    Anyone care to share their experience with opening up The Wave at 7:30am?

    We have an ADR for then and I'm curious if/when you can actually get in to start eating.. Do they open a little earlier and are rocking and rolling at 7:30 or are they slow to start? Any tips..?

    I'm thinking we will show up about 7:15 to be ready to eat.. Watch the TV in the check in area until it opens if they are not open.. I would like to eat and be out in 20minutes to walk to MK in time or close to rope drop.. Not required but is nice to do.. :)

    1) Eateries open on-time.
    2) It is a manpower scheduling issue.
    3) Although this is a special day for you, it is an ordinary day for workers/managers.

    If you want to eat someplace and be completely done in 20 minutes go to the Contempo Cafe and get quick service. While they are fairly fast and efficient most of the time at the Wave it is highly unlikely you would get seated, order drinks, get drinks, order food, have it cooked, delivered to the table, eat, and then get your bill, pay it, and get the receipt back in 20 minutes- That is an unreasonable expectations. I have had breakfast take around 30-40 minutes and everyone at the table knew exactly what they wanted when we sat down.

    I thought it was buffet.. With order as an option.

    This is one morning we are not requiring a rope drop but just seeing how it flows there..

    I usually pay while we are eating so when we are done we can just leave since it takes a bit to get the TIW done then tap the band then get the receipt to sign.
