Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- DDP qualifies us for Cat. 2 seating at Hoop Dee Doo. Can we pay out of pocket for difference in cost to upgrade to Cat. 1 seating?

- Hi Elizabeth,
The last time I was on the Dining Plan, you were not able to upgrade your category seating from a Category 2 or 3 to a Category 1, even if you were willing to pay out of pocket for the difference (this was just not an option). I do not know if this has changed or not since then (I doubt it has), but you can always call Disney Dining and ask as these rules and regulations are always subject to change.
I wanted to let you know (in case you were not aware of this) that the 2011 Dining Plan will entitle you to Category 2 or 3 seating at all Dinner Shows at WDW, but you are able to use the same two meal entitlements for the Category 1 seating for the 9:30pm show at Hoop-Dee-Doo only, which is what you are looking at doing. This is subject to availability, but it is possible to do this without paying out of pocket for the difference. Hope this is good news for you.....enjoy!
