    My husband & I are planning a trip in October with a 1yr old, 5yr old & 15yr old. The early 180 day reservation timeline is approaching. I just don't know when a good time to do the bibbidi bobbidi boutique for my 5yr old & eat at the Cinderell

    Hi Tara,

    Thanks for your great question and I have two schools of thought on this ... I happen to love booking a very early morning Advanced Dining Reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table, prior to Park opening. You'll be one of the very first guests to enter Magic Kingdom after producing your reservation confirmation number at the turnstiles, and therefore can immerse yourselves in the magic of Main Street U.S.A. with a gorgeous view of Cinderella Castle up ahead ... makes for "practically perfect" Disney photo memories with very few guests in the background. Though your princess will not have been magically transformed yet from her Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique experience, chances are several of the other little girls dining among you will not have been either since you're visiting the Royal Court before the boutique opens. 

    Another option is to book one of the first appointments of the day at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and allow for about 1.5 hours between the appointment and your dining reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table (to give cushion in the event the Fairy Godmothers in Training are running a bit behind!). You could dine for breakfast, lunch or dinner having already visited your Boutique appointment earlier in the day. Your princess can feel like true royalty throughout her entire magical day! I'd also check out the menus, found on the below link, to see which meal appeals to your family best. 

    To save on travel time, I'd try to book your princess' transformation at the Magic Kingdom location. You are seeking two of the most coveted reservations, so I'm glad to hear you're calling exactly at your 180 day mark! I'd suggest booking your Cinderella's Royal Table reservation online at 6am EST on this date. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique can be booked by phone at 407-WDW-STYLE.

    Wishing you MUCH PIXIE DUST, Tara!
