Reservations at a Disney restaurant? Some may charge if you don’t show up

Walt Disney World is adding a new penalty for guests who don’t show up for their reservations at some of its popular restaurants, in a move that could create some more openings in the resort’s chronically full eateries.
Beginning Oct. 26, customers will have to provide a credit-card number to make reservations in Disney World’s “signature” restaurants. Guests who miss their reservations will be charged $10 a person unless they cancel at least 24 hours in advance. That means a party of five would be charged $50 if they are a no-show.
According to the site WDWMagic.com, the cancellation charge will apply to nearly 20 restaurants in Disney World’s various theme parks and hotels, from Le Cellier Steakhouse in Epcot to Jiko at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.
