    How long for the meal and experience should we plan if we make a breakfast reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table? How long for a dinner reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table?

    Hi Karen,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like we have royalty that will soon be dining with Cinderella and her princess friends in the castle!

    We have dined at Cinderella's Royal Table at various times during the day and, typically, it has taken about one hour and fifteen minutes for the dining experience. Of all of the character meals we have enjoyed, the princesses seem to move at a pretty brisk pace at this one. You will have time for interactions but there is not much lag time between princesses.

    If you have a pre-park opening breakfast reservation, be sure to snap a few quick photos on your way to the castle. If you have younger princesses or princes with you, I do hope you have considered Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. It is the place for the perfect princess or prince transformation! If you are like us, however, and on a budget, you might bring your royal attire from home. With a little glitter and tiaras, our princesses have been ready to dine with their princess friends in the castle.

    Also, be sure to consider Memory Maker. As long as you have an active Memory Maker by the time of your royal meal, your PhotoPass photos of the experience will be included. If you decide to do a dinner reservation, be careful about dinner times just before the Happily Ever After show. The crowds can get intense near the castle and you may have trouble actually getting to your reservation.

    Karen, I also suggest that you consider ordering from Disney Floral & Gifts. We have had princess balloons delivered in the past and our girls were just giddy! Since delivery options can change, call to speak with a dream maker to verify delivery information.

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
