Major News! Disney to expand cancellation fees to ALL table service restaurants at Walt Disney World

Major News!  Disney to expand cancellation fees to ALL table service restaurants at Walt Disney World

In October of 2011 Disney introduced a change to signature restaurants by charging a $10 charge per guest for no shows in these highly popular restaurants.

Effective October 31, 2013 this policy will be in effect at ALL table service restaurants.  Guests will be required to provide a credit card for all table service reservations. A charge of $10 per guests will then be automatically applied if a cancellation is not provided at least one day in advance.

In the case of pre-paid restaurants and venues such as dinner shows, the entire amount will be retained in the event of failing to cancel.  The new policy applies to non-Disney operated restaurants as well.

Cancellations can be made on the Disney Dining website, at guest relations, a restaurant podium, or via a special phone number at 407-WDW-CNCL. To avoid the penalty, the cancellation must be made up to 11:59pm on the day before the reservation.

Disney has been trying to reduce the number of cases where guests book multiple restaurants, then simply do not appear at several of their reservations.

What do you think of this new policy?
