    Hello! I will be visiting Walt Disney World this December! I have made a FastPass+ for Big Thunder railroad from 11:05 - 12:05. I also have a reservation at The Plaza Restaurant for 11:05. Will I be able to eat quickly and get to Big Thunder in time?

    Hi Alyssa!

         Wow, it is so awesome that your Walt Disney World vacation is going to be this December!  Getting to your FastPass+ selection for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad may be tight if your Advanced Dining Reservation for the Plaza Restaurant is at 11:05 am and your Fast Pass+ selection is 11:05 am to 12:05 pm. Typically for Table Service restaurants in Walt Disney World, they take on average of 90 minutes to 120 minutes.  That being said, your meal at the Plaza Restaurant can be done in less than an hour if it is not too busy and you order right when you sit down (look at the menus online and decide what you want to order before getting into the restaurant).  Also I would highly recommend showing up at least 15 minutes early for your Advanced Dining Reservation at the Plaza Restaurant because there is a possibility of getting seated earlier than 11:05 am which would help you to finish your meal and get to your FastPass+ selection within the time period that it is for. 

    I hope that your December Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
