    Hello! Was wondering how far in advance of your trip you can make changes (add/delete dining plan or park tickets)? Also, which restaurants require payment in full at time of reservation if not using a dining plan? Thanks so much, you are all wonderful!

    Hi Alyssa!

    Thank you for visiting us at Disney Parks Moms Panel and congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World!  Making changes to your reservation will depend if you are booking a Magic Your Way Package vs. a room only reservation.  With a room only reservation, changes or any cancellations can be made 5 days before your check in date without paying any fees.

    A Magic Your Way Package can have changes or cancellations with out penalties made up until 45 days before your arrival date.  After the 45 days any changes can result in a $50 fee and cancellations between 44 days to 1 day before your arrival date will result in a $200 cancellation fee. If cancellations are made the day before your check-in date, you will loose the entire amount. If you wish to add Disney's Dining Plan to your Magic Your Package, you must do so within 72 hours of your arrival date.

    When making your dining reservations, be aware that there are two types of restaurants that will require a credit card when booking your reservation.  Certain restaurants will require a credit card guarantee, which means that if you fail to show up or cancel your reservation you will typically be charged $10 per a person.  Other more popular restaurants and dinner shows will require payment in full at the time of booking, unless you're on Disney's Dining Plan.  Those restaurants include:
    • Cinderella's Royal Table
    • Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue
    • Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show
    • Mickey's Backyard BBQ
    I hope this helps and please let me know if I you have anymore questions while planning your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!

    Best Wishes!
