Guests can now cancel their Walt Disney World dining reservations up to two hours before the reservation time in the My Disney Experience app.
Previously, guests could not make same-day cancellations in the app. Instead, they had to call Disney, pay a no-show fee (usually $10 per person), or change the reservation to another day and then cancel it.
The update does not apply to dining experiences that guests must pre-pay for.
The Walt Disney World dining policy still indicates guests must cancel at least one day before the reservation, but this may change soon:
You must cancel at least one day prior to your reservation to avoid a per person cancellation fee. If you fail to cancel timely and are a no show, the credit card provided at the time of reservation will be charged $10.00 per person.
