    As I understand it their system won't allow this anymore. Period. I suppose you could book under different names with different cards, but aside from that...

    That would probably work... The only issue with the ADR's I have is this... I had an ADR at Via Napoli last year... We were at MGM and were going to take the water taxi across at noon... There was a lightning storm that shut down the taxis and by the time we realized we wouldn't get there and would need the bus it was 1:00 and we had 1:30 reservations... Though it could have been avoided if I would have taken the weather I to account (though it is tough in Florida in August) I was able to cancel my ADR at guest services... I'm sure they will be understanding in extenuating circumstances... But this was an odd isolated incident... I think they are trying to fix the problems of the "blow-offs"... Coming home to $50 in charges for blowing off a few reservations will make people think twice the next trip...

    I think the restrictions as implemented may only apply to ADRs booked with a reservation number...I'm not sure it's linked by name or card. Unless they've added restrictions since the system update that allowed online booking.

    Re: new enforcement of fastpass

    I haven't used it since the update. Well, once at the resort and guest services took care of it for us since I wasn't paying for internet service just for that.

    But, from what I've heard the new system does have some kind of fail safe involved that can spot multiple ADRs. I don't know if it only applies to those with a reservation number or not...

    I guess they couldn't do it for each party, unless you are a party of six and are making two different 3-person reservations or something like that. Not every party is going to want to eat every meal together, so it's feasible that a group could need more than one reservation for a particular time. But not two four-person reservations for a party of four.

    Re: new enforcement of fastpass

    Oh yeah, I'm sure it's no easy task. Unless you're a party of two with three different ADRs for lunch on the same day. That kind of thing...

    Not sure, really. But, veering off topic is what makes the intertubes such a fun place to hang out.

    Re: new enforcement of fastpass

    I think the ADR discussion came about because we were talking about the Fastpass reservation system, and there was some analogy somewhere - and suddenly we were talking about double booking ADRs

    Re: new enforcement of fastpass

    Yeah I take blame for it since I related ADR's to Fastpasses and returning ontime for both. Kind of like my term paper in Political Science arguing the similarities between NAFTA & The European Union which wasn't nearly as enjoyable a read as Disney topics are.

    It was a streamline transition. First came the ADR's changes and now the FP. Ultimately discussing the XPass which some in theory believe there is the possibility of merging many forms including these two into a pre-arrival reservation system for your entire vacation. Refilling your souvenir cup included.

    Hope that caught you up.

    Re: new enforcement of fastpass

    It just seems like a similar conversation to all of us... Has the same issue because the same people might be guilty of both showing up hours late for fastpass and blowing off ADR's... Just a thought...

    For the ressies, there's a reason Disney is now charging you $10 if you are a no-show for your reservation. (for the nice restaurants at least).

    And the fastpasses, I have always tried my best to be there during the alotted times. There have been times that I have been like 45 minutes late due to a line I was in that was longer than was posted. Overall, I think the enforcement will work because even with fastpass, at certain times during the day, the fastpass line is ridiculous because they're cashing them in from hours before. It will help truly determine the wait times, I feel.

    It's $100 a head if you no call/no show at the Chef's table at Citrico's.

    Yeh that'd really make you rethink the whole blowing off idea... Might as well eat there... It's $100 no matter what...
