The sheer presence of Cinderella’s castle is extremely stunning and the main focal point as soon as you enter Walt Disney World’s, Magic Kingdom! Complete enchantment ensues, and fantasy makes you feel like you are caught up in a fairy tale.
To further enhance this magical experience, imagine visiting and dining inside Cinderella’s Castle with Disney princesses. As you enter the castle, the stage is set for an awestruck experience and appreciation of fine works of art in so many details. As you wait for your “Royal Family” to be announced, you get a photo opportunity and meet and greet with the royal host, Cinderella. She spends time with you and your guests, shares some stories, some hugs, and possibly a dance twirl or two. Cinderella is the epitome of a wonderful, gracious host and invites you to join her fellow princess friends upstairs.
The castle’s enchanting beauty continues as you walk up to the dining room. The walls are adorned with stained glass windows, coats of arms, medieval flags, and dark wood. Your arrival is complete as you enter the regal dining room accompanied by a detailed cathedral ceiling, grand light fixtures, and ornate arched windows overlooking Fantasyland. After all, this is the centerpiece of the fantasy and magic of Disney World.
The dining room is divided into three sections all with an open view. There is a beautiful, main dining room, which is flanked by two rooms on either side.
Once seated, all are given “Wishing Stars.” Little princesses are given magic wands, and the young princes are given swords.
Then, more magic continues as you order breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Cinderella’s princess friends are individually announced and make their way whimsically throughout the dining rooms to meet with their guests for some hugs, conversation, and photo opportunities. The three princesses that always seem consistent at Cinderella’s Royal Table are Princess Aurora, Princess Snow White, Princess Ariel, and then there is often a switch between Princess Jasmine and Princess Rapunzel.
During your dining, there is a point when the lights dim and all guests are to close their eyes and make a wish upon their stars and say, “Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo!” When you open your eyes, the ceiling dazzles with little shimmers of lights! Dreams can come true!
