Restaurant reservations in Disney

Since Disney implemented a Dining Plan that allows visitors to make their trips more all-inclusive, their restaurant reservation system has been overloaded.
Recent changes to the system now allow for reservations to be made 90 days prior to your arrival date rather than 180 days. Either way, if you want some of the more popular restaurant during your stay, you’ll be on the phone with Disney at 7:01 a.m. the morning you can begin making those reservations.
The problem is that there are so many great restaurants in Disney that it’s hard to choose which ones to go to. Over the years, Disney has had a problem with people making Advance Dining Reservations (ADR’s) and not showing up.
Rumor has it that Disney will soon require a credit card to hold the reservation and there is a cancellation policy so you may get charged if you don’t cancel within the time frame given.
If they do implement this, I would agree 100 percent.
Restaurants like LeCellier in Epcot are very difficult to get a reservation for. Only once did we get a reservation and after eating there, I can see why it’s so popular.
This new system would be more efficient and make people more accountable to their reservation. When someone pulls a no-show for their dinner reservation, Disney loses money and someone else who wanted to dine there loses the opportunity.
