    We do the breakfast every trip and keep coming back. Yes, it is expensive and I could probably do without the picture each time, but it is nice to see my daughter in each and how she has grown. Food for breakfast is always excellent and we will continue to experience this until my daughter tells me she doesn’t want to anymore, which I am hoping won’t be for a long time!

    My husband and I ate breakfast at CRT on June 19,2011. We were celebrating our anniversary. It had been a dream of mine to dine in the castle and “meet Cinderella”. Even though we are “grown-ups” we still had a blast and enjoyed ourselves. The atmosphere, service and characters were outstanding. Other than Cindrella (who you only see for the pic before you eat), we saw Belle, Aurora, Ariel and Snow White. Each one took the time to chat and do pics and Belle and Snow White even made a Hello video to send to my niece. Food was average. Nothing impressive. Sausage was kind of bland. I did not try the french toast sticks .The pastries were excellent as well as the potatoes.
    It was definitely a magical way to begin a wonderful day at WDW and hopefully I can do it again!!

    We visit CRT every year. We have 4 boys and they still love this meal. There’s something about eating in a castle, no matter who you are! The character interaction before the meal is great. If you make reservations for the first seating of the meal, you can get some quiet time with Cinderella before heading upstairs. The pictures are included in your meal, which is always a nice touch. My boys enjoy meeting the princesses as they come to our table and they always seem to be able to chat with our boys about something interesting. The kids are given a surprise – wands for the girls and swords for the boys – but if your princess would rather a sword, just let them know. This is a perfect combination of good food for mom and dad and a fun time for the kids.

    My Family of 5 ate here in 2008 and we all loved it. We are going back in Nov. 2011. I loved it just as much as my daughter did.

    Okay for Couples: Yes. A honeymooning couple sat at the table next to us.

    Be Sure to Try: They served some type of fruit filled pancake. It was truly the best breakfast food I have ever had.

    General Tips: ADR. On the first day eligible. I made the mistake of waiting. I called every day twice a day for 6 weeks to get my reservation. It was well worth it!!!!

    Extra Comments: If you can possibly get first reservation of day, you can get into MK early! To walk down Main Street toward the castle with no one in front of you was truly priceless!

    Okay for Children: Absolutely! Little “princesses” get a magic wand, little “princes” get a magic sword, and all kids get a wishing star, a kids’ menu with activities on it, and crayons.

    Okay for Couples: Yes, the setting is beautiful and romantic – just tell the Princesses who come to your table that your “Prince Charming” is taken!

    Be Sure to Try: The Pasta al Pomodoro was delicious. The vegetables were fresh, the pasta was cooked to a perfect al dente, and the sauce was tasty.

    General Tips: This is not news to most WDW freaks – but make those ressies 180 days out!

    TheMouseForLess Tip: I ate my pasta until I was stuffed and got about 1/3 of the way through it!

    Extra Comments: The tablecloths are covered with carriage shaped confetti. My daughter scooped up some to take home as souvenirs!

    Okay for Children: Great for a child that they get to meet Cinderella in the lobby and get their picture taken. Getting to eat inside the castle was a highlight.

    Okay for Couples: Who doesn’t want to eat inside the castle, of course any couple would enjoy it.

    Be Sure to Try: The corn and crab soup is good, they garnish with a heart on top when it is served.

    General Tips: We lucked out and we were seated by the window so we got to see Fantasyland while we ate.

    TheMouseForLess Tip: Pay for this separately, not worth two dining credits.

    Extra Comments: Service was horrible and not enough room at our table for food, pictures, and wand. Only would go back to see the Princesses during Breakfast or Lunch but would never go back for dinner.

    Be Sure to Try: Taking pictures of an empty Fantasyland from the 2nd floor. Also take plenty of pictures in front of the castle (solo, with family, next to Walt’s statue, etc.) with no people around. I just had to think that part of the price of the meal was getting access to MK before the rest of the world and taking near deserted pictures of the park. It was magical.

    General tips: If you have kids, make sure they dress up for the pictures. We dressed our daughter up as Cinderella and our son was in his Mickey Mouse costume. It was adorable.

    TheMouseForLess tips: Pay when you book 180 days out so that cost is already out of the way well before your trip. Made it feel like a “free” meal for us.

    Extra Comments: We were on the DDP but didn’t use it for this meal because it was 2 credits.

    Food: Surprisingly it was quite good. My prime rib was medium well, just like I requested. It had a cabernet sauce which was quite good–just not enough of it. Had we not been chatting so much I would have ordered more sauce. DD polished off her pork tenderloin (but skipped the mushrooms, which had a sweet sauce). DS pretty much ate everything on his plate except for the potatoes (which were also really good.) Caroline’s DD also did a darn good job on that big piece of beef. Desserts are a bit pedestrian for such a grand meal though. Not even a creme brulee on the menu. LOL (Creme brulee is everywhere at Disney!) There was a chocolate buckle with cream cheese (was just a muffin with a filling), poached pear, and raspberry sorbet. I had the chocolate buckle which was good but nothing to rave about, DD had the pear which she enjoyed (but the pear was really small)and Caroline had the sorbet (which she didn’t really eat.) Caroline’s DD had the best dessert of all though: a bowl of vanilla ice cream with a chocolate crown on it.

    Service: Cheerful and happy server who had been with Disney for quite a child in various roles in the company. Knew the menu and the venue.

    Okay for Children: Uh, yeah. Its THE CASTLE.!

    Okay for Couples: You bet. This is probably among the best places for couples.

    Be Sure to Try: It was all good. At least the stuff that came to our table was good. The cinnamon butter with the pretzel bread was odd though.

