    Which restaurants, shows etc do you have to pay for when making a reservation?

    Hi Zoe!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!  Most restaurants just require a credit card as a guarantee when booking, but as long as you show up for your reservation (or cancel by midnight the day before) your card won't be charged.  The list of exceptions to this rule is pretty short.  The dining locations listed below do require advance payment in full at the time you make your reservation.
    • Cinderella’s Royal Table
    • Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show
    • Chefs Tasting Wine Dinner at Flying Fish Cafe
    • Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue
    • IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party
    • Mickey’s Backyard BBQ
    • My Disney Girl's Perfectly Princess Tea Party
    • Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party
    Throughout the year, there may also be some extra-magical dining experiences offered that are added to the list, but you can easily find out the reservation policies by checking the Dining page of the website, calling (407) WDW-DINE (939-3463) or asking us here at the Moms Panel.

    Wishing you pixie-dusted planning, Zoe!
