    I was able to reserve a table at Cinderellas Royal Table at 8:30pm in the evening. Can you please guide me on what time I should check in and having this late reservation will all the characters still be there? What other festivities go on when dining ?

    Royal greetings, Stefanie!

    I hope you are ready for a feast fit for royalty when you dine at Cinderella's Royal Table on your upcoming visit to Magic Kingdom. I recently enjoyed a Fairytale meal with the princesses and loved every magical minute of my time in the castle! My princess friends and I arrived around 10 minutes before our reservation time, and we waited outside the castle about 5 to 10 minutes so no need to be too early. Once our name was called, we entered the Grand Hall.  We were greeted by Cinderella and had the opportunity to get her autograph and have a photo done by a Disney PhotoPass photographer. After our lovely meeting with Cinderella, we waited a few more minutes before being escorted up the spiral staircase to the stunning Royal Banquet Hall. I couldn't get enough of this amazing dining room with its brilliant stained-glass windows, intricate woodwork and the gorgeous dome ceiling! After we ordered our dinner, we were presented with our very own magic wands (swords are given to all the princes dining at the castle) that we waved them in the air like real Fairy Godmothers! While we dined, we were visited by four princesses each arriving in the Royal Banquet Hall in grand fashion! Our meal took a little over an hour so there was plenty of time for all the princesses to stop by our table for a meet and greet. And rest assured, all the princesses will still be there during your dining time. 

    One perk to dining late at Cinderella's Royal Table is the possibility to see the fireworks light up Fantasyland from the Royal Banquet Hall. It's a unique perspective that I think you'll enjoy experiencing if you happen to still be there!
