    I am on the Deluxe DDP. Thus I have all TS meals w/ressies. If I fail to call and cancel a reservation will i still get meals deducted from my bank of meals? I know its polite to cancel if u know u r not going 2 make it but sometimes stuff happens.

    The answer to this depends on which reservations you have. There are a very few dining experiences at WDW that require you to leave a credit card on file to hold the reservation. These include the Hoop Dee Doo Revue, Cinderella's Royal Table, Victoria & Albert, Fantasmic and Candlelight Dinner packages, some holiday meals and a couple of others. If you have a reservation for one of these places, then there are cancellation policies in place. It varies by restaurant, but usually you will be assessed a penalty unless you cancel a credit-card-held reservation at least 48 hours in advance.

    For all other non-credit-card-held dining reservations, there is no specific time frame under which you must cancel. You will not be penalized if you cancel just before the meal, or even if you no-show. Of course, the sooner you cancel, the easier it is for other guests who may want to use your reservation slot.

    Good luck with your planning.
