View Full Version : How do I make seating requests?

09-06-2007, 02:45 PM
Hello there folks! How are you all doing? I'm good and I have all of my ADR's all set. However I know that there are some really good seats with great views of different areas of the park, close to something cool (ex. the aquarium at Coral Reef). How do I made requests for something like that? Do I do it now before I'm even at WDW by calling the WDW DINE Line, or do I have to wait until I'm actually checking in with the hostess (at time of ADR).
Thanks for your help on this (and every other thing I've been curious about!) :)

You ask when you check in at the podium.

Note things like, sitting a row or tier back from the aquarium is a better (more expansive) view than the tables right up against the glass.

If you have reservations at Rose & Crown in the evening (i.e. with the intention of dining outdoors and seeing IllumiNations from your table) you can request to be seated outdoors, but you have to take the first table they offer you.

You make your request at the podium when you check in but be prepared to have to wait a bit longer for your seating. And remember that it's just a request, not a guarantee.

another tip is if you're celebrating something, like birthday, anniversary, or anything at all, let them know when you make your adr's. I didn't realize when we told them we were coming for our honeymoon, we'd get so many treats:cloud9: we got a terrific view at Ohana and several places gave us glasses of champagne or something special "just because"... it was so magical!!!:love:

also, I'd arrive early just tell them you're willing to wait if that would help :)
