Does anyone know how long an endowment session lasts? I have some friends who are not members who want to meet me for dinner after a session only I can't remember if it takes 2 hours or more. In the past I really haven't paid that much attention to the time. Any Ideas?

Depends on how many people are in the session, but I usually plan just under two hours (barely under).

I agree with Wing. . . we plan on two hours from walking in to the temple, to walking out. Its usually just under the two hours.

I was just going to ask this question myself, as it's been awhile.  Glad to see someone else had the same question.

MormonMama, this thread is from before the new videos were released, and they are longer than they used to be.

I add in extra time to factor in hanging out in the Celestial Room figuring that if I made the drive, I may as well not rush out.

It also depends on which temple.  The Idaho Falls temple still moves from room to room. This takes longer.  The endowment session itslelf lasts just under two hours.  Factor in time in the celestial room, and changing clothes, figure on at least 2.5 hours.  Since sessions are run only once an hour, figure on as much as another hour (or as little as a immeadately) depending on when you get there. Since I live an hour away, I also have to figure on another two hours of travel. Your time may vary, but figure on two hours for the session itself.

It may last a bit longer if someone going thru for the first time in a crowded room.

Actually, it still took about 2 hours from the time we entered the endowment room until I was walking out of the temple.  We did have a very small group though, so that probably was a factor.
