    We have a CRT reservation for breakfast at 9:45. How early should we arrive? What should we expect upon arrival?

    Hi Jill!

    Breakfast in the castle is certainly a magical way to begin your day!

    You should arrive at the hostess podium about 10-15 minutes prior to your reservation. Once you check in, you will be led into the castle lobby where you will wait in line for your turn to get photos with Cinderella. These will be the photos that are included with your meal, and they will be delivered to you at your table before you've finished your meal.

    After your pictures have been taken, you will be escorted upstairs to the dining room. On the way to the stairs (or elevator) each little princess will receive a wand and young princes receive a sword. Wishing stars are also handed out which will be used for the "wishing ceremony" during your meal.

    Once seated at your table, your server will come around with drinks and platters of food. Breakfast in the castle is all you care to eat, and you may ask for more of anything you might want. Four or five princesses will come around to your table during your meal and will sign autographs and pose for pictures with your family. Please keep in mind that Cinderella usually doesn't walk around upstairs, the only time you will see her is in the lobby during pictures.

    At some point during your meal there is a little wishing ceremony that basically consists of making a wish on the wishing star that the children receive on their way upstairs.

    The dining room is beautiful - especially in the morning with the sun streaming through the stained glass windows, and it is a wonderful experience to dine in the castle.
