Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and greens from 50s Primetime Cafe.
We've been hearing the rumors for weeks now and last night it was confirmed by a manager at 50s Primetime Cafe in Hollywood Studios: Starting in the new year, a credit card guarantee will be required for all Disney table-service restaurants. Guests will need to cancel 24-hours prior to their reservation or face a $10 per person no-show fee.
I've noticed that since the credit card guarantee was implemented for character dining and signature restaurants back in October, it's been a lot easier to make reservations for clients, so this is a welcome change if it's true. According to the manager Bob spoke to last night, 40% of WDW reservations are no-shows. Since the new system has been in place, those restaurants which require a credit card guarantee are down to 7% no-shows.
We'll keep you posted if/when the new change occurs.
