I swear, if I ever have a little girl I will buy her a princess dress and take her to Cinderella's castle to eat and meet the princesses!
If you like your breakfast on the indulgent side, then French toast is probably on the menu. At character breakfasts at Cinderella’s Royal Table in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, the French toast is a bit more decadent than most preparations. This preparation for Cinderella’s Royal Table’s Cheese French Toast from our 2002 recipe archive, illustrates how the chef quarters large cheese Danish, dunks them in a vanilla-scented flour and egg bath and then slips them into a deep fryer until crisp and golden brown.
For an optional topping, the chef sautes apple slices in butter and dusts the fruit with cinnamon and sugar before it is finished cooking. The result is a crowning touch of soft, not mushy, apples fit for a breakfast in any castle. At home, you can trim a few fat grams by using 2 percent milk for the egg and flour batter and purchasing lower-fat cheese Danish at the supermarket (check the frozen foods section).
Located in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, Cinderella’s Royal Table in Cinderella’s Castle is a storybook dining experience for lunch or dinner. Theme park admission is required. For dining information, call 407-939-3463.
