    I finally got my family and I a reservation at Cinderella's castle. The reservation time is for 9:20 p.m. and they close at 10. My concern is what am I getting out of this expensive dinner if they close so early? Will the princesses still be there?

    Hi Ashley!  Congratulations on your dining spot at Cinderella's Royal Table. It continues to be one of the most sought after spots on property.

    Your reservation for 9:20 will actually be a good one if the park is closing at 10pm that night. As long as the kids are awake and hungry this is perfect as you will be able to enjoy the attractions all evening before you head to the castle for your late dinner. When you arrive you will have the exact same wonderful experience as all guests at any other time of the day. You will be greeted by and have photo opportunities of some special princesses and guests and will not be rushed in any way. Just because the park "closes" at 10pm simply means that the attractions will stop for the night and head to bed but the guests will still be allowed to finish their dining in the restaurants or do their last minute shopping for an hour after the closing time.

    Buses will remain going to and from the park to the resorts for at least an hour after park closing or until all guests have safely made it back to their rooms in the resorts.

    Enjoy this very special experience. I am sure the princesses and princes in your family will love every minute of the evening!
