    Can you “rope drop” Cinderella’s royal table and get a table as a walk up first thing in the morning without a reservation?

    Hello there! Welcome to planDisney, Brittany! We are so glad you stopped by!

    Cinderella's Royal Table is one of the most dreamy dining experiences at Walt Disney World Resort. Just imagine yourself walking into Cinderella Castle to dine on cuisine fit for royalty inside as a guest in the majestic banquet hall. And of course, being the consummate hostess that she is, Cinderella herself might even make an appearance to check that all the Lords and Ladies are enjoying their feasts. Doesn't that sound enchanting, Brittany?

    Since this dining experience is famous for being so very special, it gets booked up very quickly, making it one of the trickiest Advanced Dining Reservations to snag at Walt Disney World. Based on your question, it seems as though there may not be any reservations available at this time for the day you plan to visit Magic Kingdom Park. But, all is not lost, Brittany! Cinderella's Royal Table does require a reservation, but at times they do have a walk-up list available via the My Disney Experience app. You will need to be in Magic Kingdom Park to join the list, but once you enter the park, you can log into your app, click on the search icon and search for "Cinderella's Royal Table." From there, if there is a message in orange that reads "Walk-up List is at capacity," that means that the restaurant is fully booked and is not accepting any walk-ins. If you don't see that message, click on "Join Walk-Up List," follow the prompts, and you will receive a notification when your table is ready.

    Now, I should tell you that there is very rarely any walk-up list availablity at Cinderella's Royal Table, so your best bet is to try to snag a reservation ahead of your visit. So, that brings me to my number one tip for anyone having trouble booking an Advanced Dining Reservation for their preferred restaurant. Guests are required to put down a credit card to hold any Advanced Dining Reservations. If the reservation is canceled with less than 24 hours' notice, there will be a fee of $10 per Guest charged to the credit card on file. Because of this, cancellations come through all the time! So, I always recommend keeping a close eye on your My Disney Experience app in the weeks and days leading up to your visit, and you just might see a reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table pop up! I've been able to get some really hard to come by reservations this way. All you need is faith, trust, and little pixie dust!

    Brittany, I do hope this has been helpful! Don't forget that the team here at planDisney is always here to help with any of your Walt Disney World vacation planning questions, so please don't hesitate to visit us again!

    Until next time,
