    we are planning on visiting Magic Kingdom on March 26 and would like to make reservations for the Crystal Palace for dinner. What if it rains on this day and we decide not to go to the park?

    Hi, Sandra!

    Starting on October 26, 2011, Disney made some changes to its dining policies. Many of the restaurants now require a credit card guarantee to hold the reservation and are asking for a 24-hour advance cancellation or forfeiture of a deposit.

    According to the official Crystal Palace Web site.

    * When booking, the Guest must provide a credit card to hold the reservation.
    * If the Guest cancels within one day of the reservation or if the dining party is a "no show" for the meal, a cancellation fee of $10 per person will be charged to the credit card used at the time of booking.

    You'll want to keep a close eye on the weather, of course, and decide based on the forecast if you are going to keep that reservation. Otherwise, you will incur a $10 charge for each member of the traveling party whose name appears on the reservation.

    If you do opt to cancel, make sure to call (407) WDW-DINE 24 hours prior to your scheduled seating time in order to cancel.

    Have a great time!

    See you later, celebrator,
