    I just booked the fantasmic premium package as well as the storytellers breakfast and they both say “your reservation has been prepaid” and gives a total. But it hasn’t actually taken the money out of my account. When should I expect that?

    Hello there, Nicolette!

    You sound like a girl after my own heart. I just love Character Dining experiences and have such fond memories of dining at Storytellers Cafe with my children on our very first visit to Disneyland Resort. We started our day with an early morning breakfast and were completely captivated by the magic as soon as we stepped into the stunning lobby of Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.

    I know of a few experiences that require full payment at the time of booking like the World of Color Dessert Party, but that doesn't appear to be the case with the two reservations you mention. Although a credit card is required to make a reservation for both the Fantasmic! Dining Package and Mickey's Tales of Adventure Character Breakfast at Storytellers Cafe, you won't be charged until your meal is complete, or unless you do not cancel your scheduled reservation according to the current cancellation policies. At this time Fantasmic! Dining Packages require cancellation at least one day in advance to avoid a per-person cancellation fee, while the Storytellers Cafe breakfast requires cancellation at least two hours prior to your scheduled reservation. If your plans change as your travel date nears, you'll be able to make the necessary modifications or cancellations right from the Disneyland Resort Mobile App. This information should also be noted in your confirmation emails so keep those handy if you need to call with any additional questions about these reservations. If your confirmation email does indicate a pre-paid meal or policies other than those I've mentioned I recommend reaching out by phone to confirm when you can expect any pre-paid charges to appear on your account.

    Fantasmic! is a fan-favorite evening spectacular, and if you haven't already had the chance to experience Mickey's dream battle, you'll soon see why. The soundtrack alone is reason enough to make this a must-not-miss performance!  Keep in mind that valid admission and park reservations are both required in addition to the dining package, and entertainment is subject to change or cancellation.

    Nicolette, I hope this information was helpful! Please don't hesitate to come back and see us again with any additional planning questions.

    Wishing you a magical visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
