    Hi! We are coming to Disney as a first time trip as a family. My daughters are 3 and 1 and my older one is very into the princesses. Been trying to get a reservation for any meal in Cinderella's castle without success! Is a reservation a must?

    Hi Kristin!

    First timer! I think that its great that you have planned a visit to the Walt Disney World Resorts! I too have a 3 year old "princess in the making" and know how important it is to experience the fairy tale with them. I am not going to lie, Cinderella's Royal Table is amazing! However, I can tell you that your daughter will not know the difference between that princess character dining and the others that are available (and are just as fabulous!). You can also dine with the princesses in 1900 Park Fare's Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner, in the Grand Floridian Resort and Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot. 

    Keep in mind that you do not have to reserve a character dining in order to meet the princesses. They can also be found throughout the parks! At the Magic Kingdom. Merida can be found in Fairytale Garden, Tiana can be found in Liberty Square, and more princesses can be found at Town Square Theater! For more information on all the characters your family can meet and greet, check out this link: Character Experiences.

    If I can assist you with any other planning question, please feel free to send them to me!

    Thank you for submitting your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
