    If I make a dinning reservation and some one in our party doesn't show out will I be charged for this missing person?

    Hey Abigail-

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Dining at Walt Disney World Resort Disney is adventure unto itself. With delicacies from all over the world, to meeting Princesses, honey-loving bears and even the Boss, Mickey Mouse, reservations for Disney Table Service Dining are highly coveted.

    According to the Walt Disney World Resort website, “Some restaurants may charge a fee for cancellations or no shows. Each restaurant at Walt Disney World Resort maintains its own cancellation policy, so be sure to check the policy when you are making your reservation."

    Disney Dad Tip: I would recommend you make the reservation for the number of people you expect to attend the meal. It is much harder to add people later and easy to subtract a Guest from a reservation. If you do not cancel or alter the reservation by 11:59 p.m. the day before your reservation, you may be charged a cancellation per Guest for not attending. Even if you show up on time but cannot stay for your reservation you may be charged the fee. Bottom line: Know before you go.

    Abigail, enjoy making and eating many Magical Memories!
