    Hello! Our family of 4 (10y son &7y daughter) is so excited for our first family trip to WDW! We have an ADR at CRT at 8:25PM on 8/28th. How long should we budget to dine at CRT & still have time to find a good spot for Wishes at 10PM? Thank you!!

    Hey Patricia!

    Character dining experiences are something that really shouldn't be rushed. Therefore, I would suggest you allot at least an hour and a half to your meal at Cinderella's Royal Table. This will give all of the princesses plenty of time rotate through to your table. I realize this will make it a little tough to find a location to watch Wishes.

    You have a couple of options if you do want to get the best view possible of Wishes:
    1. You could leave Cinderella's Royal Table early risking the possibility of not meeting all the princesses
    2. You would keep an eye out for Advanced Dining Reservations which are earlier in the evening or possibly even breakfast instead of dinner.
    3. Here is an out of the box idea: Watch Wishes from BEHIND Cinderella Castle in the New Fantasyland section of the Magic Kingdom. You will basically be able to stand anywhere you want and the fireworks will completely surrounding you. This will be the most unique view of Wishes you will every experience.
    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any more questions about character dining or any other aspect of your Walt Disney World vacation please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a *MAGICAL* vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
