    Help!

    Is there a way to link the dining request to my resort ressie? Or is the only way to book a CRT reservation on dining plan (and not pay w/cc) through phone?

    Hope this isn't a stupid question. :confused3

    Thanks so much.

    Call 407-WDW-dine and make the reservation. You still have to put down a cc in case you don't show, but they won't charge it. They'll ask you if you are on the dining plan. Give them your reservation # and it should show up in DME.

    DME is Disney's Magical Express, the free bus transportation from Orlando airport to WDW resort. For a moment your question caught me off guard.
    I think you want to ask about MDE, My Disney Experience, app. right?
    If you are having trouble booking CRT, I would call.
    MDE has been reported as being problematic for quite awhile.
    Have Fun!

    Can't believe I did that. Thanks. Yes, I meant MDE.

    Yeah, so when I book through MDE for CRT they want me to pay in full via credit card. But I have the dining plan and I don't want to do that. In the old system you could link the resort ressie with your dining plan to the ADR so that you only used the cc for a guarantee and not full payment.

    I know I can still call, but I would like to be able to book online using the dining plan.

    Thanks everyone for helping. :)

    I had to call to do this one. Even though my DDP was linked it still wouldn't let me bypass paying in full.

    Just a perk of the new system for now :rolleyes2

    I made our reservation before purchasing the DDP (which of course I had to pay in full at the time of booking). Once I purchased the DDP, I just called Disney dining and they were able to add it to my DDP and then refunded the amount that I had already paid.
