Cinderella's Royal Table

Cinderella’s Royal Table is a one of our family's treats when we come to Walt Disney World. This restaurant is sure to make any little prince or princess’s dreams come true, and maybe even a few big people's, too. How often do you get to dine inside a castle--let alone Cinderella’s castle? This restaurant offers a character breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The entrance for the restaurant is located to the left of the castle, if you looking from Fantasyland. As you enter, you come into this beautiful great room with a giant stone fireplace and huge, vaulted ceilings. There are thrones where you can rest your bum while you wait for your table. You may even get a visit from Cinderella herself.

After your table is ready, you proceed either by elevator or by spiral staircase to the second floor, where the dining area is. It is this gorgeous restaurant where the waitstaff is dressed for the occasion. Don’t worry; you don’t have to be. There are large stained-glass windows all the way around the restaurant that give you views of Fantasyland. If you have children, you may want to request a table close to the window. It will provide entertainment. This restaurant has large, wood-beamed ceilings and linen on the tables, with goblets for water and sodas.

Lunch is significantly cheaper than dinner, but both are amazing. To start, your server provides you with a roll and Mickey Mouse-shaped butter. For my entrée, I had prime rib. I like a good prime rib, and this was good--a perfect cut, not too big or too small, but just right. Then, for dessert, we had a chocolate soufflé cake that was on a white plate, with the castle screened onto it in chocolate. As we cut it open, the chocolate oozed out onto the vanilla ice cream. They have a special fruit punch that comes in a souvenir glass with the logo of the restaurant on it. Really, one of those glasses is worth it.

We have dined here several times, and every time, it is just as amazing. I would recommend it if you have children. We went to the character breakfast one time, and it was jam-packed. For those, go outside the park to one of the hotels. This restaurant does take reservations. I would suggest booking them as soon as you know you are going.
