Okay, so I know that you pay in advance for CRT and that a credit card is required to book V&A’s and California Grill.
I thought that credit cards were required to book all signature restaurants, but I put some in my cart just to play around and see what I could get, and it said that no credit card was required to book. So, I booked Citricos (party of 8) and Todd English’s bluezoo (party of 4).
I went back in two days ago because we made some modifications to our trip, so I figured I would try and book some new ADRs before calling and cancelling the ones I had. I tried to book Todd English’s again for 7 people, but when I checked out, they wanted a credit card number. I went back to look in my cart, and it said that a credit card was required to book. I also had Artist Point in my cart, and no credit card was required. I didn’t want to give them a credit card number, so I got rid of bluezoo and replaced it with Yachtsman Steakhouse. Again, no credit card was required. I was curious and played around a little more, and put a Shula’s Steakhouse in my cart, and it said that a credit card was required.
So far, I have booked Citricos, Artist Point, Todd English’s bluezoo (first time - party of 4), and Yachtsman Steakhouse without giving Disney my credit card number. However, when I was reviewing the details that Disney Dining had e-mailed me, it said that a credit card was required to book and that there would be a charge if not cancelled 24 hours in advance on all three of the Disney signature restaurants, as well as Todd English’s. But I did not give them a credit card number. So they couldn’t really charge me if I was a no-show.
Any explanation to this? Is there a flaw in the system? Should I have kept this to myself so that other people won’t realize this and book w/o credit cards and then be no-shows? I fully intend to cancel the ADRs that I’m not going to use, I was just curious about the “required” credit card.
