    How long will they hold a dining reservation?

    Hi, Pat!
    Thanks for reaching out to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    In my experience, I have tried very hard to make it to all of my dining reservations on time. If I hit a transportation challenge or a major change in my plans that get me there late, I have found that my table may be given to someone else. But because I had the reservation, I have the opportunity to wait for a seat once I get to the restaurant. That wait may be a while, but I'll still get the chance to eat at that Table Service restaurant

    I hope that eases your mind if you have a tight reservation time!

    Let me know if can help you with any additional questions leading up to your unforgettable Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

I’m a mom, wife and goldendoodle dog owner who is not afraid to ride a fast roller coaster again and again. I love to travel - which is good since I telework with a job in Washington, DC. I’ve visited Disneyland and Walt Disney World multiple times and it’s fed into my belief that you’re never too old to have fun. I run when I can and recently earned my runDisney Coast to Coast medal! I also love photography and founded an online special needs community. Learn More About Jen
