    What sort of time window do we have to make it to our dining reservations? Do we have to arrive exactly at the reservation time, or can we come up to a certain number of minutes late without losing our reservation?

    Hi Alexis,

    The restaurants request that you arrive 10-15 early for all Advanced Dining Reservations. You really are going to want to make every effort to arrive on time. Some of the restaurants will hold your reservation for up to 10 minutes late but that is not guaranteed. Due to the popularity of the restaurants, they really do run at capacity the majority of the time and they try to keep things running smoothly by sticking to reservation times.

    I hope this helps and that you have a wonderful vacation,
