    The only time available for princess dining on Feb. the 19th is 9:30 pm. The park closes at 10:00. Do we only get a half an hour to eat. Can you ever get in for dining the day of if there is a cancellation? My girls are only 2 and 4 and that is so late

    Hi Rose!  I realize you might have already made your decision but did want you to get a response.

    When guests have late night dining reservations in the parks you will be guaranteed to enjoy your meal just as all the other guests would during the day.  The restaurants will not make dining times past when they feel they can offer a proper experience for the guests. You will not be compromised just because it is late and the parks may close during your meal.  When you finish you will note that the attractions will be closed and you will be expected to walk to the exits but other then that everything remains the same.

    Late dining is often the norm when at Disney. Reservations can be hard to get and sometimes you have to settle for times that normally wouldn't be conducive for the family. However, when that happens for us we simply plan the day with naps and late lunches so the kids will still be able to experience the magic such as Wishes and Illuminations.  Our "normal" schedule goes out the window and we learn to enjoy the Disney schedule.
