Breakfast is plated -- I think you have a choice of two entrees -- and includes good orange juice, croissants and muffins (including chocolate), fresh fruit, and coffee/milk/tea. You can ask for more of anything without extra charge, but with kids itching to get off to see the rides, we pretty much just ate what initially was served.
The food was good, the characters were fun, but in high demand, so you only got a bit of time with each, and there was a hefty wait even with the obligatory and very hard to obtain priority seating.

We made our reservations that day and had to wait a little over an hour to be seated. We were sent to a grand room with a stone fireplace and Cinderella’s chair to wait for our table. While you're waiting, Cinderella visits and you can have your picture taken with her.
If you want to be treated like royalty then this is the place to go. The kids are addressed as "prince" and "princess." The food was very good, but there was not a large selection. While we ate, Peter Pan and Captain Hook chased each other around the castle just outside where we sat. This was an experience that we won't forget. So, if you miss the character breakfast, don’t miss this opportunity to eat in the Castle. It was a dream come true!

The food is excellent--definitely not your average breakfast! The all-you-can-eat menu includes banana-stuffed French toast (half a banana covered in a sweet batter and brioche, baked and served hot), scrambled eggs, bacon, ham, fresh sliced fruit, scones, orange juice, coffee, and tea. Best of all, you get to sit and relax . . . all the food is brought to your table, and countless Disney characters will visit you while you enjoy your breakfast! On our visit, we got to take pictures with Peter Pan and Wendy, Cinderella, Snow White, Alice, and the Fairy Godmother.

What's so special about Cinderella's Royal Table?
You may be wondering why otherwise rational adults would compete for the privilege of breakfasting with Cinderella and her friends. The food really is tasty and plentiful; I've yet to find a better apple-filled crepe on Disney property. There is also something wonderful about the light streaming through the tall, Gothic-style stained-glass windows.
Don't despair if you don't secure your table on the first try. If you begin trying for a date at the beginning of your Disney World sojourn, you can always try again tomorrow morning.
Still no luck? Mark your calendar for the date corresponding to the cancellation deadline for the day you want, and try again that morning. Or enjoy lunch or dinner in the castle, without characters or the same competition for seating.
If you can get a very early time, before the Magic Kingdom opens to the public, all the better. My daughters and I had Main Street to ourselves as we strolled to the castle for breakfast. Fortunately, the Disney photographers were out and about already to capture the moment for us.
If you are relying on Disney transportation, a special early bus (look for "Character Breakfast" on the marquee) will get you there with no problems. Have your priority-seating number handy as you pass through the special security entrance. A cast member will locate your name on a list of the morning's priority-seating holders, and you'll be on your way.
Disney management is expanding the range of opportunities for dining with the Princesses. The new Princess breakfast in the castle at Norway in Epcot has more seating, and even more characters. I must admit that we didn't enjoy the food and ambience as much there as in Cinderella's castle.
The 1900 Park Faire restaurant at the Grand Floridian, a monorail resort, has a brand-new character dinner featuring the Princesses. Something new for us to anticipate on our next trip!

I found breakfast to be a little hectic for me as I was constantly getting the autograph books ready and taking pictures. Despite this, it was our best breakfast. I thought the food was among the better breakfasts. The meal is served family style, and you just request more food when you are done with your inital portion. They had eggs, bacon, sausage and really good potatoes and french toast. The atmosphere here can't be beat. This was one of my daughter's favorite things we did all week.
Note that this is very hard to get reservations for. You have to call exactly 60 days in advance at 7:00 EST time or get very lucky.
