    if we have a dining reservation for 6 people and only 4 people go to dinner will we charged for the 2 that didn't go?

    Hi Debbie,

    How exciting that you'll soon be at "The Most Magical Place on Earth" again soaking up lots of magic and fun! Thanks for stopping by and letting us here at the the Disney Parks Moms Panel share in your joy!

    I'm happy to let you know that as long as part of your party is there for your dining reservation, you won't be charged any late cancellation/no-show fees. I would encourage you, however, to edit your reservation online, through the My Disney Experience mobile app, or by calling Disney Dining at (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463 to change the number of Mouseketeers on your reservation as soon as you know for sure that everyone won't be able to join you. You never know...by changing your reservation, you could be spreading some pixie dust and allowing a small party to find a reservation when they thought there wasn't any availability. In general, it's easier to remove some Guests from a dining reservation than add them at a later date, so if in doubt, I'd always suggest making your dining reservations for the maximum number of folks who could be joining you.

    Please let us know if we can help with anything else as you're planning your trip, Debbie, and have a truly magical...and delicious vacation!
