    What happens if I’m late to my dinner reservation? How long before the restaurant cancels and charges no show fee?

    Hi there Letty,

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks so much for your question! There are so many delicious dining options at the Disneyland Resort that accept reservations - my family and I love the Blue Bayou Restaurant in particular.

    When making a dining reservation, your credit card will be required as a placeholder. Your card won't be charged before you dine unless you either miss your reservation or do not cancel within the cancellation period. Each restaurant maintains its own cancellation policy, so I recommend checking out the restaurant's policy on the Disneyland website.

    For example, the Blue Bayou Restaurant's policy states currently that you must cancel at least 2 hours prior to your reservation otherwise there will be a $10 per person charge (note that policies are subject to change at any time).

    If you need to make a change to your dining reservation, you can do it in the Disneyland mobile app in the "My Plans" section in the menu (☰) tab. Alternatively, you can make dining reservation changes online in the "My Plans" section under the "My Disneyland" heading.

    I hope that helps as you continue to plan your next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! Thanks again for your question, Letty.

    Have a Magical Day,
