Cinderella’s Royal Table Perks
Dining among Disney royalty isn’t cheap, but it does come with perks that help offset the cost.
Perk #1: Cinderella’s Royal Table Characters
Your royal feast begins with, what else? A photo op with Cinderella herself! You’ll find her in the first-floor foyer waiting to greet her guests. As a gracious hostess should.
Then, you’ll ascend the spiral staircase and find your table in the grand banquet hall. When the trumpet sounds, your magical meet-and-greets will begin.
Cinderella has chosen the guest list (her name is on the castle after all) and invited her fellow Disney Princesses: Ariel, Snow White, Jasmine, and Aurora.
During your meal, the princesses will visit your table and pose for photographs. They may even give you an autograph! Make sure you have your camera, autograph book, and pen (very important!) in hand, so you don’t miss out.
Note: At the time of publishing, character dining is still unavailable at Cinderella’s Royal Table due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Perk #2: Decor Like Only Disney Can Do
No one does details like Disney and this castle is full of ’em.
Cinderella’s Royal Table is big on medieval vibes. Tapestries and coats of arms hang on the walls. Topiaries are blooming with roses.
Admire the stained glass windows as you climb the spiral staircase to the second floor.
In the dining room, the high ceilings are adorned with flags and the windows are accented with more stained glass.
Everything from the elegant archways to the antique-looking lighting fixtures is designed to make you feel like you’ve left the familiar atmosphere of a theme park and entered another realm. It feels good to be royal, doesn’t it?
Perk #3: See Magic Kingdom From A Different View
It all comes down to location, location, location. And this restaurant is located in an authentic Disney weenie. (If you know, you know.)
By day, enjoy fairy tale dining with an enchanting view of Fantasyland and Prince Charming’s carousel. By evening, you’ll have a spectacular vantage point to watch the nighttime spectacular.
Picture it. Imagine watching the fireworks from inside the castle. At a window seat. While you finish your Clock Strikes Twelve dessert. “Hey Disney, add this to my bucket list.”
Perk #4: Being Inside Cinderella Castle
You’re not just having lunch in any ol’ castle. No. You get to go inside THE Castle. One of the most famous and recognizable castles in the world.
A castle so iconic, you’re probably using a photo of it as your Zoom background.
Until you get the keys to the Cinderella Castle Suite*, a reservation at Cinderella’s Royal Table is the closest you’ll get to living like Disney royalty.
*Psst! Wanna peek inside the suite? Pick up a copy of our Once Upon A Time issue for a photo tour.
