    Can you use a Disney Gift Card to reserve CRT? We will be on the dining plan so will they give us a gift card back if we can use one?

    A few of the Disney restaurants, including Cinderella's Royal Table, require use of a credit card to hold a reservation. (A gift card won't work for this.) However, once you are actually at the restaurant, you can ask to have your credit card payment refunded and then actually pay for your meal with another method. This is a very common situation with guests who are on the Disney Dining Plan. If you're on the Dining Plan, just ask your server to refund the credit card and instead deduct Dining Plan credits from your account. This will be no problem whatsoever.

    My family dined at CRT a few months ago. We held the reservation with our credit card, but at the restaurant we asked for a refund and actually paid with a Disney gift card. Our server processed the refund request right there at the restaurant while we were still seated. He gave us a receipt that showed that a the refund was being processed. The actual notation of the refund came through on our very next credit card statement.

    If you do not have your refund within a month, I would certainly contact your credit card carrier and Disney at 407-W-DISNEY to inquire about the status of your refund.
