Credit Cards Holds to be Required for Select Disney Dining Locations

We are working on confirming this rumor we have heard, but wanted to get the information to you as soon as possible.

Effective October 26, 2011, additional Walt Disney World restaurants will be requiring a credit card to hold reservations.  The reservations will need to be cancelled no later than 24 hours prior or a charge of $10 per person will be applied to the credit card on hold.  This change is being implemented to cut down on the number of reservation no-shows that occur at the most popular Disney dining locations.  From what we’ve heard, this will reduce the cancellation penalty window to 24 hours instead of the 48 hours for some locations, but again, this has not been confirmed by Disney yet.  Here is the list of dining locations we are anticipating will have this new requirement:

  • 1900 Park Fare
  • Akershus
  • Artist Point
  • California Grill
  • Cape May Cafe
  • Chef Mickey’s
  • Citricos
  • Crystal Palace
  • Flying Fish
  • Garden Grill
  • Hollywood & Vine
  • Hollywood Brown Derby
  • Jiko
  • Le Cellier
  • Narcoossee’s
  • ‘Ohana
  • Tusker House
  • Victoria & Albert ($25 per person cancellation penalty)
  • Yachtman Steakhouse

A special cancellation line will be set up to call your cancellations in if necessary.  That number is 407-WDW-CNCL.

What do you think of this new policy, if it comes to fruition?
