    I have booked a week at Bay Lake Tower Resort through Disney vacation Club rental points. I requested the disney dining plan but we do not pay for it until we arrive. I was just wondering when I book my restaurants will i need to pay in advance?

    Hello Kathleen!  So proud to hear from a fellow member of the Disney Vacation Club.  You will be happy to know that you do not have to pay in advance just for booking your dining reservations.  The majority of the Disney restaurants do not require any advance deposits.  However, there are a few restaurants, such as Cinderella's Royal Table,  that will require you to leave a credit card number in order to hold your reservation.  If for some reason you fail to make your reservation, they will charge your card a fee.  If you are booking on-line, you will be prompted should you need to leave a credit card number.  You can also call (407)WDW-DINE and a Cast Member will be happy to help you any questions you may have. 
    I hope this helps as you continue planning for a wonderful Walt Disney World vacation.  Please come and visit us again.  Have a magical day!
