    I am traveling with my sister to WDW in Dec. I want to surprise her with dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table. But I am hoping to be able to keep it a secret. Do dining reservations have to be linked to our account with our tickets, fast passes etc

    Hi Trapper! I LOVE everything about your question!!! Your sister will be so excited to share a magical surprise meal with you at Cinderella's Royal Table!!

    I have the perfect solution for you! On the day you are able to make advance dining reservations, call Dining Reservations at (407) 939-1947. When you are confirming your reservation, provide the Cast Member with an email address that isn't associated with your My Disney Experience account. The confirmation will be sent to that account and your sister will have no idea what magical surprise you have planned for her.

    We did this very thing for my kiddos during our last vacation. While they don't have phones or access to their My Disney Experience accounts, I knew they would be looking at my phone or my husband's and I didn't want to take a chance and spoil the surprise. Giving the email address not associated with my My Disney Experience account worked beautifully. I had my confirmation number and all pertinent reservation information tucked neatly away in my email and my kiddos had no idea. The look on their faces when the surprise was unveiled made for very magical memories!

    I'm so excited for you! This is such a treat for your sister! Thank you for sharing this and your other questions with the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please let us know if we can help with any other tips or advice as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
