This is an official notice that was provided by Cheshire Figment, as it's no longer a rumor I'm going to put it up here on this board. PLEASE BE SURE YOU READ THE QUOTE BELOW CAREFULLY. This policy applies to RESERVATIONS MADE ON OR AFTER OCTOBER 26, 2011 ONLY. If you have already made reservations before this date THEY WILL NOT BE AFFECTED. At this time it is unknown what, if any, exigent circumstances will be permitted as excuses for cancelling a reservation at a restaurant on this list on the same day as the reservation. We do not know if Disney will have specific accepted excuses or if it will be up to the person who answers the phone whether or not to accept the excuse. We also cannot be sure at this time that any exigent circumstances for cancelling the day of will be accepted at all. Per information from a poster who called Disney Dining, apparently if a partial party shows up at the restaurant there will still be a $10 charge for each person who didn't show up. This is the information given via one call to Disney Dining...we all know how consistent they are with their information. It is also not clear at this time whether "a day in advance" means a calendar day or 24 hours.
