I keep finding varying opinions on this question....so I thought I would try here, too! We booked an advance dining reservation at Skipper Canteen for 6:30 p.m. on a day when the park closes at 6 p.m. I know the MVMCP starts at 7 p.m., but will our dining reservation work if we DON'T have tickets to MVMCP? Some people say yes, others say no. I even called the Disney dining phone number and the representative from Disney hedged quite a bit and didn't really answer.
My thought was to head to the restaurant right at 6 p.m. instead of leaving and hang out there until our table is ready. Will they let us do that? Again, I keep hearing differing opinions. Rob seems to know so much, so I hope he can help!
