Wishes at 8/ADR for CRT at 8:15

We were able to get a last minute opening at CRT for 8:15 on a night when Wishes is at 8 (this coming Sunday night). How should we make sure that we can get through the crowds to the restaurant? Is there anything that we can do other than find a spot very early and hold on to it? If so, suggestions as to where and when to set up would be much appreciated.

I had an issue where we were in line and I called Disney to tell them and they said, “don’t worry about it. There’s a 30 minute buffer.” We were late for every single dining reservation. Moral of the story is, you’ll be good. Have a blast
