    Can I reserve a dessert dining with my credit card and pay for it with a gift card that day? Or will my credit card be billed immediately?

    chEARs Christina!

    Thanks for strolling by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I think it’s fabulous that you are racking up Disney Gift Cards for your upcoming vacation, I have been a budgeter since I was a kiddo, and nothing makes me happier than knowing I have all the prepaid savings I need for the fun stuff!

    I just got off the phone with a fantastic Cast Member who helped me make dining reservations for our next trip to Walt Disney World Resort. You are correct, a credit card is required to secure your booking, but you may choose to use a Gift Card when you settle your bill at the restaurant. A quick note though, there are specific dining experiences such as Cinderella’s Royal Table, that you prepay at the time of reservation. Also, if you miss your seating, and don’t cancel within the allotted time, your credit card will be charged.

    Christina, just so you know, Walt Disney World accepts multiple forms of payment at all four Theme Parks, Resorts, Disney Springs and the Water Parks. These forms of payment include, but are not limited to, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Debit Cards, cash, and Disney Gift Cards. If you are a lucky Disney Visa Cardholder, be prepared to save on dining, merchandise, and select experiences. Make sure to have your Disney Visa Card with you to receive your exclusive savings!

    Enjoy your planning, and save a spot at the table for me!
