    Hi! I was wondering if it's possible to arrive early for a reservation and actually be seated. I made a reservation at GF at the same time my daughter's school is marching in the electric parade at MK. I have called and asked for help but there is nothing?

    Hey Erik!

    Marching down Main Street, USA was one of the highlights of my high school band trip back in the day.  It's truly a magical experience!  Your daughter is going to love it!

    You can always arrive at the restaurant early and ask to be seated early, however, chances are probably slim they will be able to seat you any earlier than your Advanced Dining Reservation.  I would keep checking the Disney Dining website each day to see if any earlier reservations come open (even check up to the day of your meal).  

    I'm sending a ton of pixie dust your way and hoping you can secure an earlier reservation.  I hope your daughter has a great time marching in the parade as well.  Please let me know if there's anything else I can help you with.

    Have a magical day!
