Believe it or not, the Priority Seating system hasn't been around forever! Please contribute tidbits about previous reservation systems and the history of Priority Seating. I remember on our first visit in 1992, guests wishing to dine at Epcot were encouraged to make reservations upon entering the park. As far as I know, you could not make them in advance. I vaguely recall some strange setup where one used computers to make a reservation, or contact a reservations CM.
