    I’m starting to plan out dining reservations for our fall trip. Thinking maybe going to Cinderelllas fairy tale table. But it looks like you have pre-pay for that one. Can you tell me how I can use a Disney gift card for that? I don’t see where to put it.

    Royal greetings William! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'd be happy to help you with another great vacation planning question.

    Making Advanced Dining Reservations for an upcoming visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth is one of my favorite ways to build excitement before a trip. With so many delicious dining opportunities, my family and I like to try at least one new (to us) restaurant on each vacation. On our next visit, my little princess and I also plan to share a meal with some of our favorite Disney friends at Cinderella's Royal Table. It will be our first experience dining inside Cinderella Castle, and we can't wait!

    William, you are correct that upon making an Advanced Dining Reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table, full payment including tax and gratuity will be required. Your credit card will be charged; however, at the conclusion of your royal feast, let your server know of your payment preference, and bibbidi bobbidi boo, he or she will refund the original payment method and accept a Disney Gift Card

    I hope this has been helpful for your planning purposes, and I'm sending you virtual pixie-dust in hopes that all of your dining reservation dreams come true! Don't forget to download the My Disney Experience mobile app before your visit. Did you know that with this magical app, you can view, make, and modify Advanced Dining Reservations on the go? It's so convenient! If you have any other questions regarding dining, navigating My Disney Experience, and more, send them our way. We're always happy to help.

    Bon appétit!
