    Hi! I'm planning to visit magic kingdom by October with my 4 y/o and 2y/o daughter . We want to have dinner at Cinderella restaurant. We try to book in our last trip but was impossible. Do you have any recommendation?

    Hi Vanessa,

    I can see why meeting Cinderella on your upcoming trip is a high priority. She is a pretty impressive lady. Who wouldn't want to get an autograph and picture with her? If you want to maximize your chance of making a dining reservation where she is scheduled to appear, I have a few suggestions:
    • Assuming you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, identify the date which is exactly 180 days prior to check-in. Call (407) WDW-DINE, or (407) 939-3463, on that specific morning to book a reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table. If you prefer, you could make dining reservations online instead.
    • Remember that Cinderella can also be found at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot and during dinner at 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort. Advance dining reservations are also recommended for these restaurants.
    • Be flexible with your dates and times. You are more likely to find a dining reservation with Cinderella if you can offer the reservation agent many possible times when you could dine with her.
    • If you can't get a dining reservation on the first try, don't give up! Because guests' plans change, it is worth checking back every now and again to see if a dining reservation has become available. There are often last minute cancellations so checking for new reservations while you are on vacation may yield good results.
    I'll keep my fingers crossed that you will be able to meet Cinderella in October.
