Last week I wrote about my favorite princess meal at the Walt Disney World resort (Akershus) but this one comes in at a very close second...

Cinderella’s Royal Table, located within the Magic Kingdom, is a true fairytale experience nestled within the iconic Cinderella Castle. Another plus that makes this dining experience such an amazing event for any pint-sized princess is the fact that the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is located directly across the hall from the entrance. Talk about fantasy come to life! This is it!!

Cinderella’s Royal Table (CRT) offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner and features interaction with Cinderella, Belle, Princess Aurora, and/or Snow White (characters can vary). All of the meals are fixed price and if you are using the Disney Dining Plan, be prepared to use TWO table service credits for this experience. Along with the meal, the price also includes tax, gratuity, and imaging package.
Upon entering the grand lobby, a photographer will be on hand to take your photo with your host, Cinderella. The imaging package will then be delivered to you during your meal and includes (4)4x6 and (1)6x8 of your group shot, (1)6x8 of Cinderella Castle, Cinderella-themed photo holder. (**TIP**If you have the Disney PhotoPass, make sure they add the image to your account as well. It’s free and will give you a higher quality photo for later use.) Additionally, the price includes a princess wand for girls and a sword for boys, ages 3-9.
Breakfast selections include such options as lobster and crab crepes, steak and eggs, cream cheese stuffed French toast, among others, and it’s all you care to eat. Children are treated to scrambled eggs, French toast sticks and a choice of sausage.
For the lunch menu you get a choice of one entrée which includes grilled swordfish, slow roasted pork loin, grilled chicken pasta and short ribs, among others. These selections follow an appetizer tasting plate known as “specialties of the castle.” Kid picks for lunch include a choice from each category (appetizer, entrée, dessert, and drink) and the entrée selection consists of cheese pizza and chicken nuggets. For lunch, children can also select from the “Kid’s Whole Meals” which then offer a vegetable/side with the meal instead of an appetizer. Examples include turkey pot pie, beef tenderloin or a roasted chicken leg. Adult desserts include the flourless chocolate cake, espresso cheesecake or seasonal no sugar added sorbet.
For the dinner experience, the appetizers are a selection rather than a tasting plate. The selections here include the castle salad, rock shrimp cocktail, or a cheese tasting. Entrées include similar selections from the lunch menu so no real big surprises here. There’s also one addition to the dessert menu which is the chef’s dessert trio. The children’s menu is identical as well. Please note that menu items are also subject to change.
Cinderella does her personal meet and greets upon your entrance into the lobby and does not reappear during your meal. Once upstairs in the Grand Ballroom, the remaining princesses are introduced one at a time (with approximately 5 minutes in between) by a royal guard and they begin making their way around to each table to greet all of the guests, sign autographs and take photos. Bring a camera as the PhotoPass photographer is only based in the lobby. All additional photos are you responsibility and since you get a lot of princess bang for your buck, a camera is a must!
