    I'm totally new to this! We have reservations for 4 pm on the day we arrive at the Garden Grill restaurant in November. If by chance we are a little late will they still accept us? Thanks.

    Greetings Rebecca! Congratulations on your upcoming Walt Disney World Vacation! I completely understand your concern in making sure you don't miss out on dining at The Garden Grill Restaurant at Epcot on your day of arrival. To be perfectly honest, I have been 5-10 minutes late for an Advanced Dining Reservation on one occasion and the restaurant was still able to accommodate us. With that being said, we do usually arrive 10-15 minutes prior to our Advanced Dining Reservations. I have also heard of guests being late for Advanced Dining Reservations and then having a wait due to the restaurant needing to work them in. I would think that at 4:00 p.m. it would be much easier to be easily accommodated rather than 7:00 p.m. if you do encounter any delays in making your Advanced Dining Reservation on time. You may also want to consider pushing back your Advanced Dining Reservation a little if there is availability at The Garden Grill Restaurant to give yourself adequate time should you have any delays. I hope this helps! Please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional questions. Best wishes for a Magical Trip, Rebecca!
    Happy Planning,
