    First time in Disney for my 3 yr. old girl. What are the best times to try to get: Cinderella's Royal table (breakfast or lunch), Tomorrowland Dessert Party to see Wishes Fireworks, and Fantasmic dinner at the Brown Derby?

    Hi Jennifer!

    I'm assuming you mean the best time to get a reservation.  To get a reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table, you really need to make the reservation 180 days in advance.  If you make the reservation on-line, you can do it at 6 am 180 days in advance of when you want to dine there.  If you call (407) WDW-DINE, then you have to wait until 7am.  Thus I recommend making the reservation online.  Cinderella's Royal Table is one of the most popular, if not the most popular, restaurants at Walt Disney World.  Any time you can get will be a great time, though my favorite time is very early in the morning!

    It's a lot easier to get a reservation for the Fantasmic Dining Package at The Brown Derby.  That said, you might as well make it as far out in advance as possible too.  All of the dining times available will give you plenty of time to dine there before going to Fantasmic!  In fact, time times are usually "too early'" in my opinion, but remember that one of the purposes of the dining package is to fill the restaurants! 

    Disney doesn't always release availability for the Tomorrowland Dessert Party that far in advance.  Thus my only advice is to keep trying every couple of days once the Cast Members gives you a general idea of when reservations can be made for that.

    Good luck and write back if you have any more questions!
