    We'll be at Disney World the end of Jan '23. Are there any character dining changes occurring in the next few months? We're hoping for Cinderella's Royal Table to have some more princesses.

    Hiya Elise, 

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney. Before you know it, you will be on your way to The World's Most Magical Celebration. Make sure you check out the newest attraction at EPCOT, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. This family thrill ride will have you joining Star-Lord, Gamora and the Guardians gang on a race through space to save the universe. It is an "out of this world" ride and has easily become our favorite attraction! 

    Who doesn't love character dining?  It is such a perfect way to enjoy a delicious meal while sitting for a little bit and recharging your batteries. Best of all,  you have the chance to spend time with your favorite Disney pals and princesses and capture that perfect family photo. If you are like me, you were probably thrilled to hear of the recent return of some of the remaining character dining experiences. This included the Best Friends Breakfast featuring Lilo & Stitch at 'Ohana and dinner with a number of the Disney Princesses at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall at EPCOT. 

    At this time, Cinderella waves and greets Guests from a short distance as they arrive for their dining experience. Occasionally one of her Princess friends joins her, but Cinderella and her best friends are not personally interacting with Guests. We have not received any information on when this may change however I suggest keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog. They will be sure to share information as soon as it is available. While I know you were hoping for a different answer, be sure to use your My Disney Experience mobile app while at the theme parks. You will be able to view which characters are currently greeting Guests, where you can go to see them and the approximate wait time. Additionally, if you do not mind spending time with some Disney friends that are a little more furry, you may want to check out The Crystal Palace. Not only will this buffet style restaurant fill the rumbly in your tumbly but also features Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and Eeyore. It is one of our favorites! 

    Hopefully this will help you find all of your favorite friends. If I can help with any additional planning questions, I hope you will stop back and see me
