    I want make a reservation at the California Grill but am not sure how many of us will want to go. If I make reservations for 8 and only 7 attend, will I be charged $10 for the one no show. Our family will be there in late November.

    Hello Diane!

    First of all, your family is going to LOVE California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort.  The food is incredible, and the view is spectacular!

    My recommendation is to go ahead and make reservations for eight people, or for the maximum number of people who could eat with you at California Grill.  When you know exactly how many people will be joining you, just call Disney Dining at 407-WDW-DINE and modify your reservation for the correct number.  You can even call the day before (24 hour notice) to modify your reservation without being charged the $10.00 no-show fee.  I also verified this information with a very helpful Cast Member, so you should be good to go!

    If you have other questions, please let me know!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
