    We are going to Disney World in September. My daughter will be 5 and I'm trying to decide between Cinderella's Grand Feast or Royal Table. What are the main differences between the two and which one will we possibly see the most characters/princesses?

    For your 5-year old princess, I would recommend Cinderella’s Royal Table. When you enter for breakfast or lunch, you will be introduced to Cinderella. Your photograph will be taken and this memorable moment will be captured for you in a keepsake photo presented to your family prior to departing the castle.

    Your princess will be given a souvenir wand which she will get to wave in royal fashion during a magical meal. Princesses visit the tables during your meal. Note that Cinderella is only seen in the lobby. Some of the other royal host and hostesses which may be present are Belle, Jasmine, Snow White, Aladdin, Fairy Godmother and Sleeping Beauty. Characters vary but we’ve always found a good selection of princesses when dining for breakfast or lunch.

    At Cinderella’s Happily Ever After dinner, you will likely see only Cinderella, Prince Charming, Lady Truman, Anastate and Drizzle. The step-mother and step-sisters can be a little unnerving to young children even though they go around doing funny antics. They play their roles well.
    Another difference is that the 1900 Park Fare meal at the Grand Floridian is a buffet, while your meal at Cinderella’s Royal Table is a meal offered off of a limited menu. There is something spectacular about eating in the castle.
