Finally! I made it to Cinderella's Royal Table for a meal with the princess characters! For a long while, only the uber-popular character breakfast was offered, but recently, they have made lunch a character dining experience also.
While I was there, we saw Mary Poppins, Aurora, Snow White, Belle, and Cinderella.
Lunch is $23.99, which includes a tasting plate appetizer, an entrée, and a pre-selected dessert.
I ordered Major Domo's Favorite Pie, which was "Prime Rib of beef simmered in rich cabernet sauce, served with mashed potatoes and sautéed vegetables, crowning a light pastry." It was a good portion, and delicious to boot. I wasn't crazy about the dessert, "Blueberry Buckle Cobber with lemon ice cream and finished with creme fraiche." It was refreshing, but I'm a fan of neither blueberry nor lemon.
The interior of the restaurant is spectacular. You will not believe that you are walking THROUGH the infamous castle! The lobby area was occupied by the Fairy Godmother. We climbed the royal looking stairs into the restaurant itself. Make sure to get a good look at the ceiling! It truly looks like a castle from a fairy tale. You may also find yourself sitting next to a gorgeous stained-glass window overlooking Fantasyland.
This is a great dining experience for all ages. Don't hesitate to go to the character dining meals without kids (my friend and I didn't!). However, I do hear that the dinner there is outstanding and sans characters. This place is not to be missed!
