    We're coming to WDW for the first time August 21st- 27th. We're staying off-site, but would still like to book CInderella's Royal Table, but I am unsure as to when? Our kids are 6 and 4. Do I book a lunch or a dinner? Are any days better than others?

    Guest staying off site may make meal reservations up to 180 days in advance. Cinderella's Royal Table is one of the most popular dining experiences at Walt Disney World. I strongly suggest that you make reservations as close to that 180 day mark as possible. Reservations can be made by calling 407-WDW-DINE or via the Disney website at

    The Royal Table serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Of these, I personally prefer breakfast because it is a bit less expensive that the other meals, plus the stuffed French toast there is beyond delicious. However, all the meals there are quite good. I would simply choose the one that works best with your touring schedule. I don't think it makes any difference as to which day you go. With reservations so hard to come by, you may not have much of a choice. If you have your heart set on dining in the castle, then you should take whatever meal has availability during your trip.

    Good luck!
