    I currently gave a reservation for Cinderella’s table at 7:30 at the end of March. If we wanted to eat either right before or right after the fireworks, what would be the best time to book and how easy is it to get in and out of the castle at those times?

    Hi Kristin, a royal welcome to planDisney!

    Cinderella's Royal Table is a truly magical dining experience where royal chefs serve enticing dishes as Disney Princesses offer regal greetings. Please know that the area around Cinderella Castle is roped off around 20 minutes before Happily Ever After begins, so if you choose to dine before the nighttime spectacular, you'll need to bear this in mind.

    Towards the end of March, I see that Happily Ever After begins at 8:30pm. As I would allow around an hour and a half for this magical dining experience, your 7:30pm reservation may cut things a little short. I would not like your experience to feel rushed. You can try to modify your reservation if there is availability between 6 and 6:30pm to ensure you can enjoy the music, projections on Main Street, U.S.A. and fireworks that embody this fabulous nighttime spectacular. Happily Ever After wows Guests for around 20 minutes. If you can wait til after 9pm to dine, you can ensure you are perched right in front of Cinderella Castle and hop into your reservation after the show. 

    I would like to have dinner before the show, but that's just my preference. Either way, you're in for a magical experience at Cinderella's Royal Table. If you're a chocolate lover, The Clock Strikes Twelve dessert option is a must-try!

    I hope this information helps you out today, Kristin. We're always here to help at planDisney should you need anything else. 

    Have a magical evening at Magic Kingdom Park!
