    When making reservations for dining that require pre-payment, what happens if we wish to use our Dining Plan credits? Is the prepayment refunded after we have dined and used our credits?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Simone!

    One of the many benefits of staying at a Disney Resort hotel is being able to add a Disney Dining Plan to your Magic Your Way Vacation Package! This will definitely give you the feeling of an all-inclusive vacation, and as an international Guest myself, I just love arriving at the Walt Disney World Resort knowing that all my meals are already paid for – not having to worry about the exchange rate while ordering is absolutely amazing!

    Some dining experiences require Guests to pay in advance, but if you have a Disney Dining Plan and would like to use your entitlements to pay for your meal, simply talk to your server and explain that you will be using entitlements from your dining plan as payment. They will be happy to reverse the charges on your credit card so you can get reimbursed.

    Thank you for stopping by once again! We hope you continue to visit us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel as you plan your vacation.

    Best magical wishes,
