    Hi Michele,

    Thank you for coming to the Moms Panel :-)

    Sleeping Beauty (Aurora) can often be seen at Cinderella's Royal Table but it's not guaranteed that she'll be there when you visit. I would hate to see you book a reservation there that doesn't really suit your plans and then Aurora wasn't there. What I suggest is that you try and meet Aurora elsewhere, she can often be found in the Hall of Fame Tent in Magic Kingdom's Toontown. There is a Princess meet and greet area there and you can ask a Cast Member (Disney employee) when she'll be available to meet. Another place we've always found Aurora is in France in Epcot, we've seen her in the gardens but if it's raining she can be found inside. Again you can ask a Cast Member when and where she'll be appearing. Also in Epcot is the Norwegian restaurant Akershus, similar Princesses appear here as at the Royal Table, so although Aurora is not guaranteed it is a lot cheaper than the Castle and only requires 1 dining plan credit plus as it's not so popular it's easier to get a reservation that may fit your plans better.

    Have a great trip and don't forget your camera and autograph book when you meet Aurora,
