    What happens if we're late for a character meal or any meal that requires a reservation?

    Hello Roselyn,

    In general the Disney Restaurants have a 20 to 30 minute window before they cancel your reservation or mark you as a no-show, but with that said, I have quite a few times been caught in transportation problems/delays and arrived after they had cancelled my reservation (within reason).  I have found them to be very accommodating when this happens and either they have gotten me in right away or they have found another time slot to squeeze me in.  I have never had this happen at a super popular location such as Cinderella's Royal Table, but where there's a will, there's a way and I am sure everything will be done within their power to accommodate you within a certain time frame of course.  Here's hoping that you don't have time troubles on your upcoming vacation and that you may enjoy all of your fabulous dining experiences!

    Best wishes,
