no sorry. The price is the same. You can get the Tables in Wonderland card at a discount with an annual pass

There's no discount on the dining plan for AP holders. The only "perk" you get that's dining plan related is the ability to purchase the dining plan without having to buy park tickets too.

I am trying to pay for this vacation in cash. I can afford to put the room on my debit card now, then add the park passes next pay check.
When I buy the passes can I add the dining plan then? Or does everything have to purchased at one time?

If you buy a room only reservation now, you will have to convert it to a package at the time you purchase tickets and/or dining. This can be done, just so you know you have to do a conversion of your reservation from a room only to a package.

The big differences between the two is that packages require a $200 deposit per room which must be paid at the time of booking (if your deposit for a room only reservation was under $200 you'll have to add enough to make it $200 at the time you convert it) and packages must be paid in full at least 45 days before arrival. There's no option to pay the balance at check-in like there is with a room-only reservation.

There are also cancellation penalties if you cancel a package reservation within 45 days of arrival, and a change fee if you downgrade the package (remove the dining plan or rebook a cheaper resort, for example) within 45 days of arrival.

You could also add the dining at almost any time after you add the tickets. All package components must be added to the reservation no later than 72 hours before the arrival date, and if you add components within 45 days you must pay for them in full at the time you add them. If you add them separately you'll have to add the tickets first.

This is good information! I have a question to ask about the converting. I had booked a room using the bounceback offer when I was still at Disney but didn't add the dining plan. When I do add the dining plan, is my room rate still going to be the same? Correct me if I am wrong, the only time my room rate would change is if there is a free dining plan for those dates and I add it on, right?

Hi, we are going the end of April. We have 13 of us, 8 adults dining plan, and 4 children dining plan, and one 10 month old. Just how do we go about ordering? Should we do it by families? Or do you order all the childrens meals? Then order the adult meals? How do they want you to handle all that with the Key to the World cards? We don't want to be "those people" and mess up lines with others glaring at us.

Hi All,

I have asked this question in 2 other places and cant seem to get a response!

I have a quick question about the ADR's that require a deposit.......How much is the typical deposit and do you still have to pay the deposit if you are using the DDP and using your TS credits? We already know our ADR date, so we are just trying to find out the details about deposits.....If you have to pay the deposit with the DDP then when do you get the money back?

Thanks all

There are no ADRs that require a deposit ("deposit" meaning partial payment at time of booking).

Cinderella's Royal Table and the dinner shows require prepayment in full at the time you book them unless at the time you book you have a Disney resort reservation that shows you are on the dining plan and you state you wish to use dining credits to pay for the meal. Then you will be required to give a credit card number to hold the reservation. The card will not be charged unless you don't cancel within 24 hours and you don't show up. If you don't show your card will be charged a per person "no show" fee. I'm not sure what the fee is. It varies for each restaurant.

If you don't have a dining plan at the time you book, you pay in full and then when you arrive state that you will be using your dining credits as payment. Your prepayment will then be refunded.

The restaurants and events that require a credit card hold regardless of whether or not you are on a dining plan are: Akershus, California Grill, Fantasmic Dining Package, Candlelight Processional Dining Package (when offered), Lunch with an Imagineeer (no DDP) and Victoria & Albert's (no DDP). Pay attention to the cancellation deadlines when you book these, because there will be a per person no show fee charged if you don't cancel and you don't show up. California Grill's no show fee is $20 per person. I'm not sure what the others are.

It's going to go by how many rooms you have. You'll be assigned dining credits based on each room. If you have people from room A, B, and C dining together, a person from room A will not be able to use their KTTW card to pay for meals for the entire group - only for the number of people who are registered in Room A. Same for the other two rooms. If you're all registered in the same room on the same room reservation number you can do this, but unless your group is in a large DVC villa or a suite you're going to have separate rooms.

Sounds like you are concerned about CS restaurants. Break your group up for ordering into groups from each room, have someone from that room place the order for their group and pay with their KTTW card. It means your group, if you have rooms A, B, and C, will have to make three separate orders. If your group splits up and eats in different places, make sure everyone has a key card from their own room so that they can access their own dining credits. Otherwise you may run into a situation where the split group won't have access to enough dining credits to pay for everyone's meals.

If Room A with 2 adults and 2 kids takes a child from Room B to a restaurant with them, Room A can't use their key card to buy a meal for that child - they'll be limited to only 2 adult and 2 child meals on the dining plan for Room A's card - so they'll have to have the Room B child's key card to pay for that child's meal.

If your discount offer is applicable to a package, then you're fine if you just want to add the dining plan. If you have a room only reservation and your discount is not applicable to a package, you'll have to give the discount up when you convert to a package to add dining. If you don't already have a package, you'll need to ask when you call if the discount you have would also be applicable to a package.

thank you so much for the info....the only one we are planning on doing is the fantasmic dining package. It was just getting a bit confusing to us as far as the credit card holds went..... I thought Spirit of Aloha needed a credit card hold as well though? Do you by chance know if that is true?

Spirit of Aloha is a dinner show, so it is under the category of "CRT and the dinner shows." It requires prepayment in full unless you have a dining plan at the time you book. If you register with a dining plan it will require a credit card hold.

The other dinner shows are Hoop de Doo Revue and Mickey's Backyard Barbecue.

Me again!

We actually have 4 rooms. So all the registered people in room A must order together, B room, order together and so on, is that what I understand you saying? The A room KTTW cards are grouped together, then the B room cards, is that right? do they distinguish the child cards from the adult? Do we write names on them? Maybe Abbie doesn't want a snack, but Ben does, do you label Abbie and Ben's cards? I'm so glad you are here to help me!
