Here’s some info for any of you who are well into planning-mode for your next Disney vacation… . The ability to change certain aspects of your Advance Dining Reservations is now an option via your online Disney Account!
Here’s a look at the process… let’s say you found out you have some friends who will be visiting Disney World at the same time as you, and you would love for them to join you for the breakfast buffet you’ve lined up at Boma in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.
But you’ve already made your reservation! What’s a trip planner to do? Well, in the past, you could dial (407) WDW-DINE and ask to add more people to one of your Advance Dining Reservations (and please know that this option certainly still exists). Or, you could schedule an altogether new reservation online and cancel the standing reservation through your Disney Account.
But now you can streamline the online process: the ability to change your standing reservation is now available through My Disney Experience. You’ll find it listed on the right of your reservation information via your computer (please note: at the time of this writing, this feature is not yet available via the app on your smartphone or tablet).
So, what happens when you click “Change Reservation”?
You’ll see that you have the ability to alter the date, time or party size for your Advance Dining Reservation.
For instance, in our scenario above, you’d need to change your reservation to accommodate four people instead of two. Just select your new party size using the dropdown scroll…
… and any available times that can accommodate that change will populate on the screen.
Take your pick!
Then enter any requested information. TA-DA! You now have an Advance Dining Reservation for a party of four under your original Advance Dining Reservation confirmation number. No need to make an entirely new reservation at all!
The updated information now appears under your Dining Reservations on My Disney Experience.
And should you encounter another change of plans, no worries! The Change Reservation option still exists.
So, what do you think? Can you see this option coming in handy as you plan your Disney World or Disneyland vacation?
