    Hi, is it better to book a meal at Cinderella’s royal table to meet the princesses versus waiting in line to meet them throughout the park?

    Hi Flor! Thanks so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    This is a matter of personal preference but I will let you know reservations fill up very quickly at Cinderella's Royal Table as it is a very popular restaurant. We have done both and our kiddos enjoyed both.

    Personally, if I had the opportunity to dine at Cinderella's Royal Table, I would jump at it. My husband and I enjoyed a meal or two with Cinderella and her friends even before we became parents. It's just so magical being inside Cinderella Castle. Once we became parents, it was even more wonderful to see Cinderella's Royal Table through our kiddos' eyes. It's more than just a meal. It's a true dining experience!

    All of the above being said, if reservations are booked or you just can't fit a meal at Cinderella's Royal Table into your itinerary, the Character Greetings with the Disney Princesses are amazing too! In many cases, the locations are themed to match their stories and depending on crowd levels, they may get to spend a bit more time with you than they do at Cinderella's Royal Table.

    Regardless of how you decide to visit the Disney Princesses, make sure you have an autograph book and camera ready! These are treasured memories you will want to capture and remember for years to come!

    I'm so excited for you! Please let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your vacation. Meeting the Disney Princesses is always a highlight for us and I'm so glad you are making it a priority for your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
