    How does ADR work when you arrive at the restaurant?

    Hello, Nadine.  

    When you have made an Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR) at any of the Walt Disney World table service restaurants, you simply need to report to the restaurant at the time of your reservation  (you may even want to arrive 10-15 minutes early).  When you arrive, there will be a check-in podium where a cast member will ask your name to confirm your reservation.  I do always keep a record of our confirmation number as a precaution, but I have never needed to use it. Then, they will confirm the number of guests in your party and if there are any children in your party and if you are on the Disney Dining Plan. Once checked-in, you will likely be handed a beeper of sorts to notify when your table is ready.  However, there are sometimes when you may be brought directly to your table upon checking-in.  Then the best part, you get to begin enjoying your Disney Dining experience!

    If you have any further questions about Walt Disney World or Disney Dining, please let us know. We are happy to help. -Kara
