    I made a dinner reservation for a party of 9. If we show up with a party of 6, but our reservation is for 9, will we be charged $10 per person for the 3 people who were expected and didn't show?

    Hello Mary!

    I love eating at the fantastic restaurants in Walt Disney World! I like trying new restaurants and visiting my favorites during my Walt Disney World vacations. 

    Wow, it is awesome that you secured an Advanced Dining Reservation for your party of nine people! Based on my experience with Advanced Dining Reservations, as long as a Guest shows up on time with one or two people for an Advanced Dining Reservation, then there is no extra fee for those unable to make it. Make sure at check-in that you let the Cast Member know the size of your dining party if it has changed from the original Advanced Dining Reservation size. A per-person fee is charged when no Guests show up for an Advanced Dining reservation or if the Advanced Dining Reservation is not canceled before 24 hours of the Advanced Dining Reservation time and no one shows up at the restaurant. 

    I hope that all of your meals are magical on your next Walt Disney World vacation!
