    If you had to choose b/t Cinderellas royal table or be our guest which one would it be? It's for my daughter 3rd bday dinner. Also I understand that characters are subject to availablity but there will always be a character at a character dining correct?

    Hi, Shirly!  If characters are a must have to help celebrate your little princess' third birthday, then definitely choose Cinderella's Royal Table.  It is a character meal, so while you can never be certain if you will see a specific character, you will definitely have characters visit your table during your meal.  At Cinderella's Royal Table, you are most likely to get a visit from some of your favorite princesses, including the hostess with the mostest, Cinderella herself.

    Be Our Guest is not a character dining experience, so you won't have the same type of character interaction.  At most dinner services, the Lord of the Castle, the Beast, may greet guests in the library of the castle as the guests are making their departure from dinner.  It's a quick photo opportunity, but he doesn't come table to table as you would find in an actual character dining experience.  

    I hope that helps you when you are making your decision.  I think if it was up to me, and the characters were a big part of the meal, I'd definitely do Cinderella's Royal Table.  If you get a chance to grab lunch at Be Our Guest, it's incredibly beautiful inside, and is definitely not to be missed, but for characters, Cinderella's Royal Table gets my nod.

    Happy birthday bash planning!
