« back to Dining Plan
I have made some dinner reservations for our trip in Sept. but my husband is more "fly by the seat of his pants" and I am more of a planner. If we cancel our dinner reservations last minute or are a "no-show" do they charge me?

This depends on the restaurant where you have the reservation.
While it is always courteous to call Disney Dining (407-WDW-DINE) to cancel if you know you won't be able to attend a meal, in most cases there is no penalty for missing a reservation.
However, there are a few Disney dining experiences where you have to either pay in advance or leave a credit card deposit. Notably these include Cinderella's Royal Table, the Hoop Dee Doo Revue and the Spirit of Aloha dinner show. If you are a no-show for one of these meals, you will be charged either a penalty fee or the full cost of the meal, depending on the restaurant. This will have been described to you when you made the reservation.
