    If you have dinner reservation at CRy without a meal Plan, are you able to just order dessert or are you expected to order a full meal?

    Hello, Mary! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Strategizing around my meals at the Walt Disney World Resort is one of my favorite parts of my vacation planning process. Thanks for allowing us to help you decide on such important matters! 

    Cinderella's Royal Table is one of the most strategic restaurants at Magic Kingdom Park, in my opinion. Guests can meet many princesses there and have a remarkable meal in one experience, so it's especially awesome for those visiting for a couple of days. 

    Because of its unique offering, meals there are considered fixed-price character dining experiences. While you will still be allowed to order a single dessert, you will still pay the full price of a meal with an appetizer, an entrée, and a dessert. The same will happen if you choose to have dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant, for example. 

    If you'd rather have a lighter dinner at a luxurious setting, California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort would be a fantastic choice, and it's only a few steps away from Magic Kingdom Park. Narcoossee's, at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, would also be an excellent choice!

    It has been a pleasure to help you here on the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Mary! Let us know if you have any other questions before your March vacation. We will be here for you! 

    May the magic be with you,
