There will be new health and safety measures, capacity limits, a new reservation system, and several rides, attractions, and restaurants that won’t be reopening yet. Things are certainly going to be different, but that’s not always a bad thing. In fact, we’re pretty excited about one new feature that’s coming to the parks in particular!
When Disney World reopened last year, the parks and resorts introduced the Mobile Walk-Up Waitlist feature. It’s a great way to score a meal at a table service restaurant if you didn’t get to make dining reservations! And now, Walk-Up Waitlist is going to be available at select Disneyland Resort restaurants as well.
With the new feature, you’ll be able to check dining availability right in the Disneyland app, or by walking up to the restaurant of your choice and scanning the QR code located near the entrance — no need to visit the host stand. If there’s walk-up availability at that time, you’ll be able to select your party and provide any dietary restrictions. Then, you just wait to be called back!
According to Disneyland Resort’s website, this new feature is available at Carthay Circle Lounge — Alfresco Dining and Lamplight Lounge in Disney California Adventure. We’ll make sure to keep you updated if it comes to any other restaurants, including those in the resorts or at Disneyland Park.
It’s important to note that walk-up availability changes throughout the day, so keep checking back if you can’t find anything at first. If you don’t have any luck throughout the day, there are several quick service options available around the resort, or you may be able to make a last-minute reservation at another table service spot!
