Cinderella is my favorite princess. I love that she is an abuse survivor and loves greatly. The classic animated film is something I watch over and over again. The Disney animators did an amazing job bringing their version of her story to the screen. The fact that Walt Disney World is the home of Cinderella’s castle makes my day! If you love Cinderella there are many experiences you must add to your must-do list!
10 Must-Do Disney Experiences for the Cinderella Fan
Dine at 1900 Park Fare for Lunch or Dinner
This dining experience has not yet returned. I will update the post when it does.
During lunch and dinner Cinderella, Prince Charming, The Tremaine’s, and the Fairy Godmother join you for your meal. I have personally done this meal several times and have never had a poor experience. The food is good, but the interaction is awesome! The meal is located at the Grand Floridian and is an all-you-care-to-eat character buffet.
Meet Cinderella at Princess Fairytale Hall
You can meet Cinderella at Princess Fairytale Hall for a picture. If you wait until during Enchantment or after her wait is even less. While Princess Fairytale Hall is available as a Lightning Lane with Genie+, it is a low-priority selection since the wait is indoors.
Dine at Cinderella’s Royal Table
I haven’t personally done this experience yet, but it is on my bucket list. Cinderella’s Royal Table is inside the castle and gives you a whole different perspective of Fantasyland. You meet more than just Cinderella too, other Disney princesses join her.
Girls aged 3-12 can experience the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
Little girls can get transformed into their favorite princesses during this experience by a Fairy Godmother in training. It is a little pricey, but the experience is once in a lifetime. I do see that the hairstyles they use pull the hair really tight, so make sure your little one can handle that or request a different, more relaxed style from the stylist. There are three locations for the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique: Magic Kingdom (inside the castle), the Grand Floridian (has not reopened yet), and Disney Springs (has not reopened yet).
Ride Prince Charming’s Regal Carousel
Behind the castle is her carousel. It is so beautiful to ride at night. You can even ride Cinderella’s horse. Her horse is the one with the golden ribbon on its’ tail.
Get a picture of/with Cinderella’s Fountain
See the Beautiful Cinderella Mosaic within Cinderella’s Castle
I love the history and symbolism in the mural. Notice the colors of the stepsister’s faces, the gold details, and so much more.
Make a Wish at the Cinderella Wishing Well
Unlike the other fountains and places where guests drop coins, this fountain regularly gets cleaned out and the money goes towards the Foundation for Foster Children.
See Cinderella in the Festival of Fantasy Parade
The Festival of Fantasy Parade has a very beautiful float showcasing Cinderella, Prince Charming, the mice, the pink dress she alters, and lots of other great details.
See the Cinderella Castle all dressed up in lights for Christmas
Cinderella Castle is a beautiful sight that often brings tears to my eyes all the time. During Christmas, the castle is all dressed in lights and is gorgeous. Now for the past three years, Elsa has been lighting the castle. Before that, the Fairy Godmother granted Cinderella’s wish for a sparkly castle. I am hoping soon that Cinderella’s wish comes true again. I am over Elsa stealing Cindy’s spotlight.
Other Cinderella Experiences:
- Buy Cinderella Mouse Ears.
- Disneybound as Cinderella
- Meet the Fairy Godmother and the Step Sisters. These characters rotate on the backside of the castle.
- Dine at Akershus– Cinderella is one of the princesses you dine with.
What is your favorite Cinderella experience?
