    Hi, I have a bibbidi bobbidi boutique reservation for my daughter at 8:10AM and a reservation for my family of 5 at Cinderellas Royal Table at 8:15AM. I am trying to confirm if this is doable? Can you show up late to a Cinderellas Royal Table reservation?

    Hi there, Mark--thanks so much for stopping by planDisney! I see that you will be arriving at Walt Disney World Resort in just two days and have a schedule conflict with some royal arrangements, so let's get down to business. 

    For anyone who loves Disney Princesses, a trip to Magic Kingdom Park is an absolute must. There are many opportunities to meet these iconic heroines and other beloved Disney characters throughout the park. It is no easy feat to get reservations for both Cinderella's Royal Table and the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, so I commend you on your lightning-fast fingers!

    Unfortunately, the logistics of the overlapping reservations mean that like Tarzan choosing between his "Two Worlds", you will need to decide which booking to keep. An appointment at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique can take up to 90 minutes, depending on which package you select. Cast Members at Cinderella's Royal Table will usually give Guests a 15-minute grace period from the time of the reservation, but if you arrive later than that you most likely will not be seated. 

    Mark, if I were in your shoes (or glass slippers in this case), I would keep the booking at the Boutique, as those generally are harder to come by. If you cancel the breakfast reservation, you can continue looking for other available times at Cinderella's Royal Table for a later breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Guests' plans change regularly and you have a good chance of finding an open slot if you keep checking back. 

    Whichever option you decide to keep, make sure you are paying attention to the cancellation policies. For Cinderella's Royal Table, you need to cancel at least two hours before your reservation time, while cancellations for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique must be made at least 24 hours before the booking. 

    Let me share a couple of family favorites for princess-spotting that you can check out during your vacation: 
    • Just a few steps away from Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom is Princess Fairytale Hall. This is a wonderful meet-and-greet with Cinderella, Tiana, and friends and a perfect spot to get some special photos after a royal glow-up at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique!
    • In EPCOT, Akershus Royal Banquet Hall features Belle and other princesses while you enjoy a family-style Norwegian feast! Several princesses make appearances throughout World Showcase, too--check the schedule in your My Disney Experience app for times. 
    Mark, I wish your family safe travels and the most magical vacation! Thanks again for visiting planDisney and please reach out again if we can help with any other details for your stay. 

    Have Courage and Be Kind!
