We just ate there for dinner. We had an early seating at 4:20.
As mentioned, dinner isn’t true character dining.
We were greeted by Cinderella and got a photo (that was prepaid for) taken with her. Since we’d already paid for it, they didn’t bother to pose us. It wasn’t a very good photo.
The Fairy Godmother and two mice (both girls) came out for a little show. The mice danced around the room and stopped at tables for quick pictures but no autographs. The Fairy Godmother walked around the room and did not pose for pictures, but did talk to the guests.
The food wasn’t that great. CRT is definitely more about eating in the castle than what you’re eating. They do a great job with the presentation of the food, but it’s not of great quality.
They give out little souvenirs to the children. Boys get swords and girls get wands. My sister and I are teenagers, but they gave us wands, too. :happy:
Dinner isn’t cheap. It’s $43 a person, and you don’t really get a character experience. If you want to meet and greet the characters, then I’d suggest breakfast or lunch. Breakfast is the least expensive at $37 a person and probably has the safest food offerings.
