    Hi, Our family is going to WDW in October and have a DDP, with 6months to go we would like to book a charactor dinning plan or two. We have booked via a UK travel agent, please could you let me know how to pay in advance using the DP?

    Hello Denise,

    Congratulations on booking your trip to Disney World. Your family must be thrilled!

    I am a big fan of the Disney Dining Plan (DDP) and of the character meals too!

    The good news is, because the DDP is part of the Magic Your Way vacation packages, you have already paid for many of your meals prior to arriving on property.

    However, there are a few dining experiences where payment or a credit card will be required at the time of booking. For character meals, this can include Cinderella's Royal Table.

    But many of the other character meals, like Chef Mickey's and The Crystal Palace do not require advance payment. They participate in the DDP.

    If you are ready to make reservations, you can do so online or by calling 407-WDW-DINE.

    Hope this helps!

My family loves our Main Street in Ohio. But there's simply no comparison to Main Street U.S.A.! We don't get to Disney quite as often as I'd like, but that just means finding new ways to sprinkle Pixie Dust on our adventures! Learn More About Monina
