Hey there, we have a trip coming up and we’re going to be taking our children for Lunch at Cinderella’s Royal Table. This is the only reservation that I believe we made in which the full amount was charged to our credit card. I thought Hoop-dee-doo did this as well, but I don’t believe my card was charged, just that I had to put it on file in case we no-show.
We are also using the Disney Dining Plan, and I was hoping to use points for this meal. If we get there can we ask to be charged with the dining plan instead and then refunded the money on the credit card? When I was making the reservation, it seemed like there was an option for points but I couldn’t click into it.
Just keep in mind that it will use two table service credits per person (eta: at Royal Table). If you would have an extra credit leftover with your planned meal reservations then that’s worth it. But other table service meals can run $50+ per person easily which makes using two credits on an $85 meal less of a good value.
No it’s so weird. I wasn’t charged. Granted, I didn’t do it myself, I had a disney travel agent do the initial dining reservations for me. No points deducted, no credit card used. I’m just going to call up and see if I can pay so something weird doesn’t happen and the reservation gets cancelled out from under me.
Was the dining plan on your hotel reservation at the time your TA booked the dining reservation? If so, they may only use your card for a guarantee. But if you are using an agent, you may want to let that person follow up on the procedure. They will probably have quicker access to the correct answer or may already know it.
Personally I feel the same. Any TS that charges 2 TS credits (besides the uber expensive Signature restaurants) is a poor value. Unless like you said, you aren’t going to be able to use the TS credit anyway.
