    I read some restaurants require prepayment at booking. 1. What is the case for those using dining plans? 2. Is there a list of which restaurants require prepayment?

    Hi Ashley!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We love to help Guests with their questions!

    There are several dining experiences that require a prepayment at the time of booking. Those are Cinderella's Royal Table, Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show and Mickey's Backyard BBQ. If you are planning to use your Disney Dining Plan for any of these reservations, simply link your resort reservation to your My Disney Experience account prior to booking. You can also call 407-WDW-DINE (407-939-3463) and a reservation specialist can link your resort reservation with your dining plan to the dining reservation. Keep in mind that a credit card will still be required to hold the reservation. If you have already made a reservation for one of these dining experiences and prepaid, then you will still have the option to use your dining plan. Upon your arrival, simply tell your server and he or she will see that your credit card is refunded and your dining plan credits are used instead.

    I hope you have a magical vacation and feel free to come back if you have any other questions!
