5 Reasons Why We Love Cinderella’s Royal Table at Disney’s Magic Kingdom

A dining experience that sums up every fairy-tale dining dream – Cinderella’s Royal Table is the perfect place to snag one of those hard to get advanced dining reservations. So what makes us wish upon a star to get a reservation at this restaurant? Here are our top 5 reasons why we love Cinderella’s Royal Table enough to want to go back time and time again!


1 – INSIDE the Cinderella Castle

Let’s be honest, Disney World has some spectacular restaurants and dining locations – but it’s impossible to beat location when dining inside the iconic Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom. Cinderella’s Royal Table will always have a head above the rest for its’ superb location! The atmosphere inside is precisely as one would expect in a Medieval-themed castle. Chandelier lighting, stained glass windows, beautiful tables and chairs, and colorful royal flags make for a beautiful setting – and of course, let’s not forget about the stairwell leading guests to this magical place (an elevator is also available). Cinderella’s Royal Table truly is fit for all princesses and princes.

2 – Princesses Everywhere!

Upon entrance to Cinderella’s Royal Table, guests are welcomed by Cinderella with a keepsake photo and special meet and greet moment. Once upstairs and seated, Princesses seems to be just about everywhere greeting guests at every table. Princesses such as Snow White, Jasmine, Aurora, Rapunzel, and Ariel have been known to stop by for a visit! On the rare occasion, the Fairy Godmother and even Prince Charming have stopped by to say hello! It’s a great experience sitting and enjoying a meal while the Princesses come to you for photos and autographs. Save those Princess FastPass+ for attractions instead and meet a multitude of Princess all in one swoop!

3 – Meal Options with Perks

We especially love that Cinderella’s Royal Table serves all three main meals of the day – breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Each meal is a slightly different experience from the other. For example, breakfast is probably our favorite meal in the Castle because it provides guests a fantastic start to the day. You’ll have an opportunity to walk Main Street, U.S.A., on the way to breakfast! Take all the photos you’d like – and sometimes PhotoPass Cast Members are available to catch your quiet moment in Magic Kingdom before the park opens. At lunchtime, guests have the benefit of getting out of the heat in a central location above the crowds. Dinner time, especially during the Happily Ever After, is fun because you’ll have an opportunity to see a glimpse of some of the fireworks from the windows.

4 – Tasty Food Selections

It’s no wonder Cinderella invites guests inside the Castle to enjoy her Chef’s meals – the food is delicious! The breakfast options vary with some of our favorites being the Caramel Apple Stuffed French Toast and the Beef Tenderloin and Egg. Lunch and Dinner consist of plates like the Slow-roasted Pork Tenderloin and Chef’s Fish of the Day. Top off your meal with a delicious dessert such as Gus and Jaq’s Favorites, which is a heavenly white chocolate mousse! You’re sure to get your fill at Cinderella’s Royal Table.


5 – Magical Celebrations

If you are planning a special celebration for a loved one, you may want to look into Cinderella’s Royal Table for making that magical celebration even more special! Here are some packages that may be available with advanced requests: “Her Royal Highness Package” is a package is especially for young princesses who will receive a tiara, balloon, and a princess-themed cake. The “Glass Slipper Engagement” is a perfect way to propose with a glass slipper presented on a bed of rose petals, specialty slipper desserts and a celebratory toast, all with a photographer present to capture the moment! The “My Disney Fairy Tale Proclamation” provides a tiara, light-up crystal slipper, princess robe, and a personalized proclamation signed by your favorite fairy tale princess! Lastly, the “My Storybook Moment – Princess” is a Storybook Moment invitation to a royal tiara and princess sash, and an official proclamation signed by a favorite fairy tale princess.

Mike & Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with being Annual Passholders, Disney Vacation Club Members, and RunDisney participants. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire as many MagicBands as possible while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 13 years and are blessed with two children - our 8-year-old daughter and soon to be 2-year-old son. As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
