    Hi Brandy!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel AND the Disney Vacation Club Family! I'm thrilled that you decided to join, and I feel sure that it will be a decision you won't ever regret. You and your family are in for a treat on your first Walt Disney World Resort vacation as Members. There are so many perks and benefits for Disney Vacation Club Members, so be sure to take advantage of all of the great savings!

    If you want to make a dining reservation at any of the Table-Service restaurants that require pre-payment, you would still have to pay at the time you make the reservation unless you have a Disney Dining Plan listed on your resort reservation. So that would include Cinderella's Royal Table. If you decide to add a Dining Plan after you make your reservations, you can always call and have your Dining Plan attached to your reservation and have your payment refunded. The other option is to wait until you arrive at the dining location and have your server make that change for you. 

    I hope this helps with your planning and if we can do anything else to make your trip more magical, please let us know. We're always happy to help. Have a magical day and happy planning!
