CInderella's Royal Table _ hardest reservations _ disney world

5. Cinderella’s Royal Table

Dining at Cinderella’s Royal Table is one of the most popular dining experiences in Walt Disney World. Guests dream about experiencing a meal inside the beautiful castle. One of the most complex reservations to get at Walt Disney World, Guests can enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

After being welcomed to the castle by Cinderella herself, Guests are taken up the grand staircase into the gorgeous dining hall. High archways, medieval flags, and beautiful stained glass create a magical atmosphere.

The meal is a prix fixe meal where Guests can pick from a select menu. At breakfast, various options are provided, such as a baked quiche, avocado toast, and caramel apple-stuff french toast.

Guests can choose an appetizer, entree, and dessert for lunch and dinner. Top entrees include pork tenderloin, slow-braised chicken, and gnocchi.

No matter when they are dining, Guests will be visited by various princesses. Ariel, Jasmine, Aurora, and Snow White are just a few that can appear at the castle.

The overall atmosphere at Cinderella’s Royal Table is genuinely magical. With pricing between $65 and $79, ensure you find something on the limited menu you will enjoy before booking.

4. Crystal Palace

For a festive and lively meal, visit Crystal Palace right off Main Street, U.S.A.. Here, Guests can enjoy a fun character experience featuring Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, and Eeyore. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner throughout the day, Guests will enjoy an all-they-care-to-eat buffet.

A typical Disney buffet experience, Crystal Palace will have Mickey waffles in the morning and carved meats and unique desserts in the evening. Crystal Palace is a fantastic option for a decent buffet within Magic Kingdom.

We love the character interactions here, and the buffet options are plentiful.

Liberty Tree

3. Liberty Tree Tavern

This family-style dining experience has been climbing the charts since Magic Kingdom reopened. Liberty Tree Tavern offers a traditional holiday meal featuring roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, and green beans. For those that love this holiday meal, you can get it throughout the day at Liberty Tree Tavern.

Because it is family-style, you can enjoy your favorite Thanksgiving dish as much as you want. We also love the atmosphere in this dining location. The decor is intriguing and fun to take in while enjoying your meal. We want to step into the colonial feel during our Magic Kingdom visit. There are six themed rooms; each focused on an important figure in US history. Look around before or after your meal to see some artifacts connected to these American figures.

2. The Plaza Restaurant

Hidden just off Main Street, U.S.A., U.S.A., The Plaza Restaurant is an excellent option for those wanting a casual meal in Magic Kingdom. The menu offers basic entrees like burgers, sandwiches, pot pies, and ice cream.

If you don’t want a large meal like what is offered at Liberty Tree Tavern but still want a sit-down experience, The Plaza Restauarnt is an excellent option. This is a little dining experience, so sometimes reservations can be tough to come by; however, since it isn’t well known, the hidden factor helps.

From a nice family dinner to a quick ice cream or breakfast stop, The Plaza Restauarnt is a great table service option when visiting Magic Kingdom.

1. Jungle Navigation Co, Ltd Skipper Canteen

Fans of the Jungle Cruise will want to ensure that they eat at this restaurant while in Magic Kingdom. Cast Members continue the same upbeat, funny, and cheesy spirit that Guests have come to love and expect on the Jungle Cruise.

The menu here is slightly more adventurous, so look before booking the reservations. You can enjoy top dishes with African, Asian, and Latin flair. Curried vegetable crew stew, hardy har char siu pork, and skipper dan’s dan noodles are just a few of the entrees that Guests can choose from during their meal.

The menu might be a little unique, but that is what we love about this dining option. Guests can experience some special entrees, all while being in Magic Kingdom. Only some people think you can find these dining experiences at Walt Disney World, but they are around.

This is also a great place to share some appetizers and enjoy a drink in Magic Kingdom.

Magic Kingdom has a handful of table service restaurants for Guests to choose from during their day in the Park. These are our top five options at this time. From great atmosphere and character interaction to top entree choices, these five have what we want and enjoy during our dining experience.

Take time to look over the menus to make sure that there is something that you will enjoy. If there is, book your advanced dining reservation 60 days before your check-in via My Disney Experience. Dining reservations go quickly, and you don’t want to miss out.
