    Hi, I am visiting WDW in Dec. and am looking to book dining at Cinderellas Royal Table. The time is 10:35pm on a MVMCM night, do characters still come out at that time? Or would an earlier 9:20 reservation be better to watch fireworks from inside?

    Hi, Shannon!

    Thanks for sending your Walt Disney World dining question to Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Christmas is my very favorite season at Walt Disney World, with Cinderella Castle looking even more breathtaking as she is decked out in extra winter sparkle. Even better? Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party: it is truly the merriest celebration!

    Now, dining IN Cinderella Castle at this time is even more magical; what a treat you have in store for you! When you book Cinderella's Royal Table at dinner, you'll note that the online description states that Disney Princesses visit for photos and autographs during your meal. With park hours extended that night for the special ticked event, you've secured one of those late-night dinners with Princesses at hand. How wonderful!

    You can't go wrong with dinner at either hour, Shannon. However, I personally prefer to see something as special as Holiday Wishes: Celebrate the Spirit of the Season from the outside of Cinderella Castle. I don't want to give you too many spoilers, but the transformation of the Castle throughout this spectacular event is jaw-dropping. If you weren't in the holiday spirit prior to viewing this, you certainly will be the moment this show begins. It's that beautiful!

    I wish you a joyous and magical holiday visit to Walt Disney World, Shannon!
