    Coming in May on the DDP! For our ADR's, do we arrive at our restaurant at our resv time or do we need to arrive earlier than listed? Ex: If our resv. "arrival time" listed is 4pm, do we show up at 4pm, or earlier? I've read some different things

    Hi Noell,

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  You are going to absolutely love using the Disney Dining Plan, my family and I use it on every visit.  It is a great way to dine at some of Disney's fabulous restaurants!  Typically guests are asked to arrive no earlier than 15 minutes prior to their reservation time, to ensure a prompt seating.  By arriving 15 minutes early, you will usually be checked in and seated by your reservation time.  Not to worry, if you arrive a few minutes early, or a few minutes late, you will still be seated as quickly as possible, once a table becomes available.

    I hope that answers your question Noell.  If you have any other questions as you continue to plan your Walt Disney World Resort Vacation please let me know.  I would be happy to help.
