    We are going to WDW for the first time with a 7 & $ year old, can we use our "meal" from the deluxe dining program at places like Cinderella's Castle and The Reef aquarium restaurant at EC

    Hi Max! You're going to love the ease of using the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan on your vacation. You can use your table-service credits at just about every restaurant at Walt Disney World. Click here to see the Dining Plan brochure, which includes a list of all the participating restaurants. 

    Both Cinderella's Royal Table and The Coral Reef accept the Disney Dining Plan. At Coral Reef, you'll use one table-service credit for each meal. At Cinderella's Royal Table, the upscale, gourmet "Signature" restaurants, and the dinner shows, such as the Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue, you'll use two table-service credits for a meal. (The brochure lists the restaurants and shows that are more expensive and thus require two credits.)  At Cinderella's Royal Table, your two Dining Plan credits cover not only your meal with the princesses, but also the gratuity and  a photo package.

    Have a magical first trip to Walt Disney World! Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We'd love to help!
