    If we make a dinner reservation what happens if we dont make it in time? Is there any penalty or fees. Can we change a reservation if we need to? Thanks

    Hi, Lorie!  For most restaurants, you are not charged a penalty or fees if you don't make your reservation.  There are a very few restaurants (like the California Grill and Cinderella's Royal Table) that do require a credit card guarantee.  For most of the other restaurants, if you are not able to make your reservation, your table will just be offered to another waiting guest.

    If you are still heading to the restaurant, but can't make it in time, they will do their best to accommodate you at the next available table, but for some restaurants, that can be quite a long wait, especially if you are very late.  If it's just a matter of a few minutes, you should be fine.

    If you need to change a reservation, you can call 407-WDW-DINE to make the change.  There are no guarantees, especially on short notice, that they can accommodate you at a different time, but it's always worth trying.  There could be another family in a similar situation looking to change a reservation!

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation!
