    Hello, We will be at WDW in September this year. Our daughter will turn 3 in October of this year. Do you recommend Cinderella's Royal Table or is she too young? If she is too young what character things do you recommend? Thanks!

    Hi Harold,

    We took our older daughter to her first character breakfast for her third birthday. She's in college now, but she still remembers that meal, where she got to meet her idol, Mary Poppins. So your daughter may be the perfect age to meet the Disney royalty.

    If you are worried that it might be a little overwhelming for her, I'd suggest breakfast instead of lunch or dinner. What a great way to begin a Magic Kingdom day. One of the many things I like about Cinderella's Royal Table is that the food comes to your table. It makes the meal more leisurely than the buffets.

    Your daughter will get to meet Cinderella and have her picture made before you are seated, and then other princesses will visit the table. Plus, every young guest at the meal gets a special surprise gift.

    Despite what I just said about buffets being a little less leisurely, Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary Resort and Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom also are among my favorite character meals and something you might want to consider. Both are buffets.

    At Chef Mickey's, you get to meet the namesake Mouse himself, plus many of his pal, for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Crystal Palace features Winnie the Pooh and friends at breakfast, lunch or dinner..

    And if your daughter is a fan of Disney Jr., she might love the Disney Junior Play 'n Dine buffet at the breakfast or lunch at Hollywood & Vine in Hollywood Studios.

    I hope that helps. Please let me know if I can offer any other advice before your trip. Enjoy your time with your family!
