    I am wanting to make a reservation for the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show. I have a dining plan, but it's wanting to charge me upfront. Is this charge in addition to the meal plan deduction?

    Hey Mandi!

    Disney’s Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show is a show that I really enjoyed. I wasn’t sure how I would like it but I was really impressed. The dinner was so tasty and the entertainment even better. The hula dancers and the fire dancers were my favorite.

    It is my understanding that when booking online if the system doesn’t recognize that you are on a dining plan and you are making a dining reservation for this dinner show your credit card will be charged for the full price of the meal. When you show up for your reservation you can tap your MagicBand at check in, and when they see that you are on the dining plan the Cast Member will reimburse you for the amount charged to your credit card and instead use your Disney Dining Plan entitlements. Sometimes I like to call the Disney Dining telephone line instead to make my reservations. When I do this often times the Cast Member is able to see that I am on the dining plan and will only use my credit card to hold the reservation and not actually charge it. If you are in doubt or have additional questions I would suggest calling and the Cast member will be happy to help you!

    If you have any Celebrations, be sure to mention them at booking so that they can make your evening extra special! Don’t forget to use your My Disney Experience App to keep track of all of your plans!

    I hope that I have helped to answer your question. Have an Unforgettable time!
