    Hi moms.In the restaurants w/character dinning which is the estimate time u spend having lunch? (including the time you spent waiting to be seated, which sometimes can be up to 1hr) I'm vacationing in the middle of October. Thanks!!!!

    Hi Adrian - it really does depend on the restaurant, but I usually plan for the actual meal (including time to see characters) to be about an hour and a half.  I've never waited an hour to be seated for a character meal (when I've had an advance dining reservation) but I have waited a half hour.  That said, I'd probably dedicate about two to two and a half hours to the total meal.

    I hope that helps!  Have a great vacation!
