    We are staying at POR for our first family trip with 9, 7 5 and 1 yr old from 4/15-4/20. Doing several character dining reservations (with the deluxe dining plan) how long do sit down meals generally take?

    Hey Melissa! That's a great question! You are going to love the Character Dining Experiences at Disney!! Many of our most cherished Walt Disney World memories that my kids talk about most involve getting to see their favorite Disney Characters up close at Character Dining Experiences.  Although each dining location can vary,  in my experience we have found table-service meals to take a minimum of 1 - 1 1/2 hours.  I am including the time that you sign-in at the hostess stand to leaving the restaurant.  Please know that although you have an Advanced Dining Reservation,  you may have a short wait before being seated at a table.  I hope this helps!  Please write back if you have any questions regarding a specific Character Dining Experience or if I can assist you with any other vacation planning needs. Best wishes for a Magically Delicious Trip!
    Bon Appétit,
