    We are going Sunday to magic kingdom. We plan on watching the happily ever after show. I think that is at 8. If I book a reservation to cinderellas magic kingdom for 9 will that be enough time? Will the princesses still be there at that time?

    Hey there, hi there, Christine! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney.

    In just days, you'll embark on your magical adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth. How exciting, Christine! And since you plan on watching Happily Ever After (my all-time favorite nighttime spectacular) and then dining at Cinderella's Royal Table (the most beautiful restaurant in Walt Disney World Resort), it sounds like your planning is off to a practically perfect start. That sounds like the most magical way to top off the BEST. DAY. EVER! Now, let's get your loose planning ends tied up so you can sit back, relax and start your countdown to the fun!

    You are correct that Happily Ever After will begin promptly at 8:00 p.m. when you are visiting Magic Kingdom Park on November 12th. The show lasts 18 minutes, so it will wrap up by 8:20 p.m. If your dining reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table is at 9:00 p.m., that will give you plenty of time to navigate the crowd and get to dinner on time. Cinderella's Royal Table is right inside Cinderella Castle, so after the fireworks, you will be able to get to the restaurant's entrance at the back of the castle before you can even say bibbidi ... bobbidi ... boo!

    I think you will be happy to hear that on November 12th, Cinderella's Royal Table is open until 11:00 p.m., and the Princesses will be meeting with their Guests throughout dinner. If your dinner reservation is at 9:00 p.m., the Princesses will still visit with you for photos and autographs during your dinner. No worries! Since it's well before midnight, there is no risk of any of their carriages turning back into pumpkins.

    Christine, before you head up the staircase to the dining room, while you are meeting Cinderella in the Grand Hall, see if you can spot Jaq and Gus Gus! Hint: Look up!

    I hope this helps, Christine, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable time! Feel free to stop by any time with any questions you may have along your pixie-dusted journey.

    A dream is a wish your heart makes,
