Fairytale Dining at Cinderella's Royal Table

Image
Dining inside Cinderella’s Castle is a dream of all princesses, no matter the age. At the age of 42, this dream finally came true for me and my sister! Cinderella’s Royal Table is one of, if not the most popular table service dining location at Walt Disney World. Booking your reservation at the 180 day mark is crucial to guarantee your spot at a table inside Cinderella’s Castle.
Cinderella’s Royal Table is located in Fantasyland, inside the Magic Kingdom. When checking in for your reservation, simply enter the walkway which travels through Cinderella’s Castle. Here you will find the check in desk for Cinderella’s Royal Table. This is a character dining, fine/signature dining experience. On the Disney Dining Plan or the Deluxe Dining Plan, breakfast, lunch and dinner will cost you two table service credits. Routinely, the hours of operation for each meal are as follows:
Breakfast 8:00 am - 10:15 am Lunch 11:40 am - 2:50 pm Dinner 4:00 pm - 8:50 pm
If you are paying out of pocket for a meal…

Thinking About a Cruise?

Image
Are you thinking about a cruise?
Are you looking for something fun, entertaining, relaxing, with amazing food, or a desire to see multiple destinations?
Then cruising may be for you! The cruising industry is growing rapidly with more people cruising and new ships being built every year.
Some of the great reasons are stress free planning. You will see multiple ports without having to worry about hotels, food, or transportation. Another reason why cruising may be for you is the value. They are like an all inclusive vacation. A travel agent can help you with finding a great price and you pay for everything upfront so you can easily stick to a budget. You can even book your excursions before you depart and there are no hidden fees.  
There are activities for all ages. Shows, casinos, spas, youth programs, and pools. Some of the ships even have ice skating, rock climbing, go carts, ziplines, ropes courses, trampoline parks, and more!
Many people have the same questions.
Do I have to dress up? Th…

When is the Best Time to Travel to Disney World?

When is the best time to visit Disney World?
When is the best time to travel to Disney World? There are many things to consider when deciding the right time to take your trip so it can be difficult to answer that question. What is great for one family may not work for another. Ultimately, it may come down to what works for your family, and the great news is that Disney does a fantastic job of making sure there are magical moments any time of year. I always suggest people start with asking themselves a couple of questions –
Are you traveling with kids? If so, are you willing to take them out of school or should we work around their school schedule? This generally narrows it down quite a bit. Crowd levels are almost always lower when kids are in school and it isn’t around a holiday or long weekend. 
What type of weather would you prefer? Florida weather is generally hot, but there are times of the year where hot takes on a Whole. New. Meaning. So, if you want to avoid the brutal heat, I al…

Closing Down the Magic Kingdom

Image
Did you know Magic Kingdom does not shut down abruptly at closing time!?!? You will have about an hour or so to meander through the park. While the attractions will be closed as well as most of the restaurants, some of the shops and restaurants will remain open for up to an hour. Most of the park patrons will be rushing for the exit, but you do not have to follow suit! Below are some benefits to staying in the Magic Kingdom after closing… Take your time - Hanging out in Magic Kingdom after closing allows you time to enjoy the details as crowds dwindle. The parks are beautiful in the dark. You can enjoy the sounds of the background music without the wall-to-wall people. With less crowds, you can also appreciate the Imagineer’s attention to detail throughout the spaces of Seven Dwarfs Mine train, Gaston’s Tavern, the Enchanted Forest by Belle’s Cottage, and Tomorrowland. Keep in mind…you will be gently moved by cast members toward Main Street USA. A quick note…when you stay late at Magic…
