    Hi if I make a character reservation will my card be charged? Or am I allowed to split checks and make my own payment at the restaurant?

    Howdy, Leslie-Jade! Thanks for stopping by planDisney!

    Oh boy! You're just days away from your trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth! Pretty soon, you'll feel the wind in your hair as you take on the thrilling adventures on coasters like Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Expedition Everest and Slinky Dog Dash! I like to start my trip off with a big moment.. Hmm.. maybe something like setting off on an intergalactic chase on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind?! In my humble opinion, this is the absolute best coaster at the Walt Disney World Resort now. It is all a matter of preference, but I highly recommend trying it out to see where it ranks on your list! You can experience this brand new attraction via an Individual Lightning Lane purchase or through the virtual queue system available on the My Disney Experience Mobile App.

    Character Dining is a must-do on any trip to Walt Disney World! I love that you can meet multiple characters in one sitting, allowing you to spend time in the parks exploring more rides, treats and shops! While you are required to have a card on file to hold your dining reservation, that card will not automatically be charged for the meal. You can decide during your meal how you'd like to handle the bill.

    Leslie-Jade, your card on file will automatically be charged if you're a no-show to your reservation. It is a per Guest fee based on your party size, so be sure to keep tabs on the time and cancel your reservation in advance if your plans change.

    I truly hope this is your most magical vacation yet! Mickey and his pals can't wait to see you!

    See you real soon,
