    We are planning a vacation to WDW in early 2012 & would like to take advantage of the free Dining Plan during that time. Do any "Prepay" restaurants, like Cinderella's Royal Table or Hooptey-Do Review, take the Dining Plan? If so, how would

    Hi Samantha,

    My family LOVE the Disney Dining Plan especially when it is FREE!

    Many of the Character meals (including Cinderella's Royal Table) and all of the Dinner Shows (including the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue) do participate in the Dining Plan.

    One of the main advantages of the Dining Plan is that reservations that would otherwise require pre-payment will not require pre-payment for Guests wishing to use their dining plan.

    When making your dining reservations at restaurants normally requiring pre-payment, you will need to click on where it says "I want to use my dining plan to book reservations" which you can see at the bottom of the blue box HERE.

    You will then be asked to provide your confirmation number, last name and arrival date which will associate your dining plan to your dining reservations. You will then be able to make your reservations without having to pre-pay.

    Please note that you will still be required to enter your credit card details in order to guarantee the dining reservation but, your credit card will not be charged unless you fail to show and do not cancel your reservation in which case a penalty would be charged.

    Wishing you a magical trip!
