    If only two out of four people arrive for an ADR, are you still charged $10/person for the people that did not show up? Trying to determine how flexible/in-the-moment our group can be.

    Hello Kirsten!

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! There is some flexibility with dining reservations at Walt Disney World Resort. In my experience, if someone in our party wasn't feeling well or was tired, and we showed up with less people in our reservation, we were not charged the $10 per person for the guests that didn't come as long as someone in the party did. 

    That being said, if you're unsure if people really want a dining reservation and want to be in the moment, then I suggest walking up to a restaurant and inquiring about availability. If they are not accepting walk-up reservations, then it's a great time to try a new quick-service location! I have found some of my new favorite Disney restaurants that way like La Cantina de San Angel in Epcot. The Nachos and Empanadas con Queso are delicious!

    If you have any other questions, please come back and see us real soon!
