    When should my family arrive for our ADRs? Should we show up 15-30 minutes before our scheduled time? Does it depend on where we are eating? We have ADRs at Crystal Palace,Be Our Guest,Akershus,Chef Mickey's,TuskerHouse,Ohana's,Hollywood&Vine. Thanks!

    Hi Diana!

    It looks like you have a great week of eating planned:)  Trying out new restaurants, and re-visiting favorites is one of my favorite parts of our Disney trips!!

    Disney Dining recommends being at the restaurant no less than ten minutes before your reservation.  I usually build in a little extra "padding" in case transportation takes longer than planned.  I would hate to miss the yummy food just because I was late!  If it does look like I am going to be a few minutes late, I try to call and let them know.  This way they will be watching for you!

    I hope this helps!  Have a wonderful trip and enjoy your meals!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
