    I managed to get reservations at CRT for breakfast. I want to use my dining plan credits to pay for the meal, but I am not sure how to do this since they require that you pay in advance with a credit card.

    A few of the Disney restaurants, including Cinderella's Royal Table, require use of a credit card to hold a reservation. 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.

    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.

    So, if you are on the Dining Plan, you will need to use a credit card to reserve CRT, but while you are at the restaurant you can easily arrange to have your card refunded and instead use your Dining Plan credits to pay for the meal. Just let your server know and this will be no problem at all.
