    how early do you need to arrive for your character dining reservation

    Hi Sherry! My husband would laugh if he knew his perpetually-late wife was answering a question about arriving anywhere early! I think ten minutes before your scheduled dining reservation time is plenty early. I'm generally one who arrives right on time for my character meals, if I'm lucky, and I've never had a problem being seated. However, at some restaurants, you do encounter a line at the check-in podium, so arriving a few minutes early ensures that you'll be checked in by your reserved time and seated soon thereafter.

    Hope you have fun dining with the characters! Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We're happy to help!
