    Hi Amy,

    It would be easier to advise you if I knew the ages/genders of your children, so I'll just tell you about my experiences with these three dining experiences. Cinderella's Royal Table and the Princess Storybook breakfast in the Norway pavilion at Epcot are fairly similar. At both meals there is a rotating list of 4 to 6 princesses that will come around to each table interacting with the guests, signing autographs, and posing for photos. Several of the same princesses appear at both locations. You are likely to see Belle, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty at both meals. That being said, when my daughters were in their serious princess phase (ages about 3 to 6), they would have gladly eaten at the same princess meal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day of the week.

    The Hoop Dee Revue is a very different experience. It is a rootin' tootin' good time Disney classic dinner show. You'll hear corny jokes and traditional American folk songs, all while eating chicken, ribs, and strawberry shortcake. It works for little kids and senior citizens. We first took our girls here when our twins were four. I've now seen it half a dozen times. It's so silly that you can't help leaving with a smile. It's a show that I would recommend for any Disney guest with children ages four and up. In my opinion, children much younger than that often have a difficult sitting long enough for the show.

    So, if you have elementary age kids or boys in your group, I would try to change on of your princess meals to the Hoop Dee Doo. If you have only preschool girls, I'd stick with the princesses.
