    Will Character dining open up at the Royal Table in Magic Kingdom by November, 2022? Where else is best place to see princesses in Magic Kingdom and Epcot? Does the Crystal Palace have character dining now?

    Hey Howdy Hey Maryann and welcome to planDisney!

    As a Girldad of 3, a trip to Walt Disney World Resort and princesses go hand in hand. My girls are always up for a meet and greet for their favorite princesses but ever since COVID-19 restrictions have lifted, these experiences have been a little different than they have been in the past. Thank you so much for your questions regarding meeting the princesses. Let's go over some of the details and get you the best options for meeting them!

    As of this writing, Cinderella Royal Table will have a special meet-and-greet with Cinderella before being seated, but princesses are not currently circulating for this experience. You will still be able to dine in Cinderella Castle for a truly unique and noble experience. I would make sure to keep up with the latest information which will be updated on the Walt Disney World site as well as on Disney Parks Blog

    Did you know there is a landing page on the Walt Disney World site specifically for princesses? This super helpful site is a one-stop shop for all things princesses. You can see where to meet them and which princesses you will have a chance to meet in those particular locations. Our favorite place to visit the princesses in Magic Kingdom would have to be Princess Fairytale Hall. There you will have the opportunity to meet up with 4 princesses with 2 different experiences. You can Meet Cinderella and a visiting princess as well as Princess Tiana and a visiting princess in this one location. You can access these 2 experiences by making your Lightning Lane entrance selections or with traditional stand-by lines. 

    There are many places throughout EPCOT to meet princesses. Our favorite spot would have to be at Royal Sommerhus to meet Anna and Elsa. This experience is available through stand-by lines only so make sure to get there early for your chance to meet Anna and Elsa! This experience also pairs nicely with Frozen Ever After close by. You can meet Anna and Elsa as well as take a ride through Arendelle to relive your favorite moments and songs from Frozen! 

    Back in Magic Kingdom, we were all so excited to finally get word on the return of The Crystal Palace as well as the return of characters for this experience. At this time, characters are set to return to this elegant experience on September 20th. For both this experience and Cinderella Royal Table dining reservations open up for your trip 60-days from your date of travel starting at 6:00 a.m. Be sure to make it online early to get your reservations for these dining experiences as they can be tough to get! 

    I hope I was able to give you some more information to help you plan your princess experience for your trip in November. Please feel free to reach back out and let us know if you have any further questions, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
