    Booked a last minute trip to Disney for Christmas. Was trying to book dining for Belle or Cinderella, but obviously there is no availability. Is there a good chance that one will open up? And if not, where is another great place to eat at Magic Kingdom?

    Hi Alison!

    A last minute trip to Walt Disney World Resort for Christmas sounds absolutely perfect in every way! Did you know there is another restaurant near Magic Kingdom Park that gives you the chance to dine with Cinderella and Prince Charming? It's true. In the evening, 1900 Park Fare on the ground floor of Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa hosts Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner. They offer a lovely buffet with food to please every palate. To get there, you can hop on the resort monorail or a small boat at the front of Magic Kingdom Park. You'll be there in just a few minutes. 

    Of course, there's always the possibility that a dining reservation may open up at Cinderella's Royal Table. I encourage you to check online or call (407) 939-3463 48 and 24 hours prior to the day you plan to visit Magic Kingdom Park. Guests' plans are changing all the time and, with a little pixie dust, you may just stumble upon an open reservation. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you'll be dining with Cinderella this December.

    Wishing you many magical memories,

    PS. Don't forget that you can find Belle at Enchanted Tales with Belle in Magic Kingdom Park. It's not a dining experience but it's a must-do for Belle fans.
