Is there anything better than Free Dining and Fastpasses?

You do currently. We always get the dining plan, but you still have to put a credit card hold on some reservations like CRT, Akershus and Hoopty-Do. They will charge your card if you don't show up for these reservations, dining plan or not.

I very much preferred having the calendar and ADRs 180 days out, but I will be surprised if this rumor is true.

They'd need to post 3-4 months on the calendar, (basically) all at once
near the late October/early November newly announced ADR date.

They can't seem to get the one month posted on time to hit the 90 day mark NOW.

Stay tuned.
So true, lol! These rumors are overwhelming. Now there is this on top of the "No appetizer rumor" with the Deluxe DDP. Disneyworld.com says that the apps are still on there, but others say it's not (TA websites)

I wish they'd do that, it would free up a lot of the double adrs people book & the no shows. Maybe some of us would be able to get our adrs we want.
It used to be they didn't charge unless you no-showed/cancelled in under 48 hours. But, the last few of years, they have charged the full price on any of the dinner shows and Cinderella's Royal Table when you book, it is refundable, but... Couldn't speak for Akershus, as we've never been, but I'm assuming it isn't just one meal they don't charge for. If you book online, by the time it's confirmed, they have the charge on your credit card.

If you haven't added it yet, yes. Not sure if you book your ADRs with the dining plan and then decide to go to a room-only reservation how that would happen. Theoretically, it shouldn't cancel your ADR, but then you no longer have payment. We don't get the dining plan because it doesn't fit our style well, so I don't know a lot about it.

No, they don't charge for akershus I have a resi for Oct & no charge. I've also never been charged for CRT ahead, because it was not a set amount, so that's new. As for the dinner shows, those I have been charged at the time of booking.

When was the last time you were at CRT? It's been a set amount for quite some time, at least two years.

From All Ears: Cinderella's Royal Table Dinner is a fixed-price meal hosted by the Fairy Godmother, who will lead the observance of special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries.

Adults $57.19
Children 3-9 $34.78
Price includes tax and gratuity


Oh well. If you haven't been charged in advance, that's good for you, I guess. Not that it really matters.

I don't know anything about Ashkerus. I just assumed that all meals they took a cc for was instant charge now. If it's not, then I guess it's fine *IF* this rumor is true that they start taking them for all meals. I just feel bad for those that don't have cc.

It was quite a few years ago... maybe in '01??? I see they've changed things.

I'm not a CRT fan at all. I think it not worth it unless your travel party includes children, which mine does not.

Ok, you lost me somewhere. I have the dining plan. So outside of the "special" restaurants, why would I need a credit card to ADR say for Rose & Crown, etc, i.e. regular restaurants?

I was asked for a cc number when I booked the akershus princess breakfast and was told if I no-showed, I'd be charged like $10 per person or something.

Currently you don't. The speculation is, that if Disney starts requiring CC holds at all table service restaurants that it will cut down on double bookings and no-shows.

Oh I SO hope they need a cc to reserve EVERY ADR. You'll see how quickly ADR slots open up. I'm all for it and will willingly hand over my cc# every time they ask.

Not to be dumb but what financial gain would it serve Disney to do this? I can't see where it would be helpful to them..

currently dinner shows (which includes CRT) require payment in full at time of booking unless on the DDP, in which the card is required to secure the booking.

some locations such as akershus, california grill, V&A and experiences such as BBB require a credit card to secure the booking and will charge a per person penalty in case of no-shows.
