Let's try to put some numbers to this debate/discussion. Let's see the percentages for and against. And whether you're for or against, if you wish, you can lay out the framework of what you feel is the ideal system for ADRs from start to finish. To me, the ideal system would look something like this: ADR window is 45 days for on-site guests, 30 days for off-site guests Each ADR requires a $10 "deposit" that goes toward the balance of your meal. If you're on the DP, then it goes toward the tip or anything else not covered by the plan. (BTW, I would give you a "cart" so that you only would have to enter CC one time.) The deposit can be transferred to another ADR if you switch to another restaurant and/or time for the same meal. If you just flat out cancel the ADR, up to12 hours prior to your ADR time, you lose the $10 fee. If you cancel less than 12 hours or no-show, you are charged an additional fee of $10 PP.
