Happy #tastytuesday friends! Today’s restaurant review is of the breakfast option at Cinderella’s Royal Table (CRT) in Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World. To get to CRT, you can walk under the Cinderella Castle to a check-in area at the back right side of the castle. CRT is considered a signature restaurant, and so it is 2 table credits on the Disney Dining Plan (DDP). CRT is also unique because it is one of the few character dining experience that needs to be paid in advanced or reserved using your 2 DDP credits. Gratuity is also included in your total cost for this meal, although I recommend tipping when using the DDP to secure the reservation.
When you make a reservation at CRT, please make sure you are timely, as your reservation will be called at the exact time you booked. For example, ours was at 10:10am. The one exception to this standard is if Walt Disney World transportation delays you in any way. On our November 2019 trip, the monorail was late and then was stopped for 20 minutes, which made us late to our reservation. The cast members at the check-in area understood our situation and let us in when we arrived. We were escorted inside the first floor of Cinderella Castle and into a waiting area to wait to be seated.
Now don’t be fooled- this is no normal waiting area! It’s actually a built in meet-and-great with Cinderella herself! She was so incredibly sweet and fun to talk to. I love this character interaction that you are able to have while waiting for your table, and it’s great for entertaining children during the wait as well.
We only waited about 10 minutes before being escorted upstairs to be seated in the restaurant. In my opinion, it doesn’t matter how old you are; you will still enjoy eating in Cinderella Castle! The restaurant itself is gorgeous with bright, regal colors all around.
Above, you can find the allergy friendly menu. The menu is prix fixed, so I was able to choose only the entree option. I was unable to have the pastries, which was fine with me because I wasn’t interested in having them at the time. I ordered a coffee with soy milk (as always!) and the traditional breakfast sans eggs, and I added the allergy friendly Mickey waffles.
I loved the traditional breakfast! The potatoes were great, and I don’t often get to eat them at breakfast in Walt Disney World. The sausage and bacon were good, but standard fair.
And the allergy friendly Mickey waffles were amazing as always!! And now, for the fun part…
…meeting all of the princesses! Jasmine made an appearance, as well as Aurora, Ariel, and Snow White.
Overall, I really do love this restaurant. The atmosphere is great, the characters are so sweet, and there is a special surprise for each guest! (I won’t spoil everything for you all.)
Although I very much enjoyed this experience (and much more than the dinner experience I had in 2017), the one downside to CRT is that it is rather pricey for what you get. Breakfast is currently $75.39 per adult, with prices going up for lunch and dinner, and the food is standard food Walt Disney World Quality. However, it is a great location for a first visit, special occasion, or for the die-hard princess lover.
I hope you enjoyed my review! Here’s to living our best and most delicious Disney lives. <3
