My Time Dining works just like a restaurant. You show up during the hours the dining room is open, stand in line, and get a table. You might have a wait, etc.
For RCI specific questions, you would be best posting this on the RCI board.
With RCI you can also make daily or advanced reservations with MTD. Standing in line is not your only option. You can also request the same table location and wait staff if desired and they will try to accommodate you. Gratuities are also prepaid at the time of this selection.
Grandeur (3 times - Maiden voyage +2)
Adventure B2B - 6/15 & 7/15
