    We have Lunch reservations at Cinderella's royal table at 1:15 p.m. I'm worried Cinderella will not be there if the day parade is during that time. Does anyone know what time the parades are during the day? Thanks! We are going in February.

    Hi Amanda,

    It is possible to check on parade times before your visit to the Magic Kingdom.  Go to and then select "Magic Kingdom" under the "Parks and Tickets" tab.  Once that page opens, click on "Calendar" from the lower left side of the screen.  Set the calendar to the month you plan to visit first.  Then click on the date you plan to dine at Cinderella's Royal Table.  An agenda for the day's events (including parades) will appear before your eyes. 

    While there are often parades during the daytime, we typically see them around 3 pm.  That gives Cinderella plenty of time to visit you in the castle before heading out to greet her subjects during the parade.  I wouldn't be concerned that Cinderella will be there to greet you while you dine.  I fully expect that she'll be there.  You may also visit Disney's royal ladies at the Town Square Theater on Main Street U.S.A..  You can even pick up a Fast Pass to decrease the time you'll need to wait in line to meet them.

    Wishing you a vacation sprinkled with extra pixie dust and plenty of fabulous pictures with Cinderella!
