    Can you still eat at Cinderella's Royal table without being on a dining plan?

    Hi Aaron!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Can you imagine a more magical dining experience, than at Cinderella's Royal Table inside Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park with Cinderella herself and some of the other Disney Princesses?  As you enter the castle, there is the opportunity to have photos with Cinderella before you ascend the staircase to the banquet hall.  During your meal you will then enjoy meeting some of the other Disney Princesses who will visit your table for photos and autographs.  In my opinion, it's one of the best ways to meet several princesses without having to stand in a queue! It is not a requirement to have a Disney Dining Plan in order to dine here.  However, it is a highly popular location and reservations are strongly recommended, and when you make your booking you will see that this is one of the few magical restaurants that will require advance credit card payment.  Dining reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance, online, or by using your My Disney Experience account.  My top tip would be to make your reservation at exactly 180 days before your visit.   

    It's worth noting that if you were using a Disney Dining Plan, this location requires two Table-Service credits for all meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner.  You would still have to make a pre-payment to dine here, but your server would refund that amount back to your credit card if you were using your dining plan.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
