    Which table service restaurants in Magic Kingdom require full payment in advance when you make a dining reservation? I have heard that Cinderella’s Royal Table does. Any others?

    Hi Alicia,

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Let me help you with your question today so you can continue planning for the best vacation ever at Walt Disney World Resort.

    So many dining options across the whole Resort. There is something for everyone, and not only inside the Theme Parks. Some of my favorite options are at Resort Hotels, like Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort, and Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney's Wilderness Lodge.

    At this time, all Table-Service restaurants require a credit card guarantee for advanced dining reservations. But a few restaurants and dinner shows may require full payment in advance. In Magic Kingdom Park at this time, only Cinderella's Royal Table and the Fireworks Dessert Parties require advanced payment. Note that if you are taking advantage of a Dining Plan to pay for your meal, your credit card will only be used to guarantee the reservation. To do so online, you will need to have a valid vacation package with Dining and be logged in to your My Disney Experience account before making the reservation. You can also call the dining team at (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463 and mention you will be using your Dining Plan entitlements.

    One last tip: why not enjoy a royal feast with a Signature Celebration Package at Cinderella's Royal Table? You'll get to dine right inside Cinderella Castle, followed by priority viewing of the fireworks and an incredible dessert party. Happy planning!
