“Advance Reservations” for restaurants

Walt Disney World For Families 101 
 “Advance Reservations” for restaurants
It’s easy, it’s free, and for most Disney World restaurants it entails no commitment — yet you get seated for meals quickly, instead of waiting in line.
Advance Reservations (formerly called Priority Seating) is, like Fastpass, a free and convenient service that rescues you from line-ups. Despite the name change, at most restaurants “Advance Reservations” is not really a reservation system: i.e. the restaurant will not be holding a table for your arrival. Rather, when you arrive at the restaurant, you’ll be fast-tracked to the next available table. Arrive about fifteen minutes before your appointed time; your wait time will probably be 15 to 30 minutes, maybe less.

A nice thing about these Advance Reservations is that typically you’re under no obligation to show up.However, if you’re asked for a credit card to assure your booking, this is a different type of arrangement, i.e. a real reservation. A growing number of restaurants at Disney World are now moving to committed reservations; deposits may even be required.

For example: at the popular Character Breakfast at Cinderella’s Royal Table, you’ll need to pay up front with a credit card, though you can get a refund if you cancel 24 hours in advance.
