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
Cape May Café
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
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!
