ORLANDO (CBSMiami) – Planning a trip to Walt Disney World soon? Don’t make a restaurant reservation unless you plan on keeping it.

According to the WDWMagic.com blog, some of Disney’s most popular restaurants will charge a fee to diners who make reservations and fail to show up.

Beginning October 26, customers making dinner reservations at many of the Disney resort’s better restaurants will be asked for a credit card number. If they don’t cancel at least 24 hours in advance, the card will be charged $10 per person.

The new policy applies to 19 signature restaurants at the resort, including the upscale Victoria & Albert’s, where the tab for no-shows will be $25 per person.

Currently, four Disney World dining venues, Cinderella’s Royal Table, Disney’s Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show, Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, and Mickey’s Backyard BBQ, which require pre-paid tickets, don’t offer refunds for cancellations made less than a day in advance. WDWMagic.com says the penalty is aimed at ensuring greater availability at its most popular eateries.
