Disney World is without a doubt the most magical place on earth. Your Disney vacation can be even more memorable if you take part in one these fabulous opportunities to dine with Disney Royalty! Disney princess character dining should be a “must-do” for any Princess loving girl or boy. Princess Dining is available at The Magic Kingdom, Epcot & The Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
Let’s take a look at a few ways to dine with the princesses!
Cinderella’s Royal Table:
The most popular of all three is Cinderella’s Royal Table, located inside of Cinderella’s Castle in The Magic Kingdom. This restaurant books up fast and we recommend making reservations as far in advance as possible.
In fact, we have one tip that can help you get a reservation there. 180 days before your vacation starts, you can book reservations. However, you can book for your entire vacation at that time. Try and book Cinderella’s Royal Table as close as you can to the end of your vacation. This could be 187 or 188 days out if you have a long vacation! This will maximize your chances of getting this reservation! For more details on booking Disney dining reservations, check out our page on Disney Dining.
Dining Options at Cinderella’s Royal Table include: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.
Cinderella will meet each guest in the Grand Hall prior to dinner for photos. Then you will ascend up the spiral stairs to the spectacular dining room overlooking Fantasyland! As you enjoy family style dining the Disney Princesses will make their way through the dining hall to meet all the guests.
Prices typically range from: $30-$60 per adult. Cinderella’s Royal Table does require two Disney Dining credits. Generally the food here is typical Disney food. It’s not in the upper echelon of Disney restaurants, but it’s pretty good. The experience is what makes this place special.
The price also includes a photo package. A souvenir picture will be taken of your party in the restaurant lobby.
Akershus Storybook Dining:
Akershus is another great option for Princess Dining located in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot. This is a favorite of many because it is easier to get a reservation and only take one Disney Dining credit.
Dining options at Akershus Storybook Dining include: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.
Belle greets each guest prior to dinner for photos. As you enjoy family style dining the Disney Princesses make their way through the dining hall to meet each table.
Prices typically range from: $30-$60 per adult. Akershus Storybook Dining is currently one Disney Dining credit. The food here is rather unique. First you will have a buffet. This buffet has unique cheeses and meats that can be rather interesting. Then your main course comes, and it’s a Norwegian fare. It seems that most people have rather mixed opinions on the food at Akershus. I personally find it interesting and unique. Some don’t like it at all. Like the Royal Castle, it’s about the experience.
The price includes a photo package. A souvenir picture will be taken of your party in the restaurant lobby.
