Thread: 3 show vs reservations for ?

    3 show vs reservations for ?

    I’ve made our dining reservations for July, for a party of 4, but there’s a chance only 3 of us will be able to make it. Is this an issue with Disney? Would we have to pay $10 no show fee for one person if they cant make it?

    No issue at all. As long as someone shows up for the reservation, you won’t get charged. We’ve shown up with 3 people for an ADR for 5 people. It was no problem.

    yup agreed and going down is easier than up if your reservation number is incorrect. Just explain when you check in for the meal and they will get you sorted out.

    Another question, can reservations be “modified” for a lesser number of people?
    Or would it be “canceled” and then have to rebook again based on availability?

    No charge for showing up with one less. As a solo, I routinely make reservations for two, but show up as one.

    It can be modified... but I have had instances where I could not get the time I wanted still when modifying the number in party. You can always try and cancel out of the modification if it is not to your liking with no adverse effects.

    I have had "modify" work sometimes for fewer people and sometimes not.

    I was surprised when we showed up for BoG with fewer people they actually called back to the restaurant to confirm it was ok and there was a table available even though it was 4 people to 3 people so hypothetically the same size table. I've never had that happen before when showing up with fewer people. More people, yes, it usually takes longer and they have to check. It was fine though, we were seated in a reasonable amount of time. I wonder if they just have a policy of checking with a manager in every single situation to take the decision process away from the check in staff?
