    If we had 2:00 or 2:15 reservations at Cinderella's Royal Table, will we be done in time to see the beginning of the 3:00 parade?

    Hi Heather,

    You kinda, sorta could, but you'd be rushing your meal. 

    Most character meals are timed to last about an hour. Cinderella's Royal Table aims to be a bit more posh, with more relaxed service, so a typical meal there might take more like an hour and 15 minutes. 

    If you want to get done with the restaurant quickly, you could tell your server and they could speed up your service, but then you would run the risk of not getting quality time with all the princesses. 

    Also, it may take a few minutes of jockeying outside to get a good viewing spot for the parade. If you're traveling in mid-September, you might be able to get a decent view at the last minute, but this would be nearly impossible during the holidays. 

    In my opinion, if you want to see the 3:00 parade, you should not make CRT lunch reservations for later than 1:30.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have additional questions.
