    Next one: We can schedule our character dinners starting on Dec. 6. We know our 7 yr old daughter will love dining at Cinderella's castle and that'll be the first thing we schedule, but when? First night? Last night? 12:01 a.m. on the 6th to reserve?

    Hi Lisa, 

    Cinderella's Royal Table is such a wonderfully, enchanting experience. My 7 year old little girl absolutely loves dining there! Yes, you'll want to book that first when making your Advanced Dining Reservations.
    Personally, I think it would be a wonderful "finale" to your Disney vacation. You could book a surprise appointment for her at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique where she could be transformed into a Princess. To save money, you can have her bring one of her favorite Princess dresses from home and reserve the Crown package which includes hair, nails and make-up. Book that for approximately 2 hours prior to your dinner reservation and be sure to do it at the Magic Kingdom location. Then, she can dine with royalty in Cinderella Castle, all decked out like a Princess too. You can end your vacation on a magical note by watching Wishes together in the Magic Kingdom that evening.  

    You can begin making Advanced Dining Reservations online HERE beginning at 6:00am EST. The phone lines open at 7:00am EST, so you get an hour jump start by booking online.

    Have a wonderful vacation,
