    We are booked at several character and signature dining experiences. I have heard that even with reservations you may need to wait upwards of an hour before seated. Is this true? How long is average wait time in mid May. Thank you

    Hi, Sheila!

    If you have an Advance Dining Reservation, you should not have to wait an hour for your table.  Plan to check in at the restaurant podium about 10 minutes prior to your reservation.  You will be given a pager that will let you know when your table is ready.  Always ask how long it will be for you to be seated so you will know if they are running behind schedule.   They will be able to tell you how long you should be waiting, and feel free to check back with them if your wait gets too long.  If I had to guess, I would say my family is usually seated within about 10 minutes of our reservation time.  

    If there is an extended delay, this might give you a few extra minutes to browse a gift shop or explore a new resort.  The cast members will make every effort to get you seated as quickly as possible.
