    I have ADR for Chef Mickey's on October 29 at 800. We have been checking website for earlier times without success. Is it possible to be seated early if we arrive earlier than ADR? Really want to get to observation deck to watch the fireworks!

    Hello, Robert,

    While I can't make any guarantees for your situation, I can share with you that we have on occasion arrived at  restaurants prior to our reservation time to see if there would be the possibility of being seated earlier with success most of the time.  If you are flexible with the time, you increase your odds of being able to dine prior to the fireworks.  

    Since the Crystal Palace is open throughout most of the day, it may even be worthwhile to stop by earlier in the day to see if you can actually switch your reservation to a different time.  

    Wishing you luck with getting seated earlier; have a great trip, too!
