    We are going to WDW for the first time this November with our 4 year old daughter. We would like it to be magical and have breakfast/lunch with the princesses. Which one has the most interaction for an excited little girl?

    How exciting for your little girl - and for you - that you are making your first trip together!  I hope it is one of many!  Walt Disney World, as I'm sure you can guess, is our favorite family destination.

    There are two princess meal options for you available at breakfast and lunch.  The first one is Cinderella's Royal Table at the Magic Kingdom, and the meal is actually inside Cinderella Castle, which makes the experience that much more magical for children and adults alike.  The food here, in my opinion, is good, not great, but it's more about the atmosphere and the characters.  I think every little girl should have a chance to eat here once.

    The other option for a princess meal is the Storybook Meal at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Norway at EPCOT.  The breakfast is served family style, and is good, traditional breakfast fare.  Lunch is a combination of a cold buffet, featuring cold cuts, cheeses, and salads; and then you choose your entree from the menu.  I enjoy this meal much more, and think the princess interaction is wonderful!  On a visit with my eight year old daughter, Belle spent quite a few minutes talking to her about her favorite books, and we also enjoyed seeing some of the princesses we don't often see while we are wandering the theme parks.  Princesses here are on a rotation, so if your heart is set on seeing Cinderella, your best bet is Cinderella's Royal Table or Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner at 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian.  She does appear at Akershus, but not with the daily consistency that she does at the other two locations.

    At 1900 Park Fare, Cinderella appears at dinner with her stepsisters, Prince Charming, and her stepmother. 

    Have a great vacation!
