    We have Deluxe Dining Plan and have made lots of ADRs- what happens if we don't show up for one? Are meals deducted from our dining plan anyway? Ex. Crystal Palace, Plaza, Chef Mickey, Mama Melrose (did not have to give credit card info when booked) Thx!

    Hi Kelli!

    For the restaurants which do not have a cancellation policy or require a credit card deposit, there isn't a penalty for not showing up a reservation. Disney does understand that even the best plans sometimes go awry.

    However, I really do strongly suggest that as soon as you know you won't be making one your reservations that you give Disney Dining a quick phone call at 407-WDW-DINE or stop by guest services to let them know you won't be attending your meal. Think of your cancellation as spreading a little pixie dust on another vacationer's trip! If you've cancelled your reservation, some lucky person may be able to dine in your spot that night!. If you don't show up, however, Disney will hold the reservation for a period of time and may even turn away someone who walks up looking for a dining spot!

    Hope this helps! Enjoy your trip!!
