Dining at Cinderella's Royal Table

The hottest dining reservation on property is a reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table at the Cinderella's Castle in Magic Kingdom. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily family style, guests are treated royally at this dining location.

We have eaten at the Castle twice. . . once for lunch and once for dinner. After you have your advanced dining reservation, enter in the back of the Castle (from Fantasyland). The check-in is to the left. Once they have called your name, you will enter a royal chamber of sorts with suits of armor and a red carpeted staircase at one end of the room. Cinderella is greeting guests in this royal chamber. A photographer will take your picture with Cinderella. The photos will be presented to you during your meal and will include a commemorative folder, an 8 X 10, and wallet size photos. These photos can be added to your Photopass account at any Photopass location in any park. Click here to read more about Disney's Photopass service.

After your time with Cinderella, you wait a few more minutes for your party to be called. There are restrooms on this floor at the end of the room. Take advantage, as if you need to use the restroom after you are in the dining room, it is up another floor. But, the bathrooms are really cool, so use both!


Once your party has been called, you will be guided up the red carpeted castle like, spiral staircase, you will enter the dining room. Another cast member will guide you to your table. The dining room has tall ceilings complete with appropriate castle lighting and stained glass windows. The dining room has several levels to allow all guests to have a great view of. . . other guests.

Each child guest is given either a magic wand or sword for the wishing ceremony that happens at each meal. And soon enough the princesses begin to circulate throughout the dining room and come to each table.




The information about dining at the castle indicates princesses may vary. We got to meet Snow White, Princess Aurora (a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty), Princess Jasmine, and Belle.

Belle was in her "day clothes." If you want to dine and meet Belle in her yellow princess gown, she is in residence daily at Akershus in Norway in EPCOT. Click here to read about dining at Akershus.


We had a regal time dining at the Castle. It is one of those "Yes, we have done that" experiences. It is not one of our "we have to do that each time we go" experiences. The food is Ok, the theming excellent, service is fast and friendly. You come here to be in a castle and meet princesses, not for the food. And, there are other opportunities throughout Walt Disney World Resort to dine with and meet princesses. Click here to read about royal dining at 1900 Park Fair.
