    Hi. We are having dinner at the castle on Jan 24 at 815 pm. I know you can check in 10 minutes beforehand but this area will be roped off way before then because of the fireworks so do we have to sit in the waiting area for an hour. Thanks

    Hi Troy, 

    How exciting that you were able to secure a coveted reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table! You are in for a real treat, as this Fairytale Dining experience is unforgettable. You are correct that the area directly in front of Cinderella Castle will be roped off prior to the Happily Ever After fireworks show. However, the entrance for Cinderella's Royal Table is actually located at the back of the castle. You will want to head towards Fantasyland. Once back there, as you approach the archways of Cinderella Castle, look to your left and you will find the podium to check-in for your Advanced Dining Reservation

    I hope this helps and that you have an amazing dinner together. Be sure to make time to watch the Happily Ever After fireworks on a different night of your vacation. It is, by far, one of my favorite shows at Walt Disney World and is not to be missed. 

    Wishing you magical memories,
