    Hi moms, we are coming do WDW in March, I making reservations for dinner at several resorts. If we arrive early for our meal is it ok to take a wander around the different resorts, get a drink etc before we dine.

    Hi, Barbara!

    Not only is it OK to arrive early to your dining reservation, I recommend it!  I love exploring resorts, checking out their shops and seeing what their pools looks like.  This is a great way to see where you might want to stay on your next magical vacation!  

    When you arrive, check-in at the restaurant podium.  You will be given a pager.  Make sure to ask how far the pager signal is so you do not wander off too far!   You can also ask where the nearest bar is so you can enjoy a beverage before dinner.  

    I also like arriving early to avoid rushing.  After a day in the parks, and nice relaxing dinner is just perfect.  Enjoy!
