    We are bringing our 2yr old, turns three in June. We made a reservation to have lunch with Cinderella at the castle. There was no cost, does she still get a meal? What is cost, or should we bring her food.

    Hear ye! Hear ye! Melanie, I am so elated you are able to accept an invitation to join Disney's most lovely nobility at Cinderella's Royal Table during your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort. This is a highly coveted reservation, with good reason.

    Princes and princesses ages two and younger should be included in the number of guests with your dining reservation, but there is no charge for their meal. There are several selections available for our youngest royals. If your child is like mine when they were little (and even now as teens), they may try picking some of the best selections you made for yourself right off your plate, but sharing is not required. They typically have the kid classics, like macaroni and cheese and chicken fingers, among others. Be sure to get the Build-Your-Own Cupcake for her. It is delicious and fun to add their artistic flair to a sweet treat. For you, if you love chocolate as much as I do, try The Clock Strikes Twelve. My kids might like to try things from my plate, but I guard every bite of this magical desert. 

    Cinderella's Royal Table is an experience starting with walking into Cinderella Castle. It is the most magical dinner in classic Disney style. Be sure to have your camera ready as you are called inside. The view of Fantasyland from the stained glass windows from INSIDE the castle is a wish your heart makes.

    You can take your princess to meet other beloved Disney characters at greetings throughout the park. Many of these can be seen on the My Disney Experience App Tip Board, like Meet Ariel at Her Grotto and Meet Mickey at Town Square Theater. You may also want to visit Pete's Silly Sideshow behind Big Top Souvenirs and near Dumbo. I think this is a hidden gem. Big Top Souvenirs is another. I think it has the best selection of shirts and plush toys for little ones, and is a little easier to navigate with them in tow than some of the larger shops.

    Please come back to planDisney with any additional questions as you plan your vacation to the Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    I hope all your princess wishes come true.
