    Hi, I'm wondering if I make a dining reservation for 4 people but only 3 people are able to go to it that day will it still be valid. Will I be charged for the extra person?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Gemma!

    Thank you for sending in your wonderful Walt Disney World Resort dining question. In my experience, if one of your party members is unable to make it to your dining reservation, it will still be valid and you will not be charged. If  no one from your party shows up and you have not canceled the reservation at least 24-hours ahead of your scheduled arrival time, then you will be charged the fee. 

    If you find out ahead of time they will not be joining you, you can call Disney Dining and adjust your reservation. 

    Have a wonderful trip, Gemma. Please visit us again if you have any other questions or concerns. 

    Magical Wishes,
