    We have a character meal reservation for 6/3 at the Royal Table at 2:00. How early do we need to arrive? I've heard that if you get there early enough, you might be able to get a window seat. But how early is early? And is a window seat better? Thanks!


    A window seat is quite magical because you can glimpse some of Fantasyland including Cinderella's Golden Carousel. However most of your attention will be inside the dining room as the characters circulate the tables. Cinderella's Royal Table Restaurant is majestic even without the view.

    However I always try to request a window seat and if it's a reasonable wait, it's worth it. I would arrive at 1:30 and politely state your request. If, the wait it too long, I would just take the first available table and enjoy your lunch.

    Have a wonderful time at the Fairytale Lunch!
