    Which is better - breakfast or dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table? We are a mother, daughter (24) party of two who want to eat at the Castle! Any other meal recommendations? Thanks,

    Hey Kim!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I hope you continue to send us your great questions while planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.
    My family absolutely loves Cinderella’s Royal Table at Magic Kingdom Park. There is no “wrong choice” when it comes to Cinderella’s Royal Table. Both breakfast and dinner are fabulous!

    However, I’m going to give the slight edge to breakfast. My reasoning behind this is that if you time your Advance Dining Reservation correctly and make your reservation in advance of Park opening you get some pretty “sweet” benefits! My favorite one is the chance of getting those coveted Cinderella Castle pictures with little to no Guests around! Also, it gives you the opportunity to hop on some Attractions before Guests begin to fill the Parks, especially if you do not have FastPass+ for these Attractions. This is a great benefit since some of these Attractions are very popular and can normally have long wait times.

    Another one of my favorite dining experiences at Walt Disney World Resort takes place at California Grill in Disney’s Contemporary Resort. I think this would be a great dinner choice for you and your daughter. California Grill offers one of the best views of Cinderella Castle and of fireworks at Magic Kingdom Park. Time your reservation correctly and you could catch a glimpse of the fireworks spectacular (with sounds piped into the Restaurant) from your very own table or the Restaurant’s dedicated Observation Deck.

    Kim, I wish you an unforgettable vacation. Good luck getting the reservations of your choice!
