Starting on October 31, Disney will expand its current dining cancellation policy (which right now is only being used for character meals and signature dining experiences) to include all Walt Disney World table service restaurants.
With the policy, guests will be required to put down a credit card number in order to make Advanced Dining Reservations. Should the guest need to cancel a reservation, the guest must do so before 11:59 pm the day before the reservation; otherwise Disney will charge a $10 per person fee. For pre-paid locations, if guests do not cancel in time, the entire amount will be retained.
Dining cancellations can be made in a variety of ways, including on the Disney Wolrd website, in-person at Guest Relations or the restaurant podium, or by calling 407-WDW-CNCL.
