After months of perusing menus and restaurant reviews you logged into your My Disney Experience account at the 180 day mark and made your Advance Dining Reservations (ADRs). All your ducks are in a row. You fire up a trip countdown app on your phone in anticipation of your impeccably planned trip.
Fast forward a few months. Your aunt Arista and cousin Andrina, Tampa residents, will be in Orlando for a conference during your visit. They haven’t seen you since your sister’s wedding and hope to join you for dinner. The day they suggest just happens to be the one on which you have an Advance Dining Reservation for ‘Ohana.
Cancelling the reservation or excluding your family from the experience are not acceptable options; however, neither is missing out on the out-of-this-world bread pudding. What’s a girl to do?
Thanks to some improvements to the My Disney Experience website, you don’t have to choose between your aunt Arista’s sparkling conversation and the all-you-care-to-eat food at ‘Ohana. Instead of cancelling the reservation, or attempting to re-book with a larger party size via My Disney Experience, or calling 407-WDW-DINE, you can log in and modify your existing reservation. Let’s a take a closer look at the process.
DIStracted Tip: As of today, this feature is only available via the website and not via the My Disney Experience app. Of course, you can always call 407-WDW-DINE if necessary.
Once you log into your My Disney Experience account, head to your “My Reservations and Tickets” under the “Plan and Manage” section of your account. Select the dining reservation you want to modify.
Click on “Change Reservation.” At this point you can change the date, time or party size of your existing Advance Dining Reservation. In this case, update the party size by using the drop down menu and click “Search.”
You will see a screen displaying times available for your new party size. Luckily, the same reservation time is available. Click on the desired reservation time and click “Change.”
Finally, you’ll be prompted to enter the name(s) of the additional Guests in your party, and then you’re done!
What if Aunt Arista and Cousin Andrina back out? No worries, you can always go back and change your party size again!
