Disney World requires a Credit Card Guarantee For ADRs. This guarantee just ensures Disney that you will actually show up to your reservation. The no show fee is $10 per person at most restaurants. You can avoid being charged the fee by canceling your reservation at least 24 hours in advance.
Your credit card does not have a hold placed on it at the time of reservation. The credit card number is just filed for the event that you don’t show up to your restaurant.
This fee is not charged if one or two members of your party do not make it to the ADR. As long as the majority show up, you don’t have to worry about the no show fee.
