Cinderella’s Royal Table officially reopens today, but the restaurant had a soft opening yesterday, and guests were treated to a few surprises!
Initially, Disney Parks announced that the restaurant would be opening on September 24th, but with a few changes; “Beginning Sept. 24, 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.”
Although breakfast is not being offered, guests noted that when they saw the menu yesterday, menu prices were changed- for the better! The new price to dine at Cinderella’s Royal Table is:
- Adults – Lunch and Dinner $62 (down from $75)
- Children – Lunch and Dinner $37 (down from $45)
Another surprise at the soft opening came from the princess herself! Although Disney had said there would be no princesses, Cinderella stopped by to greet diners (following social distancing guidelines, of course).
Instagram user, @mrsdsweet, documented the appearance. In the link above, be sure to click to the next slide for a video of Cinderella greeting guests.
Disney has not said if Cinderella will be a fixture at the restaurant, but if Topolino’s Terrace has taught us anything with character dining, it’s that it can be done safely and while following all new social distancing guidelines.
