    My husband and I have planned a last minute trip to Disneyworld and would really like to take our daughter to the Cinderella dining hall. However since our trip is in less than a month everything appears to be booked. Any suggestions for a 2.5 year old?

    Hi Sarah,

    A last minute trip to Walt Disney World Resort sounds fabulous!  I understand wanting to dine at Cinderella's Royal Table, but given that your vacation is in less than a month, it may be difficult to secure a reservation.  First of all, don't give up.  Keep checking regularly, because it is getting close, guests may be confirming their schedules and could cancel a reservation, leaving a table free for you!  I would also recommend looking into Akershus Royal Banquet Hall at EPCOT in the Norway Pavilion.  Princess Storybook Dining offers the same feel as Cinderella's Royal Table, and several Disney Princesses are greeting guests during the dining experience.  My daughter also loves dining at Be Our Guest Restaurant in the New Fantasyland.  There are no princesses, however the Beast has been known to greet his guests during dinner and the castle is absolutely beautiful!  If you cannot secure a dinner reservation, this location is also a quick serve option for lunch.  

    If you daughter loves princesses, be sure to visit the New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom.  This area offers attractions such as Enchanted Tales with Belle, Under the Sea - Journey of the Little Mermaid, Ariel's Grotto and Princess Fairytale Hall.  All of the attractions are practically perfect for a princess loving toddler!  

    Please let me know if you have any other questions as you continue to plan your upcoming vacation.  I would be happy to help!
