    Hi moms thanks for all your help, but I'm struggling with one more thing when booking cinderellas Royal table you need to pay in advance what happens if you have the dining plan

    Hi Amy,

    Thank you so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with this great question. Dining with Disney Princesses inside Cinderella Castle is truly a magical experience; you are in for a royal treat!  

    When making an Advance Dining Reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table, you will need to prepay if you do not have a Disney Dining Plan. If you do have a Disney Dining Plan, you will need to provide a credit card number to hold the reservation, but your credit card will not be charged. (Important note: If you do not show up for your reservation or cancel on the day of your reservation, your credit card will be charged the full amount.) 

    So what happens if you make your Advance Dining Reservation initially when you do not have a Disney Dining Plan and then later purchase a Disney Dining Plan? In this scenario, you can contact Disney Dining with your Disney Dining Plan confirmation number, and if they cannot assist you, they will transfer you to Guest Services who will link your Disney Dining Plan to your reservation. Alternatively, you can wait until you arrive and let a Cast Member know that you would like to use your Disney Dining Plan. In either case, the prepayment you made initially will be refunded. 

    It was a pleasure assisting you today, Amy. Please let me know if you have any other questions about your upcoming trip! 

    Wishing you many magical memories!
