    We are going to DisneyWorld in June '08 and are having trouble deciding which princess character dining experience would be best - Cinderella's Castle or the Princess Storybook Dining in the Norway pavilion. Princess Aurora is a must ! Thanks. Stephanie

    I have been to both these meals several times. They are both great, but I prefer the Castle meal for the atmosphere alone. However, based on the timing of things, I don't think you're going to have much of a choice. The reservations for Cinderella's Royal Table become available 180 days in advance and all the seating for each day is typically sold out within about the first ten minutes of availability. (This is a very popular dining experience.) Since you are traveling in less than 180 days, the chances of a reservation being available for the Royal Table are very slim. That's OK because the Princess Storybook meal is lovely too.

    Aurora has been at most of the Princess meals I have had at both places. However, the princesses do rotate their appearances so there is no way to predict in advance whether she will be at your meal on any particular day. Aurora does make other appearances in the parks from time to time. I have also seen her at the character greeting spot in Toontown. To make sure you find Aurora, or any other character, during your trip, you should go to the guest relations office of any of the theme parks. Ask them to call the "character hotline" for you. They will be able to tell you where to find your favorite characters during the time of your travel.
