    What a wonderful panel!! I have ADR at Coral Reef and Garden Grill for my DS 7 and me. My ? is, can I ask on my reservations to be seated by a window to best view the fish and the park as the restaurant rotates, or is it just wherever they sit you?


    Thank you for the compliment!  We love what we do.  :)

    When you call to make your Advance Dining Reservations (ADRs) you will simply be booking the restaurant and the time.  (Have a pen handy to record your confirmation numbers)  The cast member you speak to will advise you to arrive about 15 minutes before your seating time so you can check in at the podium.  This is the point where you should make special seating requests. 

    The cast member at the restaurant will note your request and try to accommodate you.  Definitely be aware that the request is no guarantee.  Both of your requests are for the most popular seating areas in these restaurants, so lots of people will be asking for the same thing and not everyone can be seated in the prime spots.  If you really have your heart set on it then be sure to tell the cast member that you do not mind waiting longer if they can get you seated in  the right spot.  Patience will definitely improve your chances!  :)

    Have a wonderful vacation!
