    All Table Service Restaurants subject to Cancellation charges

    Starting October 31st, 2013 all Table Service Restaurant will be subject to cancellation charges where in the past only Signature restaurants were. Guests will be required to cancel with 24 hours or a charge of $10 per guest on the reservation will be automatically charged.

    Prepaid dinner shows the ENTIRE amount will be automatically be charged for failing to cancel.

    This also applies to Non-Disney owned restaurants on property.






    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    It's about time Disney did something, but it will not stop the abuse of the system by those with deep pockets.

    Once again Disney didn't anticipate Guests selfish behaviors. This is put in place many for the parties that book multiple venues and times for the same meal.

    How can you not anticipate the entitlement mentality of people? I remember on our only trip so far to MNSSHP we got our spots for the Boo To you Parade an hour prior to start. Once it started some lady came up behind us and demanded that we sit down so her kids could see.

    And the cancellation policy to go into effect on October 31st has been put on hold with no new launch date.

    The cancellation policy for Signature restaurants still remains.

    Hmmm, she wouldn't have fared well with me.

    It is worse and more infuriating when a CM makes room for a guest right in front of the spot you have been waiting in....

    This practice was suspended and did not go into effect on October 31st. But it is on again. Starting this week on November 19th, the charges as outlined in the original post above are a WDW go.

    Hmm. I was wondering why when I made an ADR for the Plaza for 12/23 on Friday that I wasn't asked for a CC!

    Yep, nobody seemed to know what held this up a month, a pretty simple procedure.

    fyi: The Plaza Restaurant at Magic Kingdom will be closed for refurbishment February 17th 2014- March 15th 2014

    Good to see you, hope you are settled in your new home.
