    We are going to WDW for first time next January with our daughters 4 and 2 years old. We book four character dining experiences. If for example we have a table at 4pm, how many time before we must arrive to the restaurants? It is a line to go in?

    Hi Alejandro,

    Your daughters are going to have such a magical first visit to Walt Disney World!

    I would recommend that you aim to arrive at each of your character meals 15-20 minutes prior to the time of your dining reservations. Some times, you will be seated straight away and other times, you will be given a pager when you arrive at the restaurant and asked to return to be seated once the pager goes off.

    There may be a line when you arrive at each restaurant although it will move fairly quickly and there shouldn't be too long of a wait before your family are seated at your table.

    Wishing you a magical trip filled with memories that will last a lifetime!
