    We are visiting September 4-12, and have gone this same time in 2015 and 2016. The past two times, we haven't been able to walk through Cinderella's castle. Are you no longer allowed to do this? Or was it just because of construction in those years?

    Greetings Marissa!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question!

    Cinderella Castle is so iconic that I only feel like I am actually at the Walt Disney World Resort once I finally see it! Walking through the castle and crossing into Fantasyland to find Prince Charming Regal Carrousel is so exciting!

    Sometimes the passage will be closed, especially during stage shows that take place in front of the castle, and also when Cast Members start preparing fireworks shows and during the shows. I have usually been able to walk through early in the morning, late in the morning, early in the afternoon and late at night, especially during Extra Magic Hours.

    How about not only going through the castle but dining inside of it? Make reservations at Cinderella’s Royal Table and you will have the chance to enjoy a regal meal in the company of Disney Princesses inside this dreamy castle. Reservations are highly recommended and can be made up to 180 days in advance online, using the My Disney Experience mobile app or calling (407) 939-3463.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Marissa! Please stop by real soon if you have more questions!

    Best magical wishes,
