    I'm booking a last minute Disney trip around my brother's return from Iraq, week of 6/15. its also our 1stDisney trip. My 6yro daughter loves princesses. I tryed to reserve at CRT but they're all booked. Is there any other way to get reservations?? HELP!!

    Please thank your brother for his service. I'm so glad to hear about his safe return.

    Unfortunately, I don't have any secret tips about getting into Cinderella's Royal Table. This is perhaps the most popular and difficult-to-get reservation in all of Walt Disney World. The CRT often becomes fully booked within minutes of becoming available, 90 days in advance. My only suggestion for getting into the CRT is to keep calling back at Disney Dining. Guests do sometimes cancel their reservations. It's a longshot, but there is a teeny possibility that you could catch it as another guest is canceling.

    However, even if that doesn't work out, you do have other options for your daughter. There is another princess-oriented character dining experience: the Princess Storybook meals at the Norway pavilion at Epcot. I would certainly try to get a reservation there. There is also the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, where your daughter could go to be made into a princess herself.

    There are also free character greetings with the princesses, where you don't need any sort of reservation at all. You can find a princess greeting line in the Toontown Hall of Fame in the Magic Kingdom. Additionally, Ariel is in her Grotto in the MK, Belle can often be found in the France pavilion at Epcot, Jasmine is often in Morocco or near the Magic Kingdom Carpets ride, and so on. If you need help finding where a specific princess will be appearing, you should stop by the guest relations office at any of the theme parks. Ask them to call the "character hotline" for you. They will be able to tell you where and when a specific character will be greeting guests during the time of your visit.
