    Traveling to WDW in June for my daughter's 5th Bday and we have the dining plan. Interested in taking her to Cinderella's Castle for princess dining on her actual birthday, but noticed that we'll have to use TWO meals at once to cover it. Is it worth it?

    At the risk of having my fellow Moms Panel Moms and Dad throw their Mickey ears at me, I have to tell you that I am not a huge fan of Cinderella's Royal Table.  While I believe every little girl should have the experience once, my girls only get it once.  It's very cool to eat in the Castle and see Cinderella, but the few times I have been there, the food is just okay and the character interaction was not the greatest.  I much prefer the princess meal at Restaurant Akershus in Norway at EPCOT.

    If you really want to do a meal at the Castle, consider paying cash for the breakfast, and then using your credits to enjoy a different dining experience.  Like I said, every little girl should have a chance to eat at the Castle at least once.  I don't know that I would do it for two meal credits though.
