    If I’ve got CRT/SOA reservations on hold w dining credits instead of paying up front at reservation time and am planning on paying out of pocket when I arrive will that tie up 4 of my dining credits that we want to use on other meals? One is our last day.

    Greetings Gretchen and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question! 

    I am so happy to hear that you will soon be making memories at the Walt Disney World Resort. Some of our most cherished moments as a family happened at Cinderella’s Royal Table and other dining locations!

    Gretchen, when you arrive at the restaurant simply tell Cast Members that you will be paying for your meal out of pocket. This way you will be able to use your entitlements to redeem meals at other locations. You are welcome to make as many dining reservations as you would like because they are not linked to your Disney Dining Plan credits and will not hold them up. 

    I hope this helps you while planning! Please stop by real soon with more questions.

    Best magical wishes,
