    I made reservations at Cinderella's Royal Table, which requires a credit card pre-payment but we have decided to use the Disney Dining Plan. Will my credit card be refunded if I would prefer to use DDP credits once we're there?

    Hi Kevin, 

    Thank you for sending your question the the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Congratulations on securing a reservation for Cinderella's Royal Table, it can be difficult to find a reservation!

    If you choose to use your Disney Dining Plan at Cinderella's Royal Table, all you need to do is tell the Cast Member when you receive your cheque and he/she will credit the full amount to the credit card that you used to secure the reservation.  This happens quite a lot, since Cinderella's Royal Table needs to be paid in full in order to secure your reservation, the Cast Member will quickly adjust your cheque and process your Dining Plan Credits.  I would recommend keeping an eye on your Credit Card Statement just in case, payment may take several days to process.  

    Please keep in mind that Cinderella's Royal Table requires two Dining Plan Credits per person, and gratuities are included.  Personally, what I like to do is pay out of pocket for our meal at Cinderella's Royal Table and use the extra credits for another meal during our stay.  Since we make Advanced Dining Reservations 180 days in advance, upon our arrival I don't even notice the charge, and I can enjoy some other Table-Service dining locations during our visit.  

    I hope you have a magical visit at Cinderella's Royal Table, Kevin.  Please let us know if you have any other questions, we are always happy to help.
