    I've heard that when you arrive at your ADR you may still have a bit of a wait. If you arrive early, will they try to get you in early or will they not let you "arrive" until your time? Thanks!

    Hi Melinda!

          Keep in mind that an Advanced Dining Reservation is more like a Priority Seating Reservation. You should plan on showing up at least 5-10 minutes before your Advanced Dining Reservation time. When the next table for your size of dinning party comes available and you are next on the list, then your party will be seated to eat. Once you are seated your only job is to order what you want and enjoy some delicious food! My recommendation to you is to show up early for your Advanced Dining Reservation approximately 10 to 15 minutes early to have a chance of being seated early.  Sometimes I have been seated right away when I have arrived early for my Advanced Dining Reservations, but it is based on how busy the restaurant is at the particular time and if tables for your party size are available.

    I hope that your next Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
