    I wanted to make a reservation at be our guest for my last day of doing the Disney college program. The only opening for the reservation would be at 9 and I would miss the fireworks. How late do you have to be to miss your reservation?

    Hiya Reid,

    Welcome to planDisney, and congratulations on your Disney College program experience. You are the magic, and thank you for making magic happen for Guests during your time as a Cast Member. One of my favorite people (and fellow panelist), Ana Paula, was a part of the Disney College program, so I know how memorable that experience is.

    Great question about dining, Reid; Be Our Guest Restaurant is one of my favorite places to dine at Walt Disney World Resort, and I have fond memories of grabbing an early dinner from there and then rushing to Main Street, U.S.A. to catch Happily Ever After Presented by Pandora Jewelry . Such an incredible core memory for me! In my experience, Cast Members are generally flexible for an up to 15-minute grace period for a dining reservation. However, this is entirely up to the Cast Members’ discretion, so I cannot guarantee that they will be able to seat you if you are late to your 9 pm reservation. I recommend checking back to see if any earlier dining reservations open up for Be Our Guest Restaurant, Reid. As I’m sure you know, Guests’ plans change all the time, so often, last-minute reservations pop up closer to the day. Getting an earlier reservation will allow you to enjoy the show without feeling like you have to rush to get to your dining.

    I hope this was helpful, Reid. If you need anything else, please come back and see us.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
