    Hi, planning our first family trip to Disney and I'd love to be able to dine at Cinderella castle during our trip. I wonder what time is best to book a table to still be inside the castle to see the fireworks?

    Hi there, Lynsey! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We appreciate you taking the time to stop back by and ask your Walt Disney World Resort vacation question!

    There is nothing quite as iconic at Walt Disney World Resort as Cinderella's Castle! This enchanting icon greets every single Guest that makes their way into the Magic Kingdom and invites them to experience a day of magic, fantasy, and family fun!

    Guests that are looking to get experience even more magic can book a dining reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table and enjoy a meal right inside Cinderella's Castle! You and your family will be invited to enjoy dinner inside the majestic, royal dining room and mingle with some of the classic Disney Princesses. You will also be in a prime position to enjoy the nighttime spectacular, Happily Ever After!

    If you would like to do this, I would recommend making dining reservations around 8:45 pm for the 9:15 pm show. This way, you and your family will have time to order your food, meet with the Disney Princesses, and potentially receive your meal prior to the beginning of the show. Also, if you arrive a bit early, I would highly suggest requesting a table located near the windows! By doing this, you and your family can take in the perfect view of Happily Ever After right from your table!

    I hope this information will assist you in planning a practically perfect evening for your family at Walt Disney World Resort!
