    We're celebrating my 2yr old daughter's birthday this December but have reserved our trip last minute. Do you have any tips/tricks to get a reservation at Cinderella's Castle? If that's impossible, what other goods ways are there to meet Cinderella?

    Hello Katherine!

    A very happy birthday is in order for your princess! How wonderful to be celebrating in Walt Disney World. It is not impossible to obtain a last minute advance dining reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table. I myself have been lucky in the past! It'll take some patience in the way of checking online and/or calling each day.

    There's no guarantees so it's best to have a back up plan. I would highly suggest Cinderella's Happily Ever After dinner at 1900 Park Fare. This dining location is located at Disney's flagship resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. It is a hoot to meet Cinderella, Prince Charming and her charming step sisters ... loads of entertainment for all ages!

    Also consider Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot. Your daughter will love meeting several Disney Princesses, but keep in mind, theme park admission will be required.

    Lastly, you can meet Cinderella at Princess Fairytale Hall in Magic Kingdom and even obtain a FastPass+ pre-selected time to limit your wait!

    I would suggest purchasing a photo mat from a local craft store ahead of your trip. You can ask Cinderella to sign the photo mat to commemorate her special birthday. It will become a cherished memory! 

    My space is limited, Katherine, but I'm happy to discuss any of the above options in more detail. Feel free to write me back with follow up questions!

    Best wishes for a magically happy birthday trip!
