    Hi all, I am planning my first time visit of Disney, and I want to book dinner at Cinderella's Castle, but if I book and pre-pay now, and choose to get the dining plan later, can I apply that so I get the credit back on my card?

    Hi, Laura! Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World! May it be the first of many! Yes, you may book now and have it credited back later if you get a Disney Dining Plan.  There are a few dining experiences at Walt Disney World Resort which require a credit card payment to hold the reservation, and Cinderella's Royal Table is among them. However, when you arrive for the meal, you can pay for it using any method you prefer.  You could choose to pay cash, use a different credit card, pay with traveler's checks, redeem Disney Dollars or Disney Gift Cards, or utilize Disney Dining Plan credits. Simply tell the Cast Member serving you how you'd like to make your payment. If you choose to use your Disney Dining Plan instead of your credit card, the Cast Member will refund the purchase price to the credit card and deduct the Disney Dining Plan credits from your account. Be sure to bring the credit card you used to hold the reservation and your Key to the World card with you to the meal. Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
