    I am planning to come for my daughter's 4th birthday at the end of April. She is a big princess fan. I am trying to find options for her to meet the princesses or have some type of character dining experience. Please tell me the available options

    Royal greetings, Ameena! I'd like to welcome you to planDisney! We have spend many birthdays at the Walt Disney World Resort! No celebration is complete without a Disney Character Dining experience! There are Character Dining options available throughout the resort!

    Let's discuss the "royal treatment!" Cinderella's Royal Table, located in Cinderella Castle, at Magic Kingdom Park, is available to book for lunch and/or dinner! While the Disney Princesses have temporarily taken a step back from their daily royal hosting duties, Cinderella has still been known to make the occasional appearance. After all, both the castle and the restaurant carry her name! Her appearance cannot be promised during all lunch and dinner seatings, but there is always a chance for a royal encounter! The same can be said of our friend Beast! The master of the castle has been known to make his way through his own castle, also in Magic Kingdom Park, as Guests enjoy lunch and/or dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant!

    Mickey and his pals greet Guests during breakfast experiences at two Disney Resort Hotel locations! Disney's Contemporary Resort is the proud home of Chef Mickey's where every meal is a celebration! This is the perfect place for your little Disney Princess to see some of her favorite characters in a party-like setting! Another perfect option is breakfast with Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Daisy at Topolino's Terrace at Disney's newly-opened Riviera Resort! I love this Disney Dining experience for the food as well as the amazingly stylish outfits worn by the fabulous four! Another fun option is Garden Grill Restaurant at EPCOT! Here our mischievous friends Chip and Dale, along with some of their Disney pals, greet Guests for lunch and/or dinner!

    Ameena, the best way for your daughter to catch the eye and smile of a Disney princess is to watch and listen carefully for the Royal Princess Processional Cavalcade that makes its way through Magic Kingdom Park a few times per day. While specific times are not published, you might consider asking a friendly Cast Member at the park for an approximate time to start watching for the princesses to make their appearance!

    The Disney Character Dining options are in high demand! You are able (and strongly advised) to make your reservations 60-days prior to your vacation arrival date! It is also important to have a valid park admission ticket, as well as a park reservation if you plan on making a dining reservation at a Disney Dining location within one of the Disney Parks. This would include Cinderella's Royal Table, Be Our Guest Restaurant, and Garden Grill Restaurant!
