    I'm on the fence about the dining plan. I was going to make advance reservations, add up the average costs and decide. When booking the Hoop-Dee-Doo musical review, it requires pre-payment. Will that be credited if we book the dining plan?

    Hi Stephanie, 

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  I think that you are very smart to look at the numbers before making a decision.  My family tends to do a lot of signature dining and character meals, so for us the Disney Dining Plan has always been the easy choice.  

    I have good news for you Stephanie.  If you choose to add the Disney Dining Plan you will certainly be credited the payment for all of your dining reservations that require a credit card pre-payment .  If you choose to add the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Review Dinner Show you have two options.  Your first option would be to inform the Cast Member when you arrive that you would like to use the dining plan and they will credit your account.  The second option can be a little more tricky, but if you would like to have everything taken care of before leaving you can call Disney Dining at (407) 939-3463.  This option will require you to cancel your reservation and re-book.  This option makes me slightly more nervous, because you may not get your same reservation.  Multiple Cast Members are taking reservations at the same time, and when your existing reservation is cancelled, someone else may potentially grab it.  

    I hope my answer helped Stephanie.  If you have any other questions, I would be happy to assist you in any way I can.  Have a great time at the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Review Dinner Show!
