    I am bringing my daughter to Disney and cannot get reservations to Akerhus Royal Dining Hall at the moment. Is there a wait list or anything along those lines? Also, is there any update as to when Cinderella’s Royal Castle will reopen for character dining?

    Hear ye, hear ye!

    Welcome, Frencesca, to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet. I am so glad you decided to include us in your magical plans, and it is an honour to be able to help you today. Even though I am all grown-up now, I still also enjoy meeting the characters so much on all of my Disney vacations, and I am glad you are looking into character dining options!

    Unfortunately, there is currently no waitlist for locations with no available reservations. The best option, in this case, would be to keep an eye on the reservation system, as reservations tend to open up in the weeks before your trip! Indeed, as Remy once said: "the only thing predictable about life is its unpredictability," and Guests often need to cancel their reservations at the last minute, so make sure to check the reservation system regularly! As for Cinderella's Royal Table, I would also recommend checking the Walt Disney World website and the Disney Parks Blog every so often, as that is where news relating to returning offerings are typically posted.

    In the meantime, if your daughter wants to meet the princesses, there are still so many ways to do so! My number one recommendation would be to download the My Disney Experience mobile app, as you will be able to see which princesses are doing meet and greets at the theme parks. Indeed, you can even write the name of the princess you are looking to meet in the search bar, and you will be able to see where and when their meet and greets are available.

    I hope this was helpful, Frencesca, and that you and your daughter will have a magic vacation worthy of royalty on your next visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your trip, please don't hesitate to reach back out. It is always an honour to help her royal highness!

    Have a magical day,
