    My family has dinner reservations at Cinderella's Royal Table, but I thought it was a buffet. Now I see that ordering is done off an actual menu. What happens if my kids (14 and 17) don't like what's offered on the adult menu?

    Greetings, Jenny!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Dining at Cinderella's Royal Table is an experience straight out of our favorite fairytale! To be able to walk inside the enchanting Cinderella Castle and join royalty in the great banquet hall while the talented chef prepares your exquisite feast is so very magical. I will forever be in awe every time I dine there.

    You are correct about Cinderella's Royal Table not being a buffet. I have picky eaters of my own, and I know how important it is to appease their appetite! Restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort in my opinion are very understanding and try to be as accommodating as possible. My suggestion to you would be to speak to the Cast Member who is serving you for options. You can ask to order off the children's menu if that works better for your kids, but it will be at the discretion of the restaurant. Perhaps for your 17 year old, you could ask if they would allow you to pay for an adult size portion of the kids meal

    I understand that sometimes the clock strikes midnight and plans need to change. If you need to cancel your dining reservation, you can do so on your My Disney Experience account or call Disney Dining Reservations. There is a one day cancellation policy, so I would encourage you to do so beforehand if need be. Full price will be charged or forfeited if Guests cancel within one day or do not show up. I will say that although my children are quite picky eaters, they have truly enjoyed every minute of every meal we have had inside the majestic castle.

    Jenny, I hope you and your family enjoy making magical memories at Cinderella's Royal Table!
