Ever since I was little it was my dream to eat in the Castle with Cinderella, and that dream finally came true!
My first morning in the Magic Kingdom after ten years was truly magical. After watching the morning show and going on a few rides it wasn’t long until our reservation for Cinderella’s Royal Table. I couldn’t believe it, what I once thought was going to be only a dream was about to happen. You line up and wait to be called for your reservation under the Castle, (you have to wait until all your party arrives until you can go up the staircase). You are then greeted by Cinderella as you enter, and you can only imagine my reaction – instant tears. She was perfect and the experience is something I’ll never forget. She was so kind and knew I was a big fan and let me have as much time with her as possible with, the longest hug and told me I didn’t have to let go until I was ready to. The characters made this experience extra magical. The PhotoPass Photographers are there waiting to capture those magical moments and to scan your Magic Band, and I was so happy with the result. She loved my outfit and I had GusGus with me of course!
It was then time to head upstairs to our table and it was beautiful. You can peer down from the balcony onto Cinderella meeting her guests. You feel like you’re in a real Castle – truly enchanting!
We got lucky as we had Jasmine, Ariel, Snow White and Aurora and those were all the ones we wanted to meet too! They come round to your table during your meal. They are very efficient but spend enough time with you to make it special. You don’t feel rushed and they make sure they see everyone on your table.
You get given an adorable little wishing star with a wand, and the guys get swords. It’s adorable and a nice little added keepsake to remember the experience by.
The food is quite fancy so if you’re a bit of a fussy eater like me, don’t be afraid to ask the waiter for plain food that’s not on the menu. One thing that impressed me at Walt Disney World is that they will cater for anyone.
The desert looked amazing. Such attention to detail – a bit like at Auberge De Cendrillon.
When you’re booking your dining reservations, I encourage you to make sure you get this one booked in. It was quite a hard one to get and I feel very lucky that it turned out okay and we made it happen. It’s not one to be missed. You can’t eat in a Castle every day! One tip I would suggest is bring your own camera with you, the PhotoPass Photographer is only downstairs with Cinderella.
If I ever get a chance to go back to Walt Disney World I would book this again in a heartbeat.
