    Can you visit Cinderella's castle without dining there? Also what other princess dining experiences are there besides cinderella? Thanks.

    Hi Dewayne! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Cinderella Castle to me is so iconic. The great news is that even if you are not dining in the castle you will be able to walk through the castle. The main castle corridor contains beautiful murals made out of mosaic pieces containing gold, silver, and beautiful glass. There are times that for guest safety, you will not be able to walk through the castle (ex: stage shows and before and during the fireworks extravaganzas.)

    In Epcot in the World Showcase, Akershus Royal Banquet Hall offers a Princess Story Book Dining experience. You may meet Princesses such as Snow White, Belle, Princess Aurora, Belle, and Ariel. For this restaurant, I suggest breakfast as typical American Fare is served. If you are an adventurous eater or like to try new foods, then check out the lunch or dinner option where you can experience a taste of Norway.

    Another option is 1900 Park Fare in Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. This is a buffet style meal that has plenty of delicious choices! If you choose the Supercalifragilistic Breakfast you may meet characters such as Mary Poppins, Alice in Wonderland, and The Mad Hatter. If you choose Cinderella’s Happily Ever After Dinner; characters such as Cinderella, Prince Charming, Anastasia, Drizella, and Lady Tremaine, may be there for your experience!

    All characters are subject to change and not all of them may be at the meals. I also strongly recommend making advanced dining reservations. Also don’t forget about all of the wonderful character meet and greets located throughout the parks! Sometimes these are even more magical than dining with the characters!

    Have a magical vacation!
