    what time do we need to check in for a character dining reservation?

    Hi Terence!  Character dining experiences are great at Walt Disney World!  Due to their popularity, Disney recommends checking in about 15-20 minutes early for your planned reservation.   I would also definitely ask the concierge or front desk at your resort about traveling times to your restaurant.  Depending on where you are coming from and going to, you want to leave lots of extra time to make it there.  There are shops and other things to walk around in near most of the restaurants.  Or you can just enjoy getting off of your feet after a long day of park-hopping fun!  Have a great trip!
