Fairytale Dining at Cinderella's Royal Table

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 at Cinderella’s Royal Table or do not have a dining plan, be prepared to pay in full at the time you book your reservation. Pricing as of this writing is:

Breakfast - adult $62.00 + tax and gratuity, child 3-9 years $37.00 + tax and gratuity
Lunch - adult $75.00 + tax and gratuity, child 3-9 years $45.00 +tax and gratuity
Dinner - adult $75.00 + tax and gratuity, child 3-9 years $45.00 + tax and gratuity

Prior to dining, Cinderella makes your acquaintance in the majestic Grand Hall, before you ascend a spiral staircase to the banquet hall above. A gilded elevator is also available to transport you to the festivities if needed.
Then, you dine in a storybook setting surrounded by soaring stone archways, majestic medieval flags and spectacular stained-glass windows overlooking Fantasyland. We were lucky enough to be seated next to a beautiful window and it truly was magical watching other Guests enjoy the magic of Disney below! During your time inside the castle, classic Disney Princesses make their way around to each table, stopping for photos, autographs and interacting with guests of all ages. Character appearances are subject to change, however when we dined at Cinderella’s Royal Table, Snow White, Ariel, Jasmine, and Aurora were all in attendance. They did not hesitate to stop for photos and chatter with my sister and I as we lived out our childhood dreams! 
Tiaras and glittering gowns are optional, although young Guests are encouraged to dress up for the occasion. A wishing star and wand were presented to all princesses in attendance. For each prince, an alternative gift was presented.
If you are not sure which meal of the day is best suited for your family, rest assured there is something for everyone and every palette at Cinderella’s Royal Table. 

For those early risers, as the sun begins to rise above Magic Kingdom, you’re invited to enjoy American favorites like stuffed French toast, steak and eggs, baked quiche, and pastries—all while sipping on your choice of juice, milk, coffee, or tea. If you have picky eaters in your family, breakfast may be a safe option to go with. 
We chose to enjoy breakfast at Cinderella’s Royal Table and were impressed by the quality and taste of our selections. I ordered the caramel apple stuffed French toast, while my sister enjoyed the baked quiche. I was pleasantly surprised to find that my thick and fluffy French toast was cooked all the way though and was not soggy one bit. The flavor of the quiche was fabulous and the never ending pastry selections were a great way to begin and end our meal. 

Lunch and Dinner
If you choose to dine later in the day, prepare yourself for an enchanted lunch or dinner as Cinderella’s Royal Chef begins your feast with assorted cured meats and cheeses. Soon after, it's on to an unforgettable main course with choices for adults ranging from roasted chicken breast and seared pork rib chop to chef’s fish of the day.
For your little ones, favorite options like beef tenderloin, chicken nuggets, or turkey pot pie await. And no matter the path your meal takes, be sure to polish off your dining experience with a scrumptious dessert.
If you are looking to sweep your princess off her feet or plan a special engagement moment, there are additional options that can be included with your dining experience at Cinderella’s Royal Table. Be sure to contact your favorite On The Road Travel agent for more information on these special enhancements. You can also connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Being a Boy Mom, I never could convince the rest of my family to experience Cinderella’s Royal Table. During a sister’s trip to Disney this past fall, I am so glad my sister, also a Boy Mom, and I were able to experience Cinderella’s Royal Table together! It truly was a magical moment we won’t forget!
