    I am bringing my 4 & 6yr old girls to Disney in June 2010 and want to book a character meal with Disney prinesses? Which meal and/or restaurant should I choose to avoid being rushed through? Like to get pics with the princesses.

    Hi Mike,

    Your daughters are going to love dining with Disney Royalty!  I recently took my three year old to a character dining experience, and her eyes lit up whenever she saw her favorite princesses -- it was a bit like introducing a teenage girl to her favorite Jonas Brother!

    Akershus at breakfast is my favorite Princess dining experience; however, these reservations can be difficult to come by, so be prepared to be flexible when making your reservations.  The great thing about Akershus is that it's less expensive than dining at Cinderella's Royal Table.  It's also easier to get a reservation!

    I didn't feel rushed at all when we were dining.  I think, for the most part, the characters do a great job of interacting with the children.  They'll take photos, sign autographs and engage in conversation.  Keep in mind that there are MANY guests who want their attention, so they can't stay at your table for long at any restaurant, but you will get one on one time with each character.

    Oh, and if your girls are simply in love with Cinderella, you might want to consider the Happily Ever After Dinner at 1900 Park Fare.  There are no other princesses there, but they do have several characters from Cinderella.  Cinderella and the Prince even dance.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
