    Hello moms and dads! I have some ADR's. 1st time going to WDW. Just wondering if we are to show up at the exact time of reservation or is there some recommendation of how long before ADR. 18 days!!! Love this panel! Don't know what I would do without it!

    Hi, Sonia!  You should try to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your advanced dining reservation time.  This allows you to check in at the podium, gather all the members of your party together, so you are ready to be seated, and if you are going to a character dining experience, it's also a great time to have the kids use the restrooms.

    I'm so glad you've enjoyed planning your trip with us!  18 days will be here before you know it, and I hope you are enjoying the most magical vacation ever!

    Thanks so much for your questions, Sonia!
