To reach the number of reservations you need you would first look up on the app what is available for spots. You can also call the desk and they will check for you. There are two reservation types available for each time block:
    • 1 person reservation
    • 2 person reservation
  • You can sign up for a combination of these to get your total number of people reserved. Note that you will only be able to sign up for one of each type within a single App account.

You would be able to see the number of reservations remaining by clicking on the desired reservation on the app.
