    We will be cruising 4 nights on Disney Dream and then heading to WDW for 3 additional nights. Wondering how much you see and interact with the characters/princesses on the Cruise? Should we still make reservations for the Royal Table at WDW?

    Hi, Abigail!

    Congratulations on your surf and turf vacation -- a cruise aboard the Disney Dream combined with a few days at Walt Disney World sound divine!

    I personally think that you receive unprecedented attention and access to the characters while on a Disney Cruise than anywhere else. You see them more often with shorter lines, and you get to spend more time with them. Having said that, there really is nothing like having a meal at Cinderella Castle -- everyone needs to do it once in their life with or without kids. So, although you may get plenty of "princess time" in on the cruise, go ahead and book a table at Cinderella's Royal Table if you've never experienced that. (I always suggest breakfast since it's the least expensive, and you may can get in the Magic Kingdom before it even opens!)

    Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
