    Plan on visiting the wk after Thanksgiving would you suggest ADR? I know this is supposed to be a low attendance wk. I have heard now they charge you if you miss your reservation is that true for all locations? Thank you

    Hi Jennifer!
        The week after Thanksgiving is a great time to go to Walt Disney World!  From my experience, I would recommend that you always make Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR) even at a typically less crowded time of year.  An Advanced Dining Reservation ensures that you will be able to eat at the restaurants that you want at the times that you want.  Some of the incredible restaurants at Walt Disney World are very popular and fill up with bookings quickly.  

        The only restaurants that will charge you for missing an Advanced Dining Reservation are the ones that you have to give your credit card number to secure your Advanced Dining Reservation.  Restaurants such as Cinderella's Royal Table fit into this category.  Most of the restaurants do not charge you for missing an Advance Dining Reservation, but if you know that you cannot make a reservation, it is best to call (1-407-WDW-DINE or 1-407-939-3463) and cancel your reservation so it will become available for another Guest to enjoy.

    My wish for you is that you have some magical dining experiences at Walt Disney World on your next trip!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
