Changes to ADR Polices at WDW

It was just a matter of time.  WDW announced recently that starting October 26, certain restaurants will now require a credit card to secure a reservation.  For cancellations made less than 24 hours in advance and for no shows, the card will be charged $10 per person.  Restaurants that require pre-payment will have a cancelation penalty of the full amount.

Locations affected are as follows -   

Pre-Paid Locations:
• Cinderella's Royal Table
• Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show
• Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue
• Mickey's Backyard BBQ

Additionally, if you need to make a cancellation, there's a new dedicated line: 407-WDW-CNCL.  You can also go online to the restaurant bookings page (disneyworld.com/dining).  If you are already on property, you can continue to book or cancel at any table service restaurant podium, resort front desk or Guest Relations.  Those staying at the concierge level can also access services there as well.
