Cinderella’s Royal Table Reopening with No Princesses Starting September 24th at the Magic Kingdom

***** Beginning Sept. 24th , guests can enjoy dining in the enchanted, fairytale setting of Cinderella’s Royal Table at Magic Kingdom Park. Enjoy a delicious regal banquet with unforgettable main courses ranging from roasted chicken breast and tenderloin of beef to chef’s fish of the day.

The princesses will be taking a break from their royal duties greeting guests, but there will be plenty of delicious fare and fun to be enjoyed in this beautiful, one-of-a-kind restaurant.

Meal pricing is currently listed as follows:

Breakfast – $62.00 for Adults / $37.00 for Children Ages 3-9 (plus tax and gratuity)

Lunch – $75.00 for Adults / $45.00 for Children Ages 3-9 (plus tax and gratuity)

Dinner – $75.00 for Adults / $45.00 for Children Ages 3-9 (plus tax and gratuity)

We’ve eaten here several times now.

The food is OK, but generally too heavy a meal for lunch or dinner. Breakfast is the best meal there by far.

For $75/person, we won’t go again until Cinderella and the rest of the princesses return.

Cinderella's Royal Table

Cinderella’s Royal Table History:

Cinderella’s Royal Table opened its doors in October of 1971 under a very different name. Oddly, it was named King Stefan’s Banquet Hall after Sleeping Beauty’s father, although it was located within Cinderella Castle with the Sleeping Beauty Castle being in Disneyland.

This was due to the fact that Disney Imagineers wanted to give it a regal name.  Since Cinderella’s father was unnamed (as was her husband, Prince Charming’s, royal father) and there were no well-known characters that met the royal criteria, the restaurant was named after Sleeping Beauty’s father, King Stephan.

It was not until April 28, 1997, after being open almost 26 years, that it was renamed to Cinderella’s Royal Table, ending the confusion of its name.

Very pretty inside!

We like this restaurant better for lunch than for an overly-long dinner.  Breakfast is the best meal that they serve here and we recommend that meal.

We also wish that the food was a little lighter in keeping with a mid-day meal and hot, hot, hot and humid Florida days.  All the entrees served are very heavy and very calorie dense.

Disney should consider a more “California”-inspired menu for lunch! More salads, more sandwiches (club), more meals < 700 calories.
