    When calling to make ADR for character meals (not staying on Disney property so no dining plan) will I be paying in full at time of booking for all in my party? I am making ADRs for about 15 people. Thanks so much


    It really depends on where you are making your reservations.  Dinner shows like the Spirit of Aloha Luau, Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, and Mickey's Backyard BBQ do require payment in full at the time of reservation.  Cinderella's Royal Table requires this as well.

    For some reservations, like California Grill or Akershus Storybook Dining, a credit card number is required, but your card will only be charged a fee if you are a no-show for the meal without canceling in advance.

    Only the Disney Dining cast members can give you accurate information on each specific restaurant, but you can check with them before reserving so you can plan accordingly.  Just call (407) WDW-DINE for inquiries or to make a reservation.

    Have a great vacation!
