    We're taking our 4y/o daughter on her 1st Disney trip this Xmas- does anyone have any experience or recommendations about the "dining with the Princesses" options? Looks like they do breakfast / lunch / dinner events - which would be best bet

    Hi Tim,

    Our favorite princess dining experience is breakfast in Akershus at Epcot.  There are several different princesses available during the meal.  If your little girl is a huge Cinderella fan, you might want to try dinner at 1900 Park Fare.  All of the characters from the movie can be seen here, and they really put on quite a show.  Cinderella and her prince even dance for the guests.

    Now, here's what you probably don't want to hear.  Getting a reservation to dine with the princesses can be difficult.  Many guests book way in advance, so you may not have any luck securing a reservation at this late date.  Keep trying though - something may open up.  Sometimes guests book more than one restaurant on any given day just to secure dining.  Once they've solidified their plans they often cancel the one that they don't need.

    Hope this helps.  Good luck and have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
