    Hi! I was wondering what do people suggest for a 9 year old little girl as far as a dining character restaurant? we will be there in September and Cinderella's Royal Table is booked? Thanks!!

    I'm sorry to hear that you weren't able to get in at Cinderella's Royal Table, Laura.  Rest assured, though, that there are plenty of other great choices!  Chef Mickey's is a very popular choice.  It is a buffet restaurant located in Disney's Contemporary Resort.  If the little girl in question has her heart set on meeting princesses, perhaps a meal at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall is in order.  In all honesty, I prefer that breakfast over the one in Cinderella Castle; it seems to have more of a laid back atmosphere, in my opinion.  My last suggestion is also an Epcot restaurant.  Garden Grill is a family favorite for us.  We love the unique spin (pun intended) of dining in a restaurant that actually rotates throughout the course of the meal.  So, too, are we partial to the family-style menu served there; did you know that some of the menu items are grown right there in The Land pavilion?  That's cool, right?  I bet your nine-year-old would think so, too.  Good luck with your decision!
