    We have tickets to MVMCP for November. Can you make dinner reservations in the castle that day or do all table restaurants close after 4:00?

    Hi, Deanne! Oh, the holidays at the Magic Kingdom - it's the place I love to go to get a little of that Christmas spirit early. As if it weren't already one of the most magical places on earth, toss in a little garland and some twinkling lights - bam, ya got yourself some Christmas magic.

    Cinderella's Royal Table is one of the most popular dining experiences at Walt Disney World, even during special events like Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. While dining reservations haven't opened yet for your time frame, this is a restaurant that has always remained open throughout the parties. I know some people like to book their dining reservations around the time of the fireworks, because it's a unique experience to hear and feel the fireworks going off all around you - even if you don't get as good a view as you do from outside the castle.

    Another thing to keep in mind is that dinner at this restaurant can sometimes take more than an hour. By the time you visit with characters and enjoy the wonderful meal, you can "eat up" a pretty big chunk of party time. I know guests who like to dine as early as they can get a reservation so they have the rest of the evening to enjoy the holilday fun and festivities.

    Have the most royally magic evening, Deanne!
