    I want to make a reservation for Cinderella's table and use our dining plan for it. It says I must make an advance payment on my credit card to make a reservation. Will it be refunded when we are there and use our dining plan?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Melanie. I'm so glad you stopped by with this great question!

     A reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table is an experience fit for a fairytale. The beautiful architecture, delicious food, and fantastic company make this restaurant a must-visit during a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I completely understand your concern. I once had to make a dining reservation for 14 at Cinderella's Royal Table. I was terrified that our dining plan wouldn't cover the meal, and I would be stuck with that bill. Can you imagine?! I'm happy to tell you that if the Disney Dining Plan is part of your Disney Resort Hotel Package at the time you make your dining reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table, your credit card will not be charged for pre-payment. When you make the reservation online, you will be required to enter your credit card information to guarantee your reservation, like most other dining reservations, but your Disney Dining Plan will magically cover the pre-payment requirement! If you would prefer to make the dining reservation with a friendly Cast Member, call (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-1947. Cinderella's Royal Table books to capacity quite quickly, so I recommend making your dining reservation as soon as possible. You may begin making dining reservations 180 days prior to your arrival; it's just one of the many benefits of staying at a Disney Resort hotel

     Thanks for stopping by, Melanie. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
