    Hi! We are visiting WDW in July. When I try to book for CRT online I am required to pay upfront on my credit card, but I have the Disney Dining Plan. Will I still be able to use the dining plan on the day and have my CC reimbursed? Thanks

    Yes, you have it exactly right.

    A few of the Disney restaurants, including Cinderella's Royal Table, require use of a credit card to hold a reservation. However, once you are actually at the restaurant, you can ask to have your credit card payment refunded and then actually pay for your meal with another method. This is a VERY common situation with guests who are on the Disney Dining Plan.

    My family dined at CRT a few months ago. We held the reservation with our credit card, but at the restaurant we asked for a refund and actually paid with a Disney gift card. Our server processed the refund request right there at the restaurant while we were still seated. He gave us a receipt that showed that a the refund was being processed. The actual notation of the refund came through on our very next credit card statement.

    Good luck with your planning and have a great trip to WDW!
