    Jay from MI Asked

    I realize there's a window for arrival at a FP+ attraction but is there a window for dining reservations? For example, if we have a reservation at a restaurant at 9:15 p.m. should we/can we arrive at 9:00? What if we're 5 min. late?

    Dear Jay,

    Thank you so much for visiting us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about planning ahead for your Advanced Dining Reservations at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Yes, you can absolutely arrive a few minutes early for your reservation (and in fact I recommend arriving a few minutes early anyway), and you can be a few minutes late if something comes up or you get slightly delayed in arriving. I don't recommend arriving more than five minutes late or so, because there is a possibility that they may not be able to seat you at that time.

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
