    I have the deluxe dining plan but when trying to book Cinderella's Royal Table they are looking for a payment?

    Dear Sharon,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for stopping by with your question! It's great to hear that you have purchased the most comprehensive meal plan available and that you will be using your credits to dine at my favorite storybook-like dining location in the world, Cinderella's Royal Table! 

    It turns out, Sharon, that some dining experiences (Dinner Shows, Dining & Dessert Events, etc.) such as Cinderella's Royal Table require prepayment at the time of booking so you are correct when saying that the system prompts you to provide your credit card information. In this case, it is the only way to finalize the reservation and guarantee a spot. You have nothing to worry about, though, as your credit card will only be kept "on file" in order to guarantee your reservation in case you do not show up that day or try to cancel it less than the 24-hour cancellation window. Once you are at your dining location, be sure to inform your server that you and your party are on the Deluxe Dining Plan, and then your credit card will not be charged, but instead your credits will be redeemed. 
    I hope my answer helps you plan your vacation. Please come back and see us if you have any more questions. 
    Happy Disney Dining,

Hi! I'm Desiree from Lima, Peru. My family will never ever tire of visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth, even if means traveling almost 3,000 miles to do so! My husband and I love to watch the fireworks with our kids, but the best magic happens when the grandparents come along and we all feel the same age in front of Cinderella Castle! I love giving tips about different types of resorts and traveling with multigenerational groups.
