    I have several ADR for our upcoming trip in November. How early we should show up? For example, Chef Mickey's is at 8:10 p.m. for dinner and I believe they do a photo shoot before you go in to eat. If we arrive at 7:45 p.m. would we be seated early?

    Hi Amy!
    I LOVE Chef Mickey's!!
    Good thinking in wanting to be prepared, but it is not necessary to be early, especially a half hour early. To keep things running smoothly, Disney will not typically seat parties in advance of their reserved time. The picture of the family takes a mere minute or two and generally takes place right before you are seated. I think you will be fine if you arrive by 8PM to check in.
    I hope this helps and I wish you all a Magical vacation!! :)
