    I guess I dropped the ball and didn't book reservations for Cinderella's Royal Table, have checked the online registration several times and can never find an opening. Are there any options now, can you walk in? Are there ever cancellations?

    Hi Christi! Don't fret about dropping the ball. Cinderella dropped her glass slipper, and everything worked out for her in the end, and I bet it will for you too if you're persistent. Because Cinderella's Royal Table has a cancellation policy with a credit card guarantee, many guests will cancel reservations a few days before, so last-minute openings do occur. Keep checking for available tables, even after you arrive at Walt Disney World. I've often had great luck scoring hard-to-get reservations by calling the Dining Reservation line from my resort room the night before. You can also try walking up, but I think you'll have a better chance at getting in the Castle by checking for reservations online or by telephone.

    Did you know that Cinderella's Royal Table offers dining with the princesses for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? If one meal is not available, you can always try another time of day. If you're unable to make a reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table, you can usually meet Cinderella at other spots too. She appears nightly with Prince Charming at the 1900 Park Fare buffet in the Grand Floridian. Also, she's often one of the princesses appearing at Akershus in Epcot -- my daughter and I saw her there during our princess breakfast this summer.
