A Disneyland spokesman has confirmed that the resort's restaurants will not follow Walt Disney World's lead and introduce a charge for restaurant "no-shows".

The Orange County Register reports that there are currently no plans to begin charging guests who make a reservation at one of Disneyland's restaurants and subsequently fail to show up. A number of Walt Disney World's most popular restaurants have recently started to charge $10 per person for groups that do not cancel more than 24 hours in advance.

Walt Disney World has made the move in an attempt to reduce congestion at its dining locations. Visitors to the resort are able to make reservations up to 6 months in advance via its website. As a result, restaurants are frequently fully booked and at many dining locations walk-ins are now a thing of the past during peak seasons.

With a larger proportion of Disneyland's guests being locals, it is possible that the problem is viewed as less severe. For now at least, guests will continue to be able to make reservations at restaurants at Disneyland, Disney California Adventure and Downtown Disney without the threat of a charge should they fail to attend.
