    I could only get an 8:00pm reservation for CRT, but Wishes is on at 8:00pm, and I desperately don't want to miss it. What's your best suggestion?

    Hello Kelly,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Cinderella’s Royal Table is my daughter’s favorite restaurant at the Walt Disney World Resort and Wishes Nighttime Spectacular is my personal favorite show.

    Wishes lasts for about 12 minutes and you have a 15 minute tolerance after your reservation time to show up at Cinderella’s Royal Table. You can try to make it, but you must know that it will be a close call, especially with all the other Guests around Cinderella Castle who will be dispersing after the fireworks show. You would really have to be close to castle entrance.

    You can also show up at the podium at the restaurant to talk to a Cast Member and check the possibility of dining at another time. Keep checking the My Disney Experience mobile app for new times, and also call (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463. 

    I really hope this helps you while planning. It is a very difficult decision, as I would also try to make it to both. You might have to prioritize, so think about which experience is more important to you.

    I hope you have an amazing visit.

    Best magical wishes,
