    What is a good restaurant for character dining for a first time Disney vacationer? She is 4 years old and loves Ariel, Jasmine, Rapunzel, Cinderella, and Mulan.

    Hello, Gretchen!

    OK...when I read your question, I started jumping up and down for several reasons.  First, I am so excited for your little princess to experience Walt Disney World for the first time! Second, I know of the perfect and most MAGICAL place for you all to dine with many of your favorite Disney Princesses!

    My recommendation would most definitely be having a breakfast feast at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall located at the Norway Pavilion in Epcot.  This dining experience is absolutely unforgettable because your daughter will come face-to-face with Disney's most beloved princesses! I would suggest having breakfast because my picky five-year-old princess eats everything on her plate and goes back for more!  It is also much easier to book a reservation at this restaurant than at Cinderella's Royal Table in Magic Kingdom.

    Now, the Disney Princesses are subject to change at any time, but never fear!  You can always find some of your favorite princesses in the following World Showcase countries:

    * Aladdin and Jasmine in Morocco
    * Mulan in China

    NOTE: My family has eaten at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall several times, and Ariel and Cinderella have been there every time! 

    If you have other questions, please let us know!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
