    What is the grace period on showing up for a dining reservation? In other words, if you have a noon reservation, how late can you get there without it being cancelled?

    Hello Allison!  This was a question that I needed to make some extra calls to our dining cast members in order to get some answers.  The general rule is to arrive at your restaurant fifteen minutes prior to your reservation.  If for some reason you are not able to make your time, they will try to hold your reservation for fifteen to twenty minutes.  So, if you do have a noon reservation, they will begin filling your spot at 12:15 or 12:20.  If you should arrive after these times, they will try to fit you in, but it will not be guaranteed.   So to be on the safe side, you will probably want to follow the general rule and arrive fifteen minutes prior to your scheduled time.

    Please let me know if I can help you with any other questions you may have.  Have a magical vacation and a wonderful day!
