    DD loves Cinderella. We are paying for all meals out of pocket . Thinking of doing HEA bc I've heard there is more interaction with Cinderella than at CRT,but CRT includes photo. Which do you think is better deal if Cindy only princess she HAS to see?

    Hi Chris! Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel with your question.  I'm certain your daughter is going to love dining with Cinderella!  I think you are going to have to weigh a few things in order to make a decision that works best for you.  I think every little girl who adores the Princesses,  would love to eat inside that Magical Castle at the end of Main Street USA.  That may be enough of a selling point for your daughter?  It is a bit more expensive that Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner at 1900 Park Fare.  It does also include that photo.  IF dining in the Castle is not a "must do" for your daughter, then I might sway you towards Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner over at the Grand Floridian.  In this digital age, I would imagine you could get your own great picture with Cinderella.  Although dining in the Castle feels quite special, I would agree that the character interaction at 1900 Park Fare is extra special.  With Lady Tremaine and the Stepsisters on hand,  it is downright funny and entertaining.  In my experience, I have also found the interaction here to be a bit longer and more special.  In addition to stopping at your table, some characters may also be in the lobby for photos.  

    I hope this helps, Chris!

    I wish you a MAGICAL vacation!
