    Hi, We love your panel, It really helps!! On an average how long does it take to see any one attraction? Also, what if we are a little late, say by 5 mins. for a reserved restaurant. Can we can and let them know we are on the way? Thanks!

    Hi Chitra!

          Thanks for all of the Moms Panel love!  The range of time to see each attraction is very wide from 5 minutes to 2 hours depending on the time of year and the crowd level in that particular park on that particular day.  You can minimize your time waiting in lines by arriving 30 minutes before a park is scheduled to open, riding the most popular rides first, and then working your way to the rides that typically have lower wait times later on in the day.  Typically, if you are a few minutes late you still are able to get a seat at most restaurants, but it is really up to that particular restaurant.  I will tell you that I have been 15 to 20 minutes late before and still have gotten seated.  With the new credit card reservation on some Table Service restaurants, they may not be as lenient with showing up late for your Advanced Dining Reservation.  You could call and let them know that you are coming if you knew that particular restaurant's phone number.  I have learned to allow more time in my schedule to travel to the location where I am dining and it never hurts to arrive there early because you may just get seated earlier than your Advanced Dining Reservation!

    I hope that your next Walt DIsney World vacation is filled with magic and memories!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
