    I remember many years ago LOL when eating in the castle was the number 1 reservation to get

    since then it's got more expensive and I dont see somany people trying to get into it

    Is it still great and worth the money?

    We took our DGDs to the castle in both 2001 and 2004. It was considerably cheaper then. Both times it was for breakfast. Donna and I have done Dinner there but I seriously doubt we would do it again.

    same here really :/ we could never get reservations but we were at the town hall one day and a lady noticed a birthday badge and asked if there's anything we'd want to try at magic kingdom. We said well we've always wanted to eat in the castle. She phoned them and asked if they could work some magic and voila, we had reservations!

    Unfortunately, the experience didn't really live up to the hype. The food was "ok" but nothing sensational and once in there it could've been anywhere really.

    I truly understand the wish to be in the castle, and it's great for those who want to meet the princesses, but as an overall experience I've always thought it's wayyyy overrated.

    We've done the breakfast once, but I wouldn't do it again. If you have little girls who love the princesses then it's possibly worth the expense for the experience.

    Definitely not worth it for the food I don't think but I liked eating in there and meeting so many princesses at once. We've only done breakfast before but will be trying dinner this time

    Well, I have to disagree. We had dinner thete for the first time last April and apart from having a great time, we had a wonderful meal!!!!

    The food was fresh and really well cooked, the desserts were superb and our server was super nice.

    We will most definitely go back :)

    We had dinner there last Sept and had an absolutely wonderful meal and time. It was 2 adults and we were seated by the window and saw Wishes right above us. The princesses were very attentive. It was awesome. The food was good too. That was an added bonus.

    I've been for breakfast a couple of times and it was ok. We never received the attention like we did at dinner.
