    Hello! I just made an ADR at CRT for August. We do not yet have a DDP, but are thinking of adding it later. As it is required to pay in full when making a CRT reservation, if I do purchase a DDP, will I be able to get the ADR payment back?

    Hello Chelsea! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    You have made a good choice to dine with royalty at Cinderella's Royal Table. The Fairytale Dining experience in Cinderella's Castle is like no other experience at Walt Disney World Resort.

    I am in a similar position as you, Chelsea, as I have made Advanced Dining Reservations for Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show for August and have been charged for the experience. My family is up-in-the-air about purchasing the 2017 Disney Dining Plan as we are unsure that our little ones will get value on their food credits (they're light eaters).

    The good news is that whether you or I decide to add the 2017 Disney Dining Plan later, we will be reimbursed the full amount we have been charged upon arriving at our respective restaurants and indicating our desire to use Disney Dining Plan credits. Simply speak to the Hostess or your Server and inform them of your request.

    Dining at Cinderella's Royal Table requires 2 Table Service credits per person and is only available for the 2017 Disney Dining Plan and Deluxe Dining Plan.

    When celebrating at the Magic Kingdom and trying to get the perfect picture with Cinderella before your meal, be sure to consider Memory Maker to take advantage of Disney PhotoPass Photographers at this experience and others all across Walt Disney World Resort.

    Here's to a "Happily Ever After" Dining Experience!
