We did 3 character meals during our stay and this was the best one for little ones who want to meet the princess's. We met belle, aurora, Ariel, Cinderella and Snow White. They princess's come to your table and take a few minutes interacting with the children, taking photos and signing autograph books. When you arrive there is a photographer... More

We booked several months before we visited. We had to wait only about 5 mins before we were taken through and had our photo with Belle. The starters are all buffet style and consist of various salads, fruit, fish, prawns, bread etc. You choose your main course. My husband had the meatballs and loved them. I had the chicken, which...

I made this reservation 4 months in advance for a family visit with my parents and my children. The portrait with the Princess Aurora was really nice and we got 2 sets because our party was over 4 people. The food was a under average; my parents had the chicken which was ok but the risotto was under cooked. My... More

We had a 1:40 reservation. After standing in the sun for over 20 minutes we were finally taken in and then had our picture taken right away. The photographer was not as friendly as I'm accustomed to them being. Then because we had a party of 8 (with 4 adults and 4 children) we were squeezed in the back with... More

We were really looking forward to taking our daughter here and it was the first restaurant we booked before going on holiday. The Princesses were beautiful and all the children loved it and the atmosphere was electric. The food was very average and really over priced. The waitress we had looking after us never smiled once and was so wooden... More

We ate here on 4/8/14 our experience here was wonderful, the food was just fine, we had the chicken and mushroom ravioli entrees and they were good. The appetizer buffet was also very good. The princesses were very friendly and allowed for great pictures. The cost is the same as any other Disney character dining except you do get a... More

I cannot begin to tell you how much we enjoyed this princess breakfast. The food was very good, but to top it all off my 4 year old met all her favourite princess's . When the music plays the children line up next to a princess and take a walk around the restaurant, to see my little girl holding Ariel's... More

It's a great value of the dining plan at only one point and the breakfast is good. Plus, your child get's an 8x10 with the featured princess and it's free.

We had dinner here on Monday, March 10th. We ate here on our dining plan, so I do not know the true cost of the meal. Let me say first that on Sunday evening we had dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table in the Castle. This was a great experience & wonderful food. If you cannot get reservations at Cinderella's Royal...

You have to make a reservation online at the Disney site months in advance, but it's worth the wait. Every princess comes to your table and chat with you... besides, you can get pictures with all of them! It's so incredible how you can dive into this world of magic just by seeing them walking in the room.... I would... More
