    How long should I plan on our lunch at Cinderella's Royal Table taking? I made it for 2:30 without realizing that the parade my daughter is dying to see (the one with Anna and Elsa, of course!) starts at 3:00. #mommyfail :)

    Howdy Amanda! No worries, you have come to the right place. Together we can figure out some options to make your daughter's trip to Walt Disney World the most magical ever.

    Typically, you should allow at least 1 1/2 hours for any character dining experience. This gives you plenty of time to finish your meal and for all the characters to cycle around. If you aren't interested in visiting all the characters you could leave before they have cycled through. However, the experience will still take 45 - 60 minutes.

    Here are some suggestion to possibly have the best of both worlds:
    • Contact Disney Dining at (407) 939-1947 to see modify your Cinderella's Royal Table arrival time.
    • Keep your existing reservation and come back to the Magic Kingdom on a different day for the parade.
    • Check out one of the other princess dining experiences such as Princess Storybook Dining in Epcot or the royal character meals at 1900 Park Fare or Garden View Tea Room at the Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any other questions please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a *MAGICAL* vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
