    Our 16 year-old princess has developmental disabilities and autism. She would like to dress in her Cinderella costume my wife made for her when she has dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table. Since she is older and adult-sized, is this allowed?

    Hi, George! Absolutely! A princess is a princess no matter what her age, and when having dinner at Cinderella Castle, one must dress the part. Right?

    The only advice I would give you and your wife is to make sure that you pack an extra change of clothes for her -- for either prior to the dinner or afterward if you're staying in the park. Even for the most ardent crown-wearers, I have seen huge and dramatic meltdowns when the princess didn't realize how hot or uncomfortable that ballgown can be while touring the rest of the Magic Kingdom.

    Please give Her Highness my best regards and tell her to have the time of her life! I hope you all have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
