    What do i do with my 13 and 9 yo sons while my mom and I have my 6 yo daughter dining with the princesses?? We both want to watch her eyes light up!!! Do we take them????

    Hi Susan,

    I can remember when my daughters first dined with the princesses. Having your favorite princess take a picture with you is so magical! However, why not bring your sons with you to a princess meal? I know lots of other boys who dine at these restaurants. They even get a sword at Cinderella's Royal Table.

    One princess meal they may find funny is dinner at 1900 Park Fare. While Cinderella and Prince Charming are there, so is Lady Tremaine and the stepsisters. The two stepsister got into a brawl on the floor over a hairbrush the last time we dined here. It was absolutely delightful and not too girlie.

    You could also make them pick a treat that their sister may not necessary enjoy.

    As for leaving them alone, you could have them tour the park you are eating dinner in if your are comfortable with that. Your nine year old could go to a Kids Club but it ages out at 12. You have to do what is best for everyone.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
