Guys, girls....Why are we over thinking this. While I thank the OP for a great tip, we should take that 15 min. thing into consideration. All this when to get in line is pointless.

If u have a 5:00 adr. and you get there at 4:30, judge by the size of the line. If you think you might be cutting it close wait till 4:35 then get in line wait to get to front which may be anywhere between 4:45 and 4:59. Either way you are still ahead of schedule. If you get there at 4:25 and its a long long line then just get on at that point. In 20 minutes of waiting on line you'll be at the desk and 15 mins. ahead of schedule. Or if you'd like wait another 5 minutes prior to getting on that line therefore arriving at front desk at 4:50....Still 10 mins ahead of schedule. Just my opinion.

Ate dinner there's at night. 6:40 reservation time. We got to the area faster than we planned (6:15) and tried to check in, we were told to return at 6:30 and it went beautifully. There was not a long line and we waited maybe 10 minutes.

People who are hoping to get walk ins are also in the line.

Actually, we like that they are doing this and hope it is at all restaurants. Part of the problem in our experience is people showing up very early because they couldn't get the time they wanted. Happens more at breakfast when we are waiting to check in for 8 am ADR and someone in front of us has a 9:30 ADR but want to eat now and get into park early. In the past Disney has received many complaints that reservations were so far behind and people had to be at a restaurant for hours.
Just like the Fastpass system, the abusers will complain about time enforcement but we are all for it. Looking forward to being able to plan the day better.

In December we were told at all restaurants except 1 that they can no longer check you in any sooner than 10 minutes before your seating time. I thought it was just because it was (early) December, but maybe this is a new rule that is being implemented.

In January, I was checked in super early for a lot of meals - more than an hour before my ADR time in a few restaurants.

I'm guessing it depends how busy the place is.

That's exactly what it is...
