    Can anyone tell me how much my card will be charged if we miss a reservation? Thanks

    Hi Deana,

    Thanks for dropping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I'm happy to help you navigate the advanced dining reservation system. A few years ago, Walt Disney World began requiring a credit card guarantee on dining reservations to better manage seats and cut down on no-shows who kept other guests from getting a table at popular restaurants.

    You can cancel an advanced dining reservation up to 24 hours in advance without penalty. If you don't keep your reservation, your card will be charged a $10 per person no-show fee.

    If you find you are within the 24-hour window and circumstances will keep you from getting to your reservation, please call Disney Dining at 407.939.1947 to see if your reservation can be rescheduled to avoid the penalty.

    I hope that clarifies the policy for you, Deana. Please check back with us if you need more information or you'd like recommendations on where to make those advanced dining reservations. We love talking Disney dining.
