    What time do I need to get to my TS reservations. I keep seeing 30 minutes. Is this right? I don't want to waste touring time just sitting around a waiting area if I'm not going to get to my table until my reservation time. Is 10-15 minutes better?

    Hi Michelle!

    With so many fun things to see and experience at the Walt Disney World Resort, I can completely understand you not wanting to waste a single minute!

    When my family and I have table service dining reservations, we typically tend to arrive approximately 10-15 minutes before our reservation time. If you scroll through your dining reservation confirmation email, they recommend that you plan to arrive at least five minutes prior to your reservation time to check in. It is also important to note that it is recommended that you allow up to 1.5 hours to travel to your dining location when using Complementary Resort Transportation. Lastly, please allow approximately 15 minutes walking time from the Main Entrance to your dining location, if dining in one of the four Disney Theme Parks.

    Even though you want to see and experience all of the amazing things that the Walt Disney World Resort offers, make sure to take some time to slow down and soak up all of the magic. I have found that when I slow down not only do I feel more relaxed; I also usually end up having an even more magical time!

    Have a wonderful vacation!
