    So I snagged a res. for Artist Point on New Year’s Day. Our daughter is performing in Disney Springs that day and we may be pushing making on time. I will keep trying to get a later time but, long will they hold your res?

    The official rule is 15 minutes.
    Are you planning on using WDW transportation, MinnieVan or Lyft/Uber?
    Normally I would say you would probably be fine, but because it's a VERY busy holiday, I wouldn't risk it,
    Imho.

    Was planning on using WDW transportation. How does the Minnie van work? They are new since our last visit.

    I think it depends on the restaurant and the popularity. We showed up 40 minutes late to Homecomin' in October and we just had to wait a little bit for a table.

    A place like AP, especially on one of the busiest days of the year, will probably not wait longer that 15 minutes, if I had to guess.

    I agree with the PP who suggested getting your own transportation.

    There is NO” Offical Rule”. As @TheRustyScupper states - You are expected to make your ADR like any other Appointment.
