    We are going to Disney end of January and have the Disney Dining package. I have spent hours anticipating where we might want to eat on a given day. I actually booked two restaurants on 1 day!?!? When do I have to cancel the other restaurant? On-line book.

    Hi Kim!

    I know how time consuming the planning can be--but for me it is also one of my FAVORITE parts!  Out of courtesy for other guests, I suggest canceling the other reservation as soon as possible as it opens availability for another family.  At the very latest I've called and canceled 24 hours before my reservation, but in all honesty I try to go through and lock in all our reservations about a week from our arrival date. 

    For restaurants like Cinderella's Royal Table that require a deposit before booking there is a specific cancellation policy:  There is a one-day cancellation policy and a full price charge if you cancel within one (1) day of the reservation or are a "no show" for the reservation.

    Thank you for your question and have a MAGICAL vacation!
