    I recently made dinner reservations at Ohana for our trip six months away, and used my card to secure the table. If I choose to purchase the Disney Dining Plan between now and our trip, will I be able to use the dining credits for that dinner?

    Hi Jeff,

    Mmm...'Ohana. Just thinking about that place has my mouth watering! The melt in your mouth steak, perfectly cooked noodles, fun entertainment, and the best part of the meal...the 'Ohana Bread Pudding. It's definitely one of my family's favorite dining locations around the entire Walt Disney World Resort! You're going to LOVE it!

    I'm happy to let you know that the credit card you submitted with your reservation is simply used to hold the reservation and will not be charged unless you don't show up for your dinner and didn't cancel your reservation ahead of time. You'll be able to pay for your meal however you'd like when you're actually there enjoying the experience. If you do decide to purchase the Disney Dining Plan, you may certainly use those entitlements to cover your meal, or you may also feel free to use Disney Gift Cards, a valid credit card, or your MagicBand to charge it back to your Disney Resort hotel room.

    Depending what time your dinner reservation is, you may be able to view the spectacular Happily Ever After fireworks from 'Ohana. If you finish your meal before then, there's also a great view from the beach at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, so feel free to enjoy the view from there, too! One of my favorite family memories was a great big family hug at that Resort after enjoying our scrumptious 'Ohana dinner and the incredible fireworks display that followed. Such special times!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jeff, and please let us know if you have any other questions as you're planning your visit. I hope that you have a truly magical...and delicious...vacation!
