    Hi Kelly!

    Typically, I plan on at least an hour for each character meal that I have on my itinerary. I like to enjoy the experience without rushing through it. After all, you should be able to enjoy it - you're paying for it!

    Occasionally, if you arrive early, a Disney restaurant will be able to seat you early. It never hurts to try! Also, I would recommend calling Disney Dining at 407-939-7675 and inquiring about moving your meal out by about a half hour to an hour. If you are unable to make the change the first time you call, be persistent and try calling back a few times!

    Hope you have a wonderful trip!
