« back to Birthdays
We will be taking a Disney cruise and then going to Disney next July. We will be there for our daughter's 15th birthday. I would like to set up a special birthday meal with either Ariel or Beauty and the Beast. Where do I find reservations for this?

Walt Disney World is a great place to celebrate a birthday, whether you're 5, 15 or 75! You have a few special options for meeting Ariel, Belle or the Beast during a meal.
Akershus Royal Dining Hall
in Norway at Epcot offers breakfast, lunch and dinner with a number of princesses, including Belle and Ariel.
Ariel normally is one of the princesses appearing breakfast, lunch and dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table
inside Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom as well.
And, if you want to dine inside the Beast's Castle, check out Be Our Guest
in New Fantasyland. It is spectacular, totally immersing you in Beauty and the Beast
. The Beast makes periodic appearances in the dining rooms during dinner, and guests can meet him and pose for photos after the meal.
We celebrated my daughter's 15th birthday there this year and had a great time.
All three of these venues are very popular, so I highly recommend making an advanced dining reservation.
If you are staying in a Walt Disney World resort you can make reservations for your entire visit 180 days in advance of your arrival. (Reservations for July 13 open January 14 at 6 a.m. Eastern time online or 7 a.m. by phone.)
Make sure you get your daughter a free birthday button from Guest
Relations. And let the restaurant know
you are celebrating her birthday when you check in. They often will
bring a special surprise for the birthday guest.
I hope that helps. Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you as you make your plans. Enjoy this special time with your family!
