    We have a reservation at Cinderellas RT at 7:15 pm the end of June. I know they rope off the area and you can’t leave before fireworks. However, if we are done eating by 9 are we allowed to at least go outside to see them or must we stay inside the castle?

    Hi Maryrose,

    Dining at Cinderella's Royal Table is an experience steeped in fairy-tale charm and royal indulgence! As you step into Cinderella Castle, you'll find yourself transported to a place where dreams come true and magic is ever-present.

    One of the most magical experiences that comes from dining at this location, is meeting Cinderella herself. After your party is called, you’ll have the opportunity to meet Cinderella and pose for photos. From there you’ll be led up the beautiful spiral staircase and seated once your table is available. You’ll find yourself in a true storybook setting where medieval flags fly and stunning stained-glass windows overlook Fantasyland. 

    Given that your reservation is at 7:15 pm and Happily Ever After fireworks usually begin around 9:20 pm during the summer season, hurrying through your dinner would take away from the magical atmosphere. With an array of appetizers, a delicious main course, and the opportunity to meet Disney Princesses, you'll want to savor every moment of this royal experience. 

    It has been my experience that the area surrounding Cinderella Castle is roped off shortly before this amazing nighttime spectacular. It is recommended that if you wish to see the show you’ll need to depart the castle at least 20 minutes before showtime. 

    So, in theory, if all goes according to schedule, there's a possibility you "might" make it in time to witness the fireworks. However, my sincere recommendation is to prioritize fully immersing yourself in this amazing dining experience rather than rushing through it.
