    Hi Moms! I will be on the DDP and would like to reserve Cinderella's Royal Table. Since you need to prepay for this meal will I still need to pay in advance if I am on the DDP? How does that work?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Ashley. We love when you stop by!

     I'm so pleased to hear you're thinking about booking a meal at Cinderella's Royal Table. This fairytale dining experience is one-of-a-kind and an absolute must-do for any Disney fan! You ask a great question about making a reservation there. I once needed to make a reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table for a party of 14. We had the Disney Dining Plan, but I was very nervous about being accidentally charged the pre-payment requirement for all 14 people. Talk about that bill - ouch! Luckily, it wasn't an issue. If the Disney Dining Plan is part of your Disney Resort Hotel Package, your credit card will not be charged for pre-payment. When you make a dining reservation online for Cinderella's Royal Table, you'll still need to enter your credit card information to guarantee the reservation, like you would for any other dining reservation, but your Disney Dining Plan will magically cover the pre-payment requirement! How's that for bibbidi-bobbidi-boo?

     Cinderella's Royal Table books to capacity quite quickly, so be sure you're ready to make that reservation the minute your 180-day dining reservation window opens up. When you hit that date, you can make your dining reservations (beginning as early as 6:00 AM) for the length of your stay. Dining reservations can be made in any order for the dates of your visit, so start by booking Cinderella's Royal Table since that's the most difficult one to secure. 

     I hope this was helpful, Ashley. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have!
