    Once I make my dining reservations, how much "leeway" time do I have before or after the reservation time? Is there a 30 minute grace period? Thank You!

    Hi Beckie,

    Generally, they will state that you should try to arrive for your ADR about 15-20 minutes before your reservation time to check-in and that you do have a 15 minute late grace period as you speak with a cast member when making an advanced dining reservation, although I have found there is no problem if you are stuck somewhere and make it up to 30 minutes late.  You may have to wait a while for another table assignment, but I am sure they will still be able to accommodate you seeing as you did have an ADR.  Things do happen....especially with sticking to a schedule with possible transportation problems, etc.... Even in the most magical place on earth do minor setbacks happen and WDW does take this into account!  So sit back and enjoy the ride and most of all have a magical time with no worries.....Hakuna Matata!

    Best wishes,
