BREAKING NEWS: Disney Cancels Dining Reservation Due To Glitch
*** Dining Reservation Glitch UPDATE ****
We were just informed that any “new” dining reservations AND/OR “modified” dining reservations made on Tuesday, 11/3 between 2am and 12pm (EST) will be cancelled starting tomorrow between 8am and 12pm (EST). Also, Disney is giving a $25 gift card for EACH cancelled reservation. So if you have 4 dining reservations affected, Disney will offer $100 in Disney gift cards.
Unfortunately we have some disappointing news to deliver today. Many guests planning their upcoming Walt Disney World vacations woke up to an exciting sight this past Tuesday (11/3) with a fresh wave of dining reservation opportunities that had become available. We have now learned from Disney that this was due to a systems glitch.
Due to the existing limited capacity still in place at all of the Walt Disney World dining locations, reservations were made and exceeded what Disney can accommodate. The window of time for the glitch was between ~ 2am EST and 12pm EST. For guests that made reservations during this time, their reservations are going to be cancelled.
Guests that made dining reservations for today and tomorrow at Wald Disney World are going to get a phone call to confirm the cancellation. Guests with reservations starting on Saturday and through the remainder of the 60 bookable days will receive an email alerting them that their reservation is cancelled. The reservation #s should be included in the email. Guests should know by end of the day tomorrow whether their reservation was cancelled or not and allow them to make alternate reservations.
The only silver lining to this story is that Disney is giving $25 gift cards to those affected as an apology. We are waiting for an answer of whether it’s $25 per cancelled reservation or just $25 regardless of how many reservations a party has been impacted by.
Please stay tuned to MickeyBlog as we will update everyone with more details as we receive them. Were you affected by the Dining Reservation Glitch? Share your story in the comments below!
