    When planning our meal reservations with the Disney Dining Plan how do I know that they accept the dining plan and what type /how many credits meals are? I have seen some restaurants require prepayment, do they not accept the dining plan? Thank you!!

    Hey, howdy, hey, Morgan and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Dashing to delicious dining destinations is what Tiggers like me do best and with a Disney Dining Plan it is easier to taste the best of the "World."

    To determine if the restaurant of your choice accepts your Dining Plan just hop over to the Dining webpage and look for the filter that says "Dining Plans Accepted." Choose your Dining Plan and then use the other filters to sort by Dining Experience, Price Range (per person), Cuisine, and Guest Rating. Scroll down the list to find a place that looks "supercalifragilisticexpiali-delicious" and select it to see the menu and how many dining credits it will require per person. This information will be located on the restaurant webpage to the right of the photo in blue. It will say "Some Dining Plans Accepted." Once that is clicked a pop-up window will open with the information to help you plan your meal. I love this quick reference with the complete list of 2019 Disney Dining Plan Participating Locations.

    Your Disney Resort Hotel Package should have the dining plan linked to it in My Disney Experience. This alerts the online reservation not to charge you but to have your credit card on file to hold your spot. If you have a Dining Plan and are charged for a prepaid meal then contact Dining Reservations at (407) 939-1947.

    Disney Dad Tip: We find that Signature Dining Experiences are the best way to use your Table Service entitlements.

    Morgan, enjoy making many delicious and Magical Memories.
