    What options do I have regarding dining if I have a 5 year old daughter that is really into princesses? Which would be the best experience for her if she wants to be close to her favorite princesses Arial and can i celebrate her BD w the princesses?

    Hi Maha,

    There are several princess dining options available:
    • Cinderella's Royal Table is located in the castle at the Magic Kingdom.  Although, this is an extremely popular choice, it's also rather expensive.
    • 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian has a Cinderella dinner nightly.  This is a great option if your child loves Cinderella, but other princesses are not available.
    • Princess Storybook Breakfast at Akershus in Epcot's Norway Pavilion is my recommendation.  The food is good and the price much more reasonable.  Princesses who MAY appear: Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and Mulan. 
    At any of these character dining locations, you can request a small birthday cake or a mini princess jewelry box cake for a small fee.  These cakes can be requested upon arrival and are subject to availability.  You can also order a specialty cake by calling (407)827-2253.  I recommend ordering cakes with at least 72 hours advance notice.

    Your best bet for some one on one time with Ariel would be to head over to Ariel's Grotto in Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom.  The lines for meeting Ariel can get VERY long.  You may want to try visiting during parade times or late in the day.

    Hope this helps.  Happy birthday to your little princess!
