Disney Dining Cancellation Policy


Disney World Dining has just introduced a new policy for the cancellation of Advanced Dining Reservations. Credit card guarantees will now be required for 19 of the most popular restaurants at Walt Disney World. If you do not cancel with a full day’s notice then you will be charged $10 per person for the cancelled ADR.

You can cancel a reservation online, by calling 407 WDW DINE, at any restaurant podium, at a concierge desk or at guest services in any Disney park.

It is important to realize that it is a full day notice, not 24 hours notice. If for example you have a reservation on 6th December you would have to cancel on 4th December – so you have a full day between your reservation and the cancellation date.

Which are the restaurants included in the new cancellation policy?

1900 Park Fare

Akershus Royal Banquet Hall

Artist’s Point

California Grill

Cape May Café

Chef Mickey’s


The Crystal Palace

Flying Fish Café

The Garden Grill

Hollywood & Vine

Jiko – The Cooking Place

Le Cellier Steakhouse



Tusker House Restaurant

The Hollywood Brown Derby

Yachtsman Steakhouse

Victoria & Albert’s has a cancellation policy of $25 per person.

These dining venues with entertainment will continue to charge the whole price of the dining reservation

Cinderella’s Royal Table

Disney’s Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show

Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue

Mickey’s Backyard BBQ

Of course these are some of the most popular restaurants in the whole of Walt Disney World. I wonder how long it will take to extend this list? Getting an Advance Dining Reservation has become increasingly difficult in recent years, and advance planning is always the better option. But sometimes plans can change so you need to make a last minute change to your restaurant choice. Make sure that if you have booked an ADR that you now note which you have give credit card guarantees for – or it will cost you dearly!
