    Hello and THANKYOU so much for this panel! Its awesome and so helpful! If I have dinner reservations at Cinderellas Castle at 5:30 do I need to get there early? Also if I have reservations at any place do we need to get there early or expext a wait still?

    Hi Lisa,

    Thank you for asking the questions or we wouldn't be needed. We are so glad to be able to help. A good rule to go by, and what the Disney Cast members will tell you when making your dining reservations, is to arrive at the restaraunt fifteen minutes prior to your reservation time. Check in with the host or hostess and they will then seat at the first available table for your party size. Typically there is still a small wait but it usually is not long. It will depend on what time of the day you are dining and how crowded the restaraunt is. It is always better to arrive early and wait a few minutes then show up late and risk the chance of losing your reservation, especially at the Castle where those tables are a hard thing to come by.

    Hope you have a fantastic time at Cinderella Castle-it is an amazing place!
