    I have booked my vacation for January including the Disney plus Dining Plan. I want to use it to pay for Cinderella's Royal Table dinner but it said I have to pay upfront. Will it charge my credit card now or just hold the information like with other meals

    Hi there, Irene!

    Your credit card will be charged in full at the time of booking. You can ask the Cast Member at (407) WDW-DINE if s/he could debit your Disney Dining Plan credits immediately instead of using a credit card.

    When you arrive at Cinderella's Royal Table, if the above does not work, simply remind your server that your credit card will need to be refunded. This is a commonplace occurrence at the restaurant since the payment in full policy was instituted.

    But do try to have the credits debited first.

    Have a wonderful trip!

    See you later, celebrator,
