    If I make a reservation and not everybody shows up. Will I be charged for the people who do not show up?

    Hi Christine! 

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for dropping by with your great question!  

    I would be happy to answer this question as I just encountered a similar situation over the weekend when dining at Chefs de France in EPCOT! I made a dinner reservation for 12, but 4 people were unable to make it. Here is how to handle a similar situation at the Disneyland Resort

    When checking in for your Dining Reservation using the Disneyland Mobile App, you can usually increase or decrease your party size by 1 person. So, you may need to check with the Cast Member at the host stand if you want to reduce your party size by more than 1 person. But, as long as you let a Cast Member know, you should not be charged a no-show fee. 

    If you need to cancel the dining reservation altogether, you may do so without penalty up to 2 hours before your Dining Reservation start time. 

    Bon Appetit!
