    Hi, ? re ADR's. Bookng CP at MK avail times 8:05am prty of 4, 8:10am prty of 3, 8:20am prty of 2. Why diff seatng times for diff prty size? Why are time every 5 mins? How does this work? When do the Characters come out if people are sitting every 5 min?

    Hi Kerri!  The advanced dining reservations becomes like a huge puzzle for the restaurants.  They have several different table configurations and thus try to gauge how long a party will be seated during their meal before booking another party for the same table.  They never know if someone will decide to linger and when that happens it can throw the whole timing off but they certainly try their best. 

    The characters come through constantly and if you are seated and just miss one then you of course will be able to stay until that character makes the rounds again. It is constant so it doesn't matter when you are there as you will be seeing everyone by the time you have finished with the meal.

    If you have a large group and could only get several reservations and are split up make sure you let the cast member at the check-in desk know that all the reservations are together. They will then do their best to seat you at the same time so you are eating and on the same timing schedule.

    No will be able to get great photo opportunities with all the characters there that day!
