    What is credit card guarantee on dining reservations

    Howdy, Michael!

    Welcome to planDisney! We are DELIGHTED to answer your question regarding your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation! We know you are going to have a MAGICAL time!

    Walt Disney World requires a credit card to make a Disney Dining reservation and uses the credit card as a place holder. The great thing is that your credit card will not be charged unless you do not show up for your reservation or you do not cancel your reservation after 11:59 p.m. (EST) on the day before your arrival. If you do not cancel, you will be charged ten dollars per person on your reservation.  If you were required to pre-pay for your Disney Dining reservation, your payment will not be refunded. 

    I have made MANY Disney Dining reservations over the years, and I have never had any issue in canceling a dining reservation. You can cancel by logging into your My Disney Experience account, or you can call 407-WDW-DINE to cancel your reservation with a Cast Member.

    If you have other questions, please do not hesitate to ask! We are here to help in any way!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
