    hi fab panel,my 180 days is up next month & im planning my ADR's have DDP - Im also booking BBB & PL,& Pirate pal cruise, do i pay in full for these on ccard at 180 days or is it a cc hold n we pay when we get there? thanks!

    Hello Helen!  It sounds like you are planning an awesome vacation and I like how you are ready to go with your Advanced Dining Reservations!  When booking your dining reservations online, you will have the option to use your Dining Plan for the meal.  A credit card is still required, but the card details will be taken as a guarantee only. 

    One of the advantages of the Disney Dining Plan is that reservations that would otherwise require prepayment will not require prepayment for guests who wish to use their Dining Plan. However, Guest Policy states that at the time of booking, payment in full must be charged to a valid credit card or, if on a dining package, there must be a guarantee to a valid credit card. If you fail to show for your reservation and do not cancel according to the cancellation policy, your card will be charged a penalty. Be sure to read your cancellation policies carefully.

    I hope your vacation is truly magical, Helen!
