it is very different from WDW, isn’t it?

    Andrew — I definitely hear your point! But I think there may be a reason why they haven’t done online dining reservations until now. Basically, Disneyland doesn’t see the same 1.) Sheer numbers of visitors, or 2.) kind of demand for dining reservations that Disney World sees. Most people who go to Disneyland go for one or two days, and they tend to eat counter service — which is why the counter service there is so specialized and upgraded (e.g. very few WDW counter service spots use real plates and silverware, but MANY Disneyland counter service spots do; plus, the counter service food quality is a bit higher in Disneyland). Whereas MORE people go to Disney World, and they go for longer periods of time, which means they do plan to eat table service in the parks and resorts. It’s just a matter of demand. Disneyland hasn’t needed to create an online service for this sort of thing, so they didn’t do so. Plus, there isn’t much incentive when you see the kind of double bookings and no-shows that happen with Disney World’s online reservations systems.
