    We have the "middle" dining plan. How does that work if I make reservations? Also how does it work if I make reservations for character dining--does that cost more than just my dining plan?

    Hi Teresa!

    To make your Dining Reservations, simply visit the Online Reservations page and search for the meals you'd like to enjoy. You can do this up to 180 days prior to your arrival on site and I'd highly recommend that you book as far out as possible for the best availability at some of the most popular dining locations.

    The dining system will have you log in to your Resort Reservation to connect your reservations. To do this, simply input your log in and password, or create a log in and connect your reservation by clicking Create an Account in the top left corner of the website just below the Walt Disney World logo.

    For Character Dining restaurants, you will need to include a credit card number to guarantee your reservation. The card will not be charged unless you don't show for your reservation and do not cancel your reservation in the specified time. You'll see these policies as you process your reservations. Character Dining does not cost extra when you are on the Disney Dining Plan. Cinderella's Royal Table however does require 2 Table Service Credits per person on the Disney Dining Plan.

    You may also use your Disney Dining Plan to secure reservations for Dinner Shows. To do so, I recommend that you call a Disney Dining Cast Member at (407) WDW-DINE to have your Dining Plan connected to the reservation. Dinner Shows require 2 Table Service Credits per person under the Disney Dining Plan.

    I encourage you to review the details of your 2012 Disney Dining Plan by visiting the online pamphlet which I've included a link to for you.

    If you have any other questions, I hope you'll visit me again soon Teresa!

    Wishing you a Magical Walt Disney World vacation!