    General tips: There are NO CHARACTERS in the dining room signing autographs. Cinderella is in the lobby and she poses for photos and signs books. There is a show during the dinner time where Suzy and Perla arrive and dance around the tables. Then the Fairy Godmother comes in and sings a bit and recognizes events. It really was quite nice and classy and the show just added to the special atmosphere of being in the castle.

    TheMouseForLess tips: Absolutely nothing “For Less” about this meal. At two credits on the dining plan, and fifty bucks per adult plate, its a big budget-buster. This was totally unplanned and impulsive (I never spend this much on food in two days at Disney) but since it sort of fell in my lap with my Disney friend I decided to take the plunge and go. After all, its THE CASTLE!!! I’ve probably done the breakfast four or five times and feel rushed in there. But the dinner was a very classy affair. The food was quite good.

    Extra Comments: Arrive early, and dress up for photos. As part of your dinner package you receive a really nice photo of the family with Cinderella (who sits in the lobby) and four 4×6 photos. They’re in a souvenier folder. Girls get a wand and boys get a sword.

    So my short and cheap trip is no longer cheap… but would YOU turn down a meal in the castle if it sort of fell into your lap? We had to eat, and its only money. Hadn’t been in the castle in a while and had never done the dinner. Was “worth it” to me to do this meal even though it was not anywhere close to being in the plan.

    Okay for Couples: Yes – but be prepared to see LOTS of little princesses running around!

    Be Sure to Try: Both of our apps were wonderful. We loved the corn/crab chowder (a little kick to it) and the veggie spring roll. The other app was the BLT salad, and personally I thought it looked a little “ordinary” so we didn’t go for that – you can get that kind of thing anywhere. Hubby thought the pork was a little tough, and my slab of prime rib was SO VERY HUGE I couldn’t finish it (and I can usually finish most anything.) I gave extra to hubby, and he couldn’t even finish it. So… come hungry.

    I was very disappointed with the desserts – would call them “ordinary” at best. Of the desserts we had, the Lemon ice cream was the best. I thought the chocolate mousse cake was very ordinary, and we didn’t end up finishing that either.

    General tips: Use DDE card, and request to sit next to the window so you can see the sunset over Fantasyland. We were by the elevator, which was fine – but we were in the traffic flow. Fairy Godmother comes out and does this big routine and interacts with everyone seated on the floor, so if you want that, request to be seated on the floor. Personally, I would prefer being by the stained glass windows.
    Also, I think everyone automatically thinks of “Breakfast” when they think of CRT – and we got dinner ressies for 4 like TWO WEEKS OUT! So – don’t overlook doing dinner, because it was really a nice thing. Our ressies were at 5:50, so it worked out that we were finished about 20 minutes before Wishes started.

    TheMouseForLess tips: The prime rib was HUGE. Also, use DDE card and tell them this when you make ressies. They didn’t ask for my # over the phone – but I did have to show the card when I got there. One GOOD thing about this is that you have to pay for this meal at the time you order (and it includes tip!), so it is a nice feeling to know that you show up, eat, and you aren’t even worried about the bill, or how much you are spending because it is already paid for. That was a major plus with the budget.

    Extra Comments: We had to wait about 15 minutes to be photographed with Cinderella! We had our daughter in a cute dress, but lots of girls were DECKED OUT in FRESH cindy outfits – like their parents had a bag at the park just for the dress. Also they had crown, shoes, bows in hair, etc. – something to keep in mind if you are into that. I thought having her in a cute dress would have been enough, but she was just in awe seeing all of the other little princesses walking around. The photos we got were GREAT and are normally priced around $26 at other character buffets (like Chef Mickey or Restaurantosaurus) so if you think about the price of this, minus discount for DDE and the fact that pictures are included, this was really a great deal.

    Okay for Couples: Yes, wonderful atmoshphere and decor
    Be Sure to Try: adult sampler very good, Major Domo pie is very good

    General tips: Make ADR asap! There is a restroom in the lobby great for changing little princesses into their dresses. The veiw from tables by the windows is the best!!!!!!

    Extra Comments: Loved celebrating my Bday , got us a great seat with a view and a bit more attention for kid’s from characters! Not sure if we will return at 2TS credits though.

    Food: – we really weren’t into the food they had. Eggs, some bacon, sausage, a fruit filled pastry, etc. It was decent, just not our style.

    Service: Our waiter was hysterical! He really made it fun for my son – who was complaining about getting kissed by all the princesses!

    General tips: MUST have ADRs. Get there a little bit early so you can get in line for the pictures with Cinderella as soon as possible -before the line gets unbearable.

    Extra Comments: The picture we received was priceless! A great memory.

    Be Sure to Try: nothing stood out

    General tips: HAVE to make that seating as early as possible! Try to get in before the park opens!!

    Extra Comments: Beautiful restaurant! If you get a seating before the park opens, be sure to take castle pics! There’s no crowds in the pics!!! The downside? Our service was terribly slow and the food was no longer warm. :( Sadly, the princesses seemed very rushed and breezed by the tables. On the up side, we saw Cinderella, Princess Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), Fairy Godmother, Belle, Snow White, and Mary Poppins.

    Atmosphere: 5 in the castle, 1 for character interaction

    Okay for Children: Our son loves the princesses but they did not spend any time to talk to him. It was take a quick picture only with the child and then they left just a hello and nothing else. How disappointing for a little boy who adores the princesses but would never admit it to his friends.

    Okay for Couples: Yes, but I think it is best left for kids since it is so hard to get.

    Be Sure to Try: Nothing was all that great to eat here but maybe I just expected more.

    General tips: Maybe encourage the princesses to interact a bit more. For speaking characters they interacted less than the non speaking characters we encountered at meals.

    TheMouseForLess tips: You can eat as much as you want so ask for seconds of anything you need if you can find your server.

    Extra Comments: I didn’t feel this place was worth the hype. We would not go back for breakfast but dinner was good.
