October 14, 2011, 1:38 am
LaughingPlace.com has reported a change to the Advance Dining Reservation (ADR) policy at Walt Disney World. Reservations that are made on or after Oct. 26 at 19 of the most popular restaurants are subject to a $10 per person charge if they are not used or canceled in time.
A Disney Dining receptionist explained that a full day’s notice must be given to avoid the cancellation fee. She said that, for example, a reservation made for Oct. 30 must be canceled on Oct. 28 to avoid the fee. Guests will be required to provide a credit card with reservations made on or after Oct. 26.
The restaurants subject to the new policy include:
**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 (cancellation policy is $25 per person)
LaughingPlace.com also reports that pre-paid meals with entertainment will continue to charge the full amount if the reservation is not canceled at least a day in advance. Those locations are:
**Cinderella’s Royal Table
**Disney’s Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show
**Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue
**Mickey’s Backyard BBQ
Finally, if you do need to cancel an ADR, you can do so at any table-service restaurant podium; any resort front desk or concierge; guest relations at any theme park; online at DisneyWorld.com/Dining or by calling 407-WDW-DINE.
