    what would it be the best restaurant to take my 9 year old that believe in fairies like tinker bell? also some of the restaurants ask me to pre-pay for reservation, but I do have the dinning plan, so how that work? I am a bit confuse.

    Hi there, Raquel!

    Right now, none of the restaurants offer fairies. Your best bet is to dine with the princesses, either at Cinderella's Royal table in Magic Kingdom, Restaurant Akershus in Epcot, or a Cinderella-themed dinner at 1900 Park Fare in Disney's Grand Floridian.

    Pre-payment is required at some Disney restaurants, but your Disney Dining Plan will entitle you to a refund when you arrive. Simply let your server know you are on the Dining Plan - or the Cast Member who checks you in - and a refund will be applied to your credit card. You will have the correct number of entitlements debited from your Dining Plan at the end of your meal.

    In some cases, when you make your reservation over the phone at (407) WDW-DINE, a Cast Member can debit the plan in advance and not require a credit card payment. While there is no guarantee that this will happen, it doesn't hurt to ask.

    Finally, for the little one who believes in fairies ... make sure she visits Tinker Bell's Nook, currently located in Adventureland in Magic Kingdom. Not only will she be able to meet Tinker Bell herself, but often many of Tink's friends come out to join her. Make sure to get a Times Guide when you arrive at the Magic Kingdom for specific meet and greet times.

    Have a wonderful trip!

    See you later, celebrator,
