    I am trying to figure out the best dining to choose. I have a family of five but then I also have family members that live in Arizona. I am trying to make reservations for a character or show dining but it is asking for my credit card.what if I get a plan

    Hello, Lynn!

    It sounds like you are going to have a HUGE family reunion on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World! This is so exciting!  I know you all are going to have a MAGICAL time!

    I want to ease your mind about using your credit card to make reservations for a Disney Character meal or Dinner Show.  The credit card is ONLY used to hold your reservation and is not charged. That means that if you decide to purchase the Disney Dining Plan, you can certainly use your Table Service credits to pay for your special Disney Dining experiences. To make this process easy and less confusing for you, I would recommend calling Disney Dining at (407) WDW-DINE and speak with a Cast Member directly. 

    As you are deciding the best Disney Dining experiences to choose, my absolute FAVORITE Dinner Show is Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Review.  The food is incredible, and the entertainment is "toe-tapping" terrific! My favorite Disney Character Dining experience is Akershus Royal Banquet Hall to meet your favorite Disney Princesses for breakfast. The food is family-friendly for ANY age, and you better come hungry because the food is served in a buffet/family style setting.

    If you have other questions, please let me know!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
