    I know there are many variables, but in general how long does it take a family of 4 to enjoy a table service meal? My family are not fast eaters. Is an hour 15 minutes enough for planning purposes, or should I go with 1 1/2 hours (or more)?

    Hello Susan! Thanks for stopping by with your question.
    This is a difficult question, because the time you will spend at a table service restaurant will vary accordingly to your family. It usually takes my family around one hour for having a good meal at Disney table service restaurants. For Character Dining Experiences or Signature Dining, I would consider at least one hour and a half. 
    Hope this helps your planning. Please, come back to visit us again if you have further questions.
    Wishing you a magical day!
