    We have an ADR in Disney Springs on the day we arrive. We won't be able to arrive early to Disney Springs, so what happens if we get there, and the parking garages are closed? With a dining reservation and Disney bus arrival, will we be allowed in?

    Hi Shannon! Welcome to planDisney!

    You'll be dining in Disney Springs before you know it! I just returned from the Most Magical Place on Earth and visited Disney Springs on two of the days I was there. I could easily spend full days there with all the shopping and dining available. On one of the evenings, I was able to snag a last-minute reservation for dinner at Paradiso 37, Taste of the Americas, and it was super yummy!

    I'm happy to tell you that on my many visits to Disney Springs since the reopening of the Walt Disney World Resort, I have always been able to get in ... and I've visited on some busy days! Using Walt Disney World complimentary bus transportation is a great idea since parking lots can fill up. Allow yourself extra time for waiting for the bus to arrive at your Disney Resort and for the temperature check that you will go through when you arrive. 

    Some dining locations have mobile check-in via the My Disney Experience mobile app. I highly recommend checking the app to see if your dining location offers it. It allows you to check-in once you are close to the restaurant, with most allowing you to check in 15-20 minutes early. Then, you will get a notification when your table is ready. It is super easy and such a time-saver!

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation, Shannon! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
