Make your dining reservations online starting Oct 3rd

Beginning October 3, you can make dining reservations online. This new service will make it easier to book a meal at restaurants in Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks, at the Downtown Disney District and at the hotels of the Disneyland Resort.

With the new online booking option, the dine@disneyland.com email reservation service will no longer be offered, but those wishing to make a reservation over the phone may still call 714-781-DINE.

A fee of $10 per person will be applied if a guest does not show to their reservation or if the reservation isn’t canceled the day before. Canceling your reservation will be easy with the new online service – simply log in to make cancellations right there.

Unleash the Villains, Disney’s Friday the 13th LTM happened this past friday.

And much like the 24 hour parties, this event was poorly planned for those who tried to get in. For those who did get in it was Hellish! According to reports, Disney has over one million passholders. They do this, on a nice warm friday night, with no blackout dates. What did they think only a few will show up? They ran out of the special food they advertised, they sold out on event shirts. They need to plan these things better!

GAC becomes DAS (Disabled Assistance System) Beginning Wed Oct 9th.

The Guest Assistance Card is being discontinued beginning Wed Oct 9th. People with disabilities will no longer to able to bypass people in lines. The new process will be as follows:

Guest with wheelchairs can wait in lines that can accommodate them. Like all rides in DCA. (I’m not clear how it works for non accessible rides.

Guests who are eligible for a DAS goes to City Hall and has their photo taken.

Once they have the Card guests will go to a Kiosk and get a time issued to them as to when they can ride the ride. Time will be based on the current wait time. Minus 10 or 15 minutes for travel time. So if a ride that is 90 minutes then their time stamp will be for 75 minutes after the stapm is issued.

Only the person who is photographed can be issued the timestamp. So they can’t transfer it.
