During our trip to Walt Disney World last October, one of the restaurants I absolutely refused to not try was Cinderella’s Royal Table Lunch at Magic Kingdom. I mean, guys – you eat inside a princesses castle! Yes, it totally brought out the little girl in me 🙂 It’s not just the amazing atmosphere, though – the food, the staff, meeting princesses and a little special activity make this a truly magical experience you just can’t miss!

To find the entrance to Cinderella’s Royal Table, you go to the BACK of the castle….
It’s right across the walkway from the carousel…
…don’t worry though, there’s plenty of signs once you’re at the back of the castle to find where to check in for your reservation.
Now, this is one of those reservations that you NEED to schedule 180 days in advance because it fills up super quickly. Another thing to note is that it’s a fixed price (then you get a few choices for each course), and you do have to pay when you make your reservation. It’s a bit pricey, but if you have a little princess in your family it’s a GREAT lunch option, especially since you get to meet several of the princesses!
I was so glad we had our awesome tour guide from Michael’s VIPs to take some photos of my mom and I – plus we made her get in one by herself as well! The meal starts with a ‘tasting plate’ of various meats and cheeses for the table to share, then you select which entree and dessert you each want. A non-alcoholic beverage (like soda, regular coffee, iced tea, hot cocoa, lemonade punch, apple juice or milk) is included with your meal. The food was fresh and delicious, and definitely filling!
Remember that special activity I mentioned? Don’t spoil the surprise for your littles, but….at the start they give you a wand (or sword) and a sparkly, little wishing star. At one point during the meal, music comes on and lights twinkle all around the room as everyone waves their wands/swords to the magic words (bippity boppity boo, of course) and make a wish on their own special star! Super cute, and you could tell all the kids absolutely loved it!
The staff were all dressed to match the theme, and everyone was super friendly, making sure our lunch experience was as magical as possible. I highly recommend making a reservation at Cinderella’s Royal Table Lunch for your next Walt Disney World vacation!
