(Mama Melrose's Italiano in Hollywood Studios)
Many of the Table Service restaurants at Walt Disney World already have the 24 hour cancellation policy in place.
If you do NOT cancel your reservation, 1 day in advance, you will pay a $10 per person penalty, for each reservation, that is not cancelled.
However, some of the Table Service Meals, such as locations like Mama Melrose's, or Kona Cafe, do NOT currently have a cancellation policy in place.
Well, that's all about to change.
October 31,2013 - Walt Disney World will now have a 24 hour cancellation policy for ALL Table Service and Signature Dining locations.
(the policy for Signature dining experience remains the same: full payment is due in full at the time of the reservation if you are NOT on the dining plan, and even if you ARE on the dining plan, a no-show will result in the FULL price of the dining experience to be applied to the credit card you have on file)
Beginning on October 31, with this new change, all Table Service meals will have atleast a $10 per person cancellation fee for all no-show reservations.
This is much in hopes to eliminate lots and lots of guests making multiple reservations each day, and failing to cancel them.
If you wish to avoid this penalty, you may call 1.407.WDW.CNCL to cancel your dining reservation at any time.
Or of course, if you have booked your Walt Disney World vacation with me..well, then I am happy to handle that for you :)
