    My family and I will be visiting Disney for the very first time. I have a dining plan and need some suggestions on places to dine. My daughter loves Cinderella and Belle. I would greatly greatly appreciate some ideas.

    Hi Brittany,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like you have a princess that is ready to join her friends at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Our two favorite Character Meals with Cinderella are Cinderella's Royal Table and 1900 Park Fare. When my girls' first visited Cinderella's Royal Table, we were on a serious budget AND I had mistakenly not booked a reservation 180 days in advance. I decided that I would send our girls with my cousin and her daughter to dine in the castle. Luckily I managed to secure a reservation after stalking the reservation system for weeks. They managed to get a window table and were just thrilled.

    By far the most fun we have with Cinderella is at Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner at 1900 Park Fare. The step-sisters are just fantastically awful while the wicked step-mother scares even the best of us. During our first visit, one of our girls lost the words to speak when Prince Charming danced with her and our other daughter was beside herself when the wicked step-mother grabbed her hand to dance.

    Although Belle might make an appearance at Cinderella's Royal Table, you can also try Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot. Characters are subject to change, but Akershus is a good value because it only requires one Table-Service Meal credit on the dining plan. 

    Rapunzel may soon be at Trattoria al Forno as of April 2, 2017. Also, try Chef Mickey's. Every princess must meet Mickey and Minnie Mouse! 

    Happy Planning!
