    Do you need to pay for park admission to dine at Chef Mickey's? Is Cinderella the only princess at Cinderella's Royal Table? Can you give me more info on Fantasmic Show - is it worth buying the VIP seating tickets?

    Welcome back Elizabeth! Thanks for stopping by with your questions.
    Chef Mickey’s is a great place. If you are considering a Character Dining Experience there for your family, I am sure you will have an amazing time. This restaurant is located at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, and Guests don’t need theme park tickets to access this happy place. As it is a very popular experience, advanced reservations are strongly recommended and can be made up to 180 days prior to your visit.
    Cinderella’s Royal Table is an enchanting experience at Magic Kingdom Park. While you dine, Cinderella and some of our favorite classic Disney Princesses will visit the place for photos and autographs. Character appearances are subject to change, but there will always be other princesses visiting Guests with Cinderella.
    Regarding Fantasmic! Dinner Package, it is worth it! My family loves it, and our favorite restaurant is Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano. You will have a delicious meal and guarantee a VIP seat for Fantasmic!. The reserved seating area for those with Package is front and center, you can have fabulous views of the show. Besides, you won’t need to be at the amphitheater too early for finding good seats.
    Hope this helps your planning. Please, come back to visit us soon if you have additional questions.
    Have a magical day!
