    I have two ADRs for a party of 1 at BOG for lunch. One is at 12:15 and one is at 12:35. I know it is Quick Service and open seating so we can find a spot to sit together. However, will we be able to enter into the castle together or will we have to wait the 20 minutes?

    I am going to continue to look for an ADR for 2, but want to be prepared in case I can't find one.

    They may let you in together, but they may not. A 20 minute gap is more significant than, say, a 5 minute gap.

    Having two 1 person reservations is fine but you'll want to try to get them closer today. a 5-10 minute gap between is much more reasonable for them to let you in together than a 20 minute gap.
    In 20 minutes you can legit have your food and be half done eating if you preordered.
    Both go up in time for the first ADR time and ask if the later one can check in as well.
    I've done it multiple times but with a 5-10 minute gap and have always been able to enter together.

    If you can’t find closer times try this. Person one does not preorder. That would make that person wait in line to place order (and wastes time to wait for person 2). Person 2 does preorder. So hopefully by the time person 2 is in, person 1 has ordered and found a seat.

    It can easily take more than 20 munutes to stand in that line on the bridge in the sun to order and confirm/pay. I certainly would not want to be person one in your solution.

    I recommend you both checking in at 12:25. That won't be a problem in terms of being too late (they won't care- believe me), or too early. I recommend not preordering at all.
