    Help moms! Can't decide between CRT or Calif Grill. Booking ADRs soon. Traveling with DH, DS6 and DS2. Have lots of character dinings planned, including breakfast at CP, but this one is mainly for me. Love idea of castle but CG food sounds so good. Thanks!

    Hi Allison!

    If this is indeed for you and not for the children then definitely go with the California Grill on top of the Contemporary.  The food there is fabulous, and the views are great!  I can't say that about the food at Cinderella's Royal Table; guests usually go there for the atmosphere or the chance to interact with Disney Princesses.  Since you already have a lot of character dining meals planned, go with something for you and your husband! 

    The California Grill is definitely a "must do".  It's even better if you can time it so you are there during the Wishes fireworks show in the Magic Kingdom.  They have a private balcony if you don't want to watch the show from your table.  If you can't be there during the fireworks, but still want to see them (for example, you can only get a reservation for a time earlier in the night), you can just show your receipt and head up to the private balcony!

    Good luck with your decision and write back with more questions!
