    We have the Sorcerers AP with a Resort Reservation (DVC AKL) if I make a park reservation and we either do not make it to the park before 2pm or do not make it at all is there a no-show penalty?

    Dumela, Richard!

    Isn't Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village just the most magical place to stay? I love being able to explore and watch the incredible wildlife roaming around. Now, before I get carried away and begin talking all about the delicious dining options, let's discuss your fantastic question!

    Richard, when it comes to theme park reservations, if you are unable to make it, you can modify or cancel the reservation even on the day of your visit with no penalty. Although Walt Disney World Resort isn't going to enforce penalties, I like to make sure I cancel my park pass reservation when I can't make it to the park in case someone else is interested in snagging it. And because you're part of the Annual Passholder family, you can visit the theme parks after 2 PM without a theme park reservation, except on Saturdays and Sundays at Magic Kingdom Park!

    I hope you're excited about your vacation! And I hope you've made a dining reservation for Boma - Flavors of Africa! This restaurant features all-you-care-to-enjoy buffets at breakfast and dinner, and I'm still dreaming about the dinner I had there recently. You'll find it to offer incredible dishes with flavors from various African countries, and everything tastes divine. Still, if you have any picky eaters as I do in your party, it also provides many familiar options! Whenever my family dines here, we all leave feeling extremely satisfied and happy! 

    Now, if you'll excuse me as I wipe my drool and wish you an enchanting visit! Asante Sana, Richard!
