    Hello! Would someone please explain to me how ADR's work. I know they are not your typical dining reservation you'd make at a restaurant at home. Thanks!

    Hi Erica!  The Advanced Dining Reservation system at Disney assures you that you will be able to enjoy a meal at the restaraunt of your choosing on a particular day.  If you make a 6:00pm reservation and arrive at that time you will then be given the next available table for your group.  This means that you most likely will still have to wait but you will definitely be seated for your meal.  Generally our waits are no more then 10-15 minutes but some restaurants can have a higher wait time like California Grill because guests like to linger and watch the views from the top of the Contemporary resort.  Also if you have a large group you might have a little extra wait time due to fewer larger tables in a restaurant.
