    How strict are they about showing up 5 minutes late for your reservation? We would like to see Davy Jones pn 4/6 at 5:15 then have reservations for the Biergarten at 6:20. I don't want to move my reservation as we want a good seat for illumination.

    Hi Pamela!

    Honestly, Disney is pretty understanding when it comes to dining reservations and I don't think you'd have a problem showing up 5 minutes late. However, if it is much later than that, you may find a delay in being seated (depending on who had shown up/tables available/etc).

    Personally, if I suspected that I'd be a few minutes late, I would try to move my dinner reservation to 6:30 or 6:45. Since Illuminations is at 9pm, that should give you plenty of time to eat and find a great location to watch the fireworks.

    Alternatively, if you find the show is running long, you could also plan on leaving just a few minutes early so you make it over to the Biergarten on time.

    Hope the timing works out for you! Have fun!
